Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is a really fun one (in fact I’ve been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks now) Top Ten Fairy Tale Retellings I’ve Read/Want to read. Retellings are incredibly trendy right now, and I have to say that I’ve caught the bug too. I’m going to split this up between retellings I’ve already read, and those I’d like to read.
Top Fairy-tale Retellings I’ve Read
1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I’m going to include all three books that are currently out in this one. I love the fresh spin that Meyer gives to the characters and their stories.
2. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
This is one that I read last month and I adored it. I hope to do a discussion about it on my Booktube channel this month!
Top Retellings I Want to Read
1. Winter by Marissa Meyer
This is coming out later this year and I can’t wait to see what the adventures are like in the next Lunar Chronicles book.
2. Splintered by A.G. Howard
I love Alice in Wonderland and have seen this retelling all over book blogs. Some day I will have time to read this one, someday.
3. The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
A Thousand and One Nights retold— this book has gotten rave reviews all over booktube and I need to read it this fall!
4. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Another Little Red Riding Hood retelling, but this one looks fun and unique!
5. Between the Lines and Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
These books look so cute and while I’m not a fan of Picoult’s other books, her YA looks fun and a bit more light-hearted.
6. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
I’ve read very little Holly Black (I know, shame on me!) but this book looks fantastic!
I guess I’m not as well-read in fairy tale retellings as I thought I was! Can you recommend some good ones to me?
