Cinderella and I
Cinderella has always been my #1 favorite Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid are very close behind. Why do I love Cinderella? Well besides the singing mice, it is the essence of hope. Hope that we can overcome our hardest trials in life.

My Favorites
Disney's Cinderella (above) and the 3rd one A Twist in Time
True love shall always prevail

Ever After
Who doesn't love this version, such beautiful amazing costumes. Drew just does amazing strong will Cinderella character.

Ella Enchanted 
I love Prince Charmont and I love the strength of Ella's character.

Roger & Hammerstein's Cinderella 
I love the diversity of this movie and the singing is just wonderful.

My Most Recent Cinderella Excursions
Cinderella at The 5th Avenue Theatre
On December 22nd I went with a friend to the 5th Avenue Theatre to see Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella 
This was an awesome production and I absolutely loved it

Marissa Meyer's Cinder Launch Party
 I was able to attend the Cinder Launch Party and it was awesome. There was so many people there, lots of family and friends there to support her, the signing line was long and the little story she shared with us was wonderful. Check out my full Event Recap and see more pictures.

Ah, Cinderella, one of the most re-told fairy tales ever. Of course, most of the retellings are pretty great! On your list, Cinder is the only one I've read, though all the others look really interesting. Cinder was a pretty good read. I didn't like the writing much, but the story was different.

What a neat 'challenge'! I have read two of the three that you mentioned... I should try Bound as I have not yet read that one. I have also read Ella Enchanted, Cinder Edna (cute MG book) and a few others. I loved Cinder, as I am sure you saw on my blog! Ever After is one of my favorite 'go-to' movies. Enjoy Cinder!
