If you love…

If you love is a new feature on J’adore Happy Endings and be posted once a month. When I’m not reading books, working or doing fun stuff with friends I’m probably curled up on the couch watching a TV show. Every month I will tell you what I’m watching and which two books I recommend if you love the show as well.

Season two is going to start very soon and I’m super excited for it. I want it to start already. The show I’m talking about is Once Upon a Time. The show is about a women, Emma, who comes to Storybrooke, the town where her son she gave up for adoption lives. Everyone who lives in Storybrooke is a fairytale character under a curse. The curse that only the daughter of Snow White can undo to save them. And guess who the daughter is? Yep, Emma. There is so much more to this show than I’m telling you, but you just have to watch it. It’s super entertaining and I love it! It’s one of my favourite TV shows.

Keywords: Fairy-tale, curse, good vs. evil.

If you love Once Upon a Time, you will love...

When Rose Wakes Up by Christopher Golden
A unique spin of Sleeping Beauty. Such great characters, the aunts especially reminded me of the aunts in the movie Practical Magic. Loving, caring and just so considerate. The dreams Rose had were fantastic. Magical!

Impossible by Nancy Werlin
The plot, the characters & the ending is awesome. Gosh, the last two pages put a big, happy smile on my face and really that’s how I like a story to end. And while reading this book the whole time I was picturing the Elfin Knight looking like Richard Armitage. If a story can do that, it always gets bonus points. Lol.

I still need to watch Once Upon a Time. I keep missing it. :( Hopefully NetFlix will have it for me.

I still need to read Impossible but I did read Extraordinary. Might have to check out When Rose Wakes!

I've actually never once seen an episode of Once Upon a Time, but I've heard so many great things about it! The concept sounds so cool. Once I check out an episode, I'll have to check out these books, too. Fabulous post, Nina! :)

I still need to see "Once" but this is a great idea! And I especially love fairy tale retellings so I look forward to checking those two books out! Especially the one with Mr. Richard Elfin Knight Armitage! :)

Oh...this is a great feature! I love connecting things that are not usually associated with reading to books. Fun!

I read and loved Impossible but I haven't read When Rose Wakes yet. I started watching Once Upon a Time when it came out, but stopped a couple episodes in. I think I'll have to restart it sometime!

@Melissa (Books and Things): I haven't read Extraordinary. But, I loved Impossible, so I should try it. ;)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages)  – (26 september 2012 om 17:03)  

Oh I'm looking forward to watching it as well. :) Very soon it'll be back. :) And thanks for the books that are close to the same. :) Thank you and here's to season 2!

@Melissa: You're welcome! :) Yeah, I hope season 2 is going to rock! ;)
