Ten Fairytale Retellings I Want to Read

Top Ten Tuesday button

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are talking about our Ten Fairytale Retellings We’ve read or Want to Read. I was not going to participate in this topic because I don’t read a lot of fairytale retellings, being such a contemporary fan myself. But there are actually several I have my eye on!

Here are Ten Fairytale Retellings I Want to Read:

    Yes, definitely curious about “The Shadow Queen.” It looks and sounds amazing. Fabulous list. 🙂

  2. We had quite a few similar choices :). I’m so excited for The Shadow Queen. I love when retellings are more dark and twisted. A Court of Thorns and Roses does a great job of that. I am realizing now that in my post I put an Aladdin retelling for The Forbidden Wish, when technically it’s an Arabian Nights retelling. Oops!

    I really want to read The Shadow Queen, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Uprooted.

    My highest recommendation when it comes to fairy tale retellings would be Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay. It’s kind of a fairy tale retelling based on Sleeping Beauty. I say kind of because it’s about Sleeping Beauty’s daughter.

  4. I’ve definitely had my eyes on The Shadow Queen and The Forbidden Wish! Great picks!

    Check out my TTT.

  5. This was such a fun post idea this week. I love retellings and you picked some good ones. Drop by my blog and sign up for my give-away. It relates to today’s meme.

    Wow, a Handless Maiden retelling? That sounds ominous. I want to read it! The Arabian Nights books also sound exciting. I worked a lot with the 1001 Nights as a storyteller, I am curious about other people’s versions 🙂

    Out of these, I really want to read Grounded and The Isle of the Lost! I am also a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty, so I want to try out as many retellings as I can find! ^^ ACOTAR is one of my favourite books I’ve read this year, and I definitely recommend it to everyone who loves Beauty and the Beast (and faeries)!

  8. That’s not a genre I gravitate towards but my sister loves them.

    I have the Shadow Queen, a thousand nights and ACOTAR on my list as well.
    I did not know that The sacred Life of Minnow Bly was a fairytale retelling. I really want to read that book but now i am even more interested, especially since i actually know that original tale and i want to see how they mix that with the cult part of the book. thank you for pointing that out. 🙂
    i have not heard of the forbidden wish before but that sounds fantastic, and i will look into that.

    Great list 🙂
