Top Ten Tuesday! (10)

 
Top Ten Fairy Tale Retellings 
 
 
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!

I LOVE retellings and the following are my favorite, I feel that all of these retellings can be appreciated on their own and that they also shed a new beautiful light on the classical fairy tales that they represent. I have reviewed most of these on the blog already so feel free to click for some more information!

A Tale Dark and Grimm By Adam Gidwitz

Breadcrumbs By Anne Ursu

Fables By Bill Willingham  
Sweetly By Jackson Pearce

Wildwood Dancing By Juliet Marillier

Entwined By Heather Dixon

Wicked By Gregory Maguire

Daughter of the Forest By Juliet Marillier
The Black Swan By Mercedes Lackey
 
Snow White and Rose Red By Patricia C. Wrede

  1. I love retellings to! (Although I can get frustrated by them pretty easily.) You have a GREAT list though 🙂 Snow White and Rose Red is one I NEED to read, going to hunt for it soon!Check out my Top Ten / Teaser Tuesday!

  2. I haven't read any of these books! This needs to be changed ASAP because retellings are always amazing in my eyes. Since A Tale Dark and Grimm is number one on this list I might just have to start there!Thanks for checking out my list!Kristan @ Lost Amongst the Shelves

  3. Yay! I'm sad I didn't think of this as a topic, because of COURSE I think I love retellings as much as you do. =) I need to read pretty much everything you listed that I haven't already. I'm sad to say I've only read Wicked, Breadcrumbs, and Fables!

  4. Entwined was a little slow for me as well and while I was reading it I couldn't tell if I hated it or loved it. So weird! I liked the premise though!

  5. I LOVE Patricia C. Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles! I read them when I was much younger and I am pretty sure it is what got me so obsessed with fantasy/strong females/dragons!
