This week’s topic is top ten fairy tale retellings, and as I haven’t read very many of them I split the topic into the ones I have read and those I want to read.
Retellings I’ve Read
- Cinder, Marissa Meyer [Cinderella]
- Scarlet, Marissa Meyer [Red Riding Hood]
- Cress, Marissa Meyer [Rapunzel]
- Fairest, Marissa Meyer [Snow White]The Lightning Thief
- The Lightning Thief, Rick Riordan [Greek Myths]
I absolutely loved all of the Lunar Chronicles, They completely give a new perspective to classic tales. I enjoyed The Lightning Theif, but I’ve yet to read the rest of the series, and while Greek Mythology is technically not a fairy tale, I felt that because both mythology and fairy tales started as oral traditions they could be meshed together for this post.
RETELLINGS I want to READ
- Beastly, Alex Flinn [Beauty and the Beast]
- Bewitching, Alex Flinn [Cinderella]
- Towering, Alex Flinn [Rapunzel]
- Cruel Beauty, Rosamund Hodge [Beauty and the Beast]
- Winter, Marissa Meyer [Snow White]
WHat are your favorite fairytales?
