Top Ten Fairytale Re-tellings

10. Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright

Red Riding Hood


The movie was so good, and the book worked so well with it. A great take on Red Riding Hood.

9. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)


Cyborg-Cinderella deserves a spot on this list even though I have yet to read it.

8. The Princesses of Westfalin Trilogy by Jessica Day George

Princess of the Midnight Ball (Princess, #1)


This series is so well connected. It encompasses so many different fairytales, and I love it.

7.Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson

Strands of Bronze and Gold


This is a re-telling of Bluebeard, which I had not known much about before so the ending was a surprise.

6. A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

A Wicked Thing (A Wicked Thing, #1)


This is a different take on Sleeping Beauty and a lot more realistic which I love about it.

5.Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty


Beauty and the beast, one of my favourite tales.

4. Stray by Elissa Sussman

Stray (Four Sisters, #1)


This basically inspired by fairytale structures in general.

3.The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)


This book is unbelievably good, it’s a re-telling of A Thousand and One Nights.

2. Entwined by Heather Dixon



This book is the reason I fell in love with fairytale re-tellings. This one is about the 12 dancing Princesses and it is my fav.

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)


I just love this book, it’s inspired by Beauty and the beast and it is almost like a re-telling so it fits with this list.

What are your top ten’s for this weeks, and what do you think of mine?
