Top Ten Fairy-tale RetellingsTuesday, August 04, 2015
Beastly by Alex Flinn --- Beastly was probably the first retelling I read. It was so good that I purchased all the other retellings Flinn writes.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge --- Haven't read this one yet. It's going to happen sometime soon because I've heard so many good things about it.
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine--- I read this way back in middle school and remember loving it. The movie (complete with odd dancing numbers)--which doesn't follow the book at all-- will forever be a favorite of mine because Hugh Dancy.
Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble --- Another one I haven't read. I bought this on mu Kindle a while back and really liked the sound of it.
A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan --- Sleeping Beauty with a twist? Yes, please.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer --- I am happily in love with this series. Cannot wait for Winter to release in the fall!
Enchanted by Althea Kontis --- Acquired this at BEA one year and, unfortunately, haven't read it yet. Love the cover though!
Entwined by Heather Dixon --- A retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses. It's magical. (my review)
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas --- This is another one everyone is in love with at the moment. I bought it the other day, succumbing to the pressure but haven't cracked the spine yet.
My Name is Rapunzel by K. C. Hilton--- I don't come across Rapunzel retellings often which is sad because I would totally read them.
