Top Ten Tuesday (36)- My Ten Favorite Fairy Tale Retellings (so far)


Hi thanks for stopping by!!! And welcome to my Top 10 Tuesday post! 

Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Broke And The Bookish for creating this weekly meme!

Here's this week's topic.

August 4: Ten Fairytale Retellings I've Read/Want To Read (or you could do fairytales I want to be retold or fairytales I love)




This one super easy for me fairy tale retellings is one of my favorite genres! Its going to be hard to keep it to just 10 LOL


1. The Beau Rivage Series by Sarah Cross. She takes them all and puts them in one place! Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Beauty and The Beast, Bluebeard, 12 Dancing Princesses, The Little Mermaid, and more! The publisher who published the first 2, EgmontUSA closed but I'm really hoping the rest of the series gets picked up by someone else.
2. The Tales of Beauty and Madness series by Lili St. Crow. Each book features a different retelling the first is Snow White, book 2 is Cinderella, and book 3 is Little Red Riding Hood all set in a supernatural world with magic, vampires, and supernatural mafia. Love this series!
3. The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. There's a few in here but it's mostly A Thousand and One Nights and Bluebeard.
4. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I don't think these need explaining by now we've all fallen in love with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, and we're impatiently waiting for Winter!
5. Stitching Snow. A sci-fi version of Snow White complete with space travel and robots! I love this one!
6. Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell. It's a steampunk Cinderella retelling and the herione is badass!
7. A Court of Thorns And Roses. By Sarah J. Maas. Another Beauty and the Beast-ish retelling. 
8. Winterspell by Claire Legrand. It's a Nutcracker retelling and I am obsessed with this book! It's dark and sexy and magical!
9. Crown of Ice by Vicki L. Weavil. A beautiful Snow Queen retelling!
10. The Artisans by Julie Reece. Beauty and The Beast done Southern Gothic style.






So this is my list. What about you? What were the last books you received or bought?

And come back next week for my Top Ten Authors I've Read The Most Books From!
