Once upon a time, there was a lovely blogging community tucked away in a surprisingly large village called The Internet. One day, a particularly fabulous blog called The Broke and the Bookish came trotting into the village on horseback, announcing that a new meme was being created called Top Ten Tuesday. The other bloggers reveled in this announcement, and pretty soon Top Ten Tuesday became so adored and loved that not even the wicked Internet Trolls could destroy it. And that, my friends, is how we got to where we are today!
….. Er, or something like that! Welcome to this week’s edition of Top Ten Tuesday, which is my Top Ten Fairy Tale Retellings! I haven’t actually read enough of them to make a full list, so I’ve listed five that I have read and five that I want to read. In no particular order, they are:
Entwined by Heather Dixon ~ Retelling of Twelve Dancing Princesses
Beastly by Alex Flinn ~ Retelling of Beauty and the Beast
A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn ~ Retelling of Sleeping Beauty
A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce ~ Retelling of Rumpelstiltskin
Far Far Away by Tom McNeal ~ Contains elements of tales by the Brothers Grimm
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge ~ Retelling of Little Red Riding Hood
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh ~ Retelling of Arabian Nights
Cinder by Marissa Meyer ~ Retelling of Cinderella
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly ~ Retelling of Little Red Riding Hood
September Girls by Bennett Madison ~ Retelling of the Little Mermaid
Making this list has made me realize how few retellings I’ve actually read!! I need to get on that, ASAP!
What are your favorite fairy tale retellings? What do you think of the ones on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!
