Ten Eight Retellings I've Read
I love a retelling, not just fairytales, I love a retelling of classic literature as well. However for some strange reason I haven't read a lot of them. I've read a lot that I didn't love, so I didn't want to include them on my list. I also have about 50 waiting on my TBR pile, I just haven't gotten to them yet. Even so, here are my favorites.
So far my favorite book of this year. This is a fabulous retelling of A Thousand and One Nights. There are definitely differences, but it was really well done.
I was very surprised at how much I adored this retelling of Pride & Prejudice. Enough that I pretty much own all of the authors other books. It was just cute and well done.
I really enjoyed this retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses. It wasn't groundbreaking, but it was sweet and well done.
A very lose retelling of Snow White, but I found it to be very interesting and different.
I adore this retelling of Cinderella and really all of the other books in this series, be it Little Red Riding Hood (Scarlett) or Rapunzel (Cress), I can't wait to read the final book in the series.
A retelling of the Persephone myth, I really adored this series. I just found the books very readable and memorable. I was never a huge mythology fan, but then I didn't have books like this to read.
Confession, I've never read Persuasion which is what this book is based on, so I can't really compare. I just really enjoyed this story, and always loved the cover.
Romeo and Juliette from a totally different perspective. I enjoyed this book, and I thought it was a really interesting concept.
