British Invasion: Fairy Tale Edition (Part I)

Letters to Zell is a part of the sneak preview program, UK Kindle First, for the month of June. Since most of the book takes place in Los Angeles, I thought it might be nice to celebrate Zell’s British readership by introducing the princesses with a few of their favorite things from across the pond. Kindle First is also a brand new feature in Australia, so if you’ve stumbled here from down under, I’ve slipped a few songs, books, and miscellany in here for you, too. xo

One thought on “British Invasion: Fairy Tale Edition (Part I)

  1. Your playlist is a fun listen. Being painfully old and out of touch since about 1989, I’ve caught some fresh air. Thanks for sharing.
