Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week it’s a freebie so I chose a previous TTT topic which is Retellings I Want to Read. I’ve broadened this out to include fairy tales, literature, and mythology as sources of inspiration.
A Court of Thorns and Roses
This loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast has been on my TBR for ages! I can’t wait to check it out.
I’m really bad at finishing book series! I enjoyed reading Cinder and need to find a copy of Scarlet which is the second book in The Lunar Chronicles series.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely
I’ve heard great things about this dark and captivating YA fantasy retelling by Brigid Kemmerer.
To Kill a Kingdom
I will definitely be soon reading this retelling of The Little Mermaid because it is on my bookshelf!
Flame in the Mist
Flame in the Mist is a very loose retelling of Mulan which is set in feudal Japan instead of China. I’m a fan of Renee Ahdieh’s work and this sounds like an interesting read.
Another book by Marissa Meyer! Heartless is an imagined prequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
I’m a fan of Greek mythology and look forward to reading this novel. Circe features in The Odyssey and I’m intrigued to see how her character is portrayed here.
Hunted is a Beauty and the Beast retelling blended with Russian folklore which sounds good to me!
A Thousand Nights
A Thousand Nights is a reimagining of One Thousand and One Nights. This was published in the same year as The Wrath and the Dawn, but from what I’ve heard they are very different books.
A Beauty and the Beast retelling which features a dragon? I’m sold!
Have you read any of these retellings? I would love your recommendations! Let me know in the comments and feel free to link your Top Ten Tuesday post!
