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!
