So another avenue for my inner child is to read fairytale retellings. Novels such as John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things and Gregory Maguire's Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister are some of my favourites. So I was pretty stoked when I came across Happily Ever After.
"Happily Ever After" is a star-studded book of fairy tales, featuring an introduction by Bill Willingham ('Fables') and stories by Gregory Maguire, Susanna Clarke, Karen Joy Fowler, Charles de Lint, Holly Black, Garth Nix, Kelly Link, Peter Straub, Neil Gaiman, Patricia Briggs, and many other fantasy luminaries. - from bookdepository.com
Guess I'll be adding that to my Christmas wishlist!
Just as a side note... One Chocolate Box is one month old today! Yay!
