August 4: Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read
This retelling was so different then a lot of others about Beauty and the beast that it really blew me out of the water with how good it was.
Another amazing retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Very dark compared to others. Very good read.
A really cool retelling of The Wizard of Oz based on the original series of kids books with a new twist.
4. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
One of the MOST AMAZING retellings you will ever read. And its about Peter Pan, well…. More like Tiger Lily’s version of what really went down. Be warned you will cry your heart out.
5. Entwined by Heather Dixon
A great read on the tale of the 12 dancing sisters in the silver forest. You will not regret it.
A fresh new look at classic tales such as, Cinderella, Little red ridding hood, Rapunzel, and snow white.
One of my favorite retellings of all time. Full of great imagery and detail, so much so that you feel as if you are there.
A dark and a bit twisted version of Alice in Wonderland, but in a good way.
A normal retelling of Beauty and the Beast, very simple.
Amazing retelling of 1,000 Arabian Nights
I actually have a lot more then ten retellings that I have read and loved. These are just couple from my retelling shelf.
