Top 10 Books for Readers Who Like Fairy Tale Retellings
Kel Tuesday, March 10, 2015 top10
I highly recommend Robin McKinley's two best retellings (and many of her other books while you're at it). Wildwood Dancing and The Princess Curse are both twists on the 12 Dancing Princesses, the first being more polished and complete, but The Princess Curse pulls in some Greek mythology, too. If you haven't read Ella Enchanted, go do so NOW. Same goes for the Lunar Chronicles.
Princess of Glass is actually the second book of Jessica Day George's trilogy, but it had the best protagonist. Ice has a few issues, but the writing is beautiful, the cover is beautiful, and it's still one of the better East of the Sun, West of the Moon retellings. Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy is middle grade and has a real sense of magic to it. And The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom is all about fun. :)
That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I made a hat, read books and tried to be productive. :)
