I Love Fairy tale retelling. Absolutely love them to the core. So I saw this on TheBrokeandbookish and I just couldn’t resist. Also, I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday post in so long. So, here we go.
The Best fairy tale retellings I have read. I love Beauty and the Beast and I loved Cruel Beauty too. Ignifex is my fictional boyfriend and Nyx is just a strong character.
Crimson Bound is a retellings of Little Red Riding Hood. This is what perfection feels like. You cannot want more from a book. It os a creepy, gory and twisted version of a fairy tale. I loved it.
Another Beauty and the Beast story and this one is by Sarah J Mass, the queen of fantasy books. How could I not love it? Oh! It also has faeries in it. And not the good kind. 😉
Each book is a different fairytale retelling but they are all connected to a same story. The characters of these books are just amazing. And it’s beautifully written. Even the novellas/side stories are really good.
A sleeping beauty retelling. How easy it seems that the sleeping beauty wakes and marries the prince amd they live happily ever after! What if Aurora doesn’t want to marry the prince who is just a stranger to her?
What was the one thing we loved about our dear Dorothy? It was that whatever happened, all she wanted was to go back home. But what happens when she misses Oz too much and finally thinks that Oz is much better than home. Dorothy turns evil so she must be stopped.
All disney villians and their kids trapped on an island. What a bloody good idea!
It is a Cinderella retelling and almost all reviews I have read of this book are not very good but still I want to read this soo bad. Weird, I know.
I want this book. I totally want this. The reviews are awesome, the description is just captivating and the cover is beautiful.
Another book I really want to read!
Ever heard of the twelve dancing princesses? Yeah it’s a retelling of that. I have this book but I just can’t get to it. I see it on my shelf just lying there and don’t have the wish to pick it up. Maybe one day I will.
So, that’s it for today. Tell me what’s your favourite fairytale and fairy tale retellings. Do you like mine?
