Cinderella Society Contest

The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy

First off, thank you to Daisy Whitney, author of the upcoming novel Mockingbirds, for hosting this tour.

The Cinderella Society is Kay Cassidy's debut novel and it's all about girl power. Jess, our main character, is recruited to join a secret society called The Cinderella Society. The goal of the Cindy's is "celebrate your strength, embrace your future, be extraordinary." (ARC p. 56)

I'm in the middle of reading this book right now and I'm really enjoying the book so far. It's a great read-especially for girls who need a reminder of how awesome they are.

We want to share the girl power with you, so as part of The Cinderella Society Blog Tour, each stop is giving away a copy! What do you have to do to win? Leave a comment with a story/line/quote/thought about what it means to be empowered as a teenage girl. I can't wait to see what everyone says. The winner will receive a copy of The Cinderella Society.

And that's not all! The winners from all the blog stops will be entered into a grand prize drawing and the blog tour memebers will pick a winner who will recieve a signed copy of The Cinderella Society and $100 donated in her name to
Girls Inc.

This contest will end April 28th at midnight Central Time. Must have US address for shipping. Ages 13+.


  1. Being empowered as a teenage girl means to stick to what you believe, no matter what others may think of it!

  2. To me is being your self and not letting some one choose how you live life. Or someone telling you how to act or wear

  3. To be empowered as a teenage girl means to always ALWAYS stand up for what you believe in. To always try to do the right thing, and to always, ALWAYS feel GOOD about yourself.
    Be confident, even if you're not fake it, and it will come to you naturally.
    Be like Katie Holmes, as she said once "I really can't deny it, I am who I am. I'm pretty normal. I'm not that smooth type of girl. I run into things, I trip, I spill food. I say stupid things... I really don't have it all together."

    Oh and it also means TO READ! Haha, as James Walker once said 'I never knew a girl who was ruined by a book.'

    Being empowered as a teenage girl means that you do NOT need a man, or anyone for that matter to complete you,
    you complete yourself.

  4. Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
    Eleanor Roosevelt

    Eleanor Roosevelt has some of my favorite empowering quotes.

    No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. (As featured in The Princess Diaries movie)
    A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.

  5. Being empowered means to take control of your own life proudly, in my opinion. You may need help, I'll admit, but you also need strength. You must have strong will and stick to what you believe in. You shouldn't sway your opinion, no matter what other people say about it. Plus, you always have to feel good about yourself. Walk down the hallways with your head held high and don't let anyone bring you down. Stay strong, believe in yourself, and don't be afraid to ask for help. That's what I think empowerment means.


  6. It means doing what makes you happy and it's a huge plus if you make others happy ;)


  7. This comment has been removed by the author.

  8. Can I give in another quote?

    It means to be like Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries [Meg Cabot].
    A 'Self-Rescuing' Princess, strong but perfectly imperfect. :)

    In the words of Meg herself [Girls]'Who stand up for themselves and have goals outside of snagging a man (but still love men, exasperating though they can be at times).'

    Haha, I love Meg.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
