Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week is broken in to two categories, favorite fairytale retellings and fairytale retellings that are on our TBR. Here are my choices!
Favorite fairytale retellings:
- The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Seems like I’ve been talking about Marissa a lot lately.. But all with good reason! Her books are amazing.
- Cruel Beauty by Rosemund Hodge: Honestly I loved this book so much! It’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast which is one of my favorites, but it’s got some mythology thrown in and it’s just an amazingly done retelling!
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: Honestly this is the first book I read of hers (now before you yell at me, I am currently reading Throne of Glass series) but I really love her characters and her writing style!
- Splintered by A.G. Howard: I loved this dark twist on Alice in Wonderland! I have to say I am not a fan of Alice, but with books like this and the Alice mini-series, I’m starting to like Alice a lot more.
- Enslave by Cathy Yargley: This is not in any way shape or form a YA book! This is an adult retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but it is one I couldn’t leave off my list!
- Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: This is another one I am not a fan of the original but the dark retelling is really intriguing to me!
- Abandon by Meg Cabot: I absolutely love mythology! Especially Hades and Persephone!
Fairytale books on my TBR:
- Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell: This is another retelling of Cinderella but the cover of it looks simply amazing! I can’t wait till it come out later this month!
- The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury: This one is about Aladdin and a jinni named Zahra! I am super excited and this is another one where the cover is absolutely beautiful!
- Winter by Marissa Meyer: This book just need to be in my hands as of right now! I can’t wait to find out what happens!
That is my list! Honestly I couldn’t have done a lot more than 10! I really love fairytales! I love different takes or authors that add things to the story that no other author has done before! But you guys should join in!
