10 Fairy Tale Retellings I Want to Read

14 comments

I made a list of Top 10 Books for Readers Who Like Fairy Tale Retellings (which I recommend checking out) back in March, and there haven't been many changes to that list since. (Except for Uprooted, which was very good.) I could easily find "10 Retellings That Didn't Work for Me but Might for You," but that's a little negative...and depressing. ;) So instead, I give you 10 fairy tale retellings I haven't tried yet, but want to read!







  



That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I (finally) did some summery stuff. :)

  1. I love fairy tale retelling, and this list made me discover some interesting books. I am definitely going to check out Free Agents and Tuesday at the Castle.

    1. I hope you enjoy them, Nash! I've heard nothing but good things about Tuesdays at the Castle, and I like the premise of Free Agent. :)

  2. Daughter of the Forest is beyond excellent. :) And because of this I have Heart's Blood on my shelf, but haven't read it yet.

    1. I really liked Marillier's Wildwood Dancing, and I have three more of her books on the TBR including Dreamer's Pool. Can't wait to try Daughter of the Forest!

  3. I haven't read any of these, except for Winter (love that whole series!). I recently just read Letters to Zell which is about a few princesses (Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Rapunzel) and I really enjoyed it. It's got swearing in it though, which might turn some people off.

    1. I don't think I'd heard of Letters to Zell before. Shame they didn't keep to the Disney language code, but I'll have to keep an eye out for it. ;) Thanks for the rec, Kristen!

    1. Thanks, Adriana! I keep finding more fairy tale retellings, old and new, so it's great to see they're still popular. :)

  5. The only one of these I've read is Free Agent. And then I binged all 3 in the series. Because I requested the ARC of #3 thinking it would take a while to get approved so I'd have plenty of time to read books 1 & 2, right? 30min later I'd been approved. *laughs*

    Book #2 is my favorite of the three, but Free Agent is pretty good. Winter is on my list, but I have to get the previous books read first. And now there are a number more books added to my pile. A White So Red & Rapunzel's Revenge I hadn't heard of before, but they sound good!

    1. I'm glad to hear you liked Free Agent and its sequels! It's definitely on my list to track down once the book buying ban is over. Yep, you have a bit of catch-up to do on the Lunar Chronicles. :)

  6. I've heard such good things about Daughter of the Forest! I'm thinking of picking that one up in December or January! Also, I should more of the Lunar Chronicles. Cinder wasn't AMAZING, but it was good! And I love reading a series that is already finished :)

    1. I've still only read one of Marillier's books, but several have made it onto the TBR list. Now to find time to read them... And yeah, I think it's worth reading the rest of the Lunar Chronicles. They aren't necessarily AMAZING, but they're good entertainment. And the series is (finally) almost done!

  7. I cannot wait for Winter to come out, the anticipation is killing me! Daughter of the Forest looks really interesting, definitely going to check that out! :D Great list!

    1. Thanks, Kristin! I will definitely be making time amidst the work and homework for Winter. And maybe a couple of Marillier books, too. ;)
