Blog Tour for Happily!

Blog Tour Banner - Recommended for _Featured Image_

I’m very excited to share this week’s post with you! It’s not one of my usual book reviews. Instead, I will be participating in a blog tour for Happily, a book by one of my writing friends, Chauncey Rogers. Some of you might remember seeing my review of Happily back in February. In case you missed it, you can read it here.

I have the honor of wrapping up the blog tour today! In the blurb below, Chauncey talks about a fun song he would pick for an “Ending Credits Song,” for when the book will be adapted into a movie (as we all hope it will!). I hadn’t actually heard this song before now, but I love it. It’s a perfect fit, even if the shoe isn’t!

Thank you, Rosie, for letting me end my blog tour on your lovely blog!

I suspect that most people who write stories dream of the day that their story might be turned into a movie. I don’t know about other authors, but I particularly enjoy daydreaming about what song might be used for the “Ending Credits Song.” I’m not sure why that is. It might just be because some of my favorite songs have been used as ending credits songs, or because some of my favorite movies also have wonderful ending credits songs.

Whatever it is, it’s something I enjoy thinking about, whether or not the day ever comes.

As this is the end of the blog tour, I thought it might be appropriate to share an “Ending Credits Song” here, as well as to thank everyone who has participated.
Thank you, each and every one. This has been a great experience for me, and I hope it has been equally wonderful for the rest of you.

Now, as for the ending credits song, I will admit that I didn’t choose this song out personally. Instead, my mother happened to hear it being played while she was out shopping. She’d recently finished reading Happily, and felt that this song would make a wonderful ending credits song.

So, without further ado, I give you “I Believe in You” by Michael Bublé:

Thank you! And until next time, I wish you only the very best.

Belle’s Library


Title: Belle’s Library
Author: Brittany Rubiano
Genre: a collections of quotes and musings
Publisher: Disney Press
Release Date: January 31st, 2017

A collection of literary quotes and inspirational musings

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, you will notice that I have a thing for retellings – particularly those of Beauty and the Beast. In addition to last week’s review of As Old As Time, I have also reviewed The Beast WithinCruel BeautyThe Merchant’s Daughter, and A Court of Thorns and Roses. You might say I’m a little obsessed. I mean, a girl who loves her books and craves adventure? I’m there.

So imagine my delight when Disney Press released this book last year, a couple months before the release of the breathtaking remake starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. I simply had to have it. Belle’s Library is a beautiful collection of “inspiring quotes from some of Belle’s favorite books, as well as her insightful notes and coloring drawings” (from back of book). It is the kind of book you could easily peruse in a single sitting, on a lazy afternoon with a cup of tea. I love having it as a part of my own library!

As Old As Time

Title: As Old As Time: A Twisted Tale
Author: Liz Braswell
Series: Twisted Tales, 3
Genre: Disney, Fairytale, Fantasy, YA
Publisher: Disney Press
Release Date: September 6th, 2016

What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?

Similar to the Villains series I reviewed earlier this year, this series takes beloved stories from classic Disney movies and twists them into something new and unexpected. This book tells the story of Beauty and the Beast. As the tagline suggests, the twist of this tale is that Belle’s mother is the enchantress who curses the Beast in the beginning of the story.

As Old As Time follows the storyline of Beauty and the Beast pretty closely – up till Belle finds the enchanted rose in the West Wing. Upon finding this rose, Belle touches it and immediately learns the truth – the truth of who her mother was, and what happened to the Beast and his cursed household. Belle and the Beast must work together if they are to uncover the mystery surrounding the castle and break the enchantress’ curse.
