Top Ten Retellings
I love retellings! It’s something that I will say again and again, but I love retellings. I like to read different interpretations of fairy tales, folklore, and stories we love and know from our childhoods. Today, I’m going to share ten of my favorite ones with you!
The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Ella, The Slayer by A.W. Exley
Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey
The Woodcutter by Kate Danley
An Assembly Such as This by Pamela Aiden
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I was surprised but some of these books. I was not expecting to like Pride and Prejudice retelling, but it got me in that it’s a series (yay!) and it’s told from Darcy’s point of view. I also found that Dorothy Must Die was an interesting retelling, it’s definitely an OZ retelling that I enjoyed. Now, what sorts of retellings do you guys enjoy? What are some that seem to come out of left field but were still so good? Comment below and let me know!
