Top Ten Tuesday!

Hey everyone!  Today’s Topic over at The Broke and the Bookish, and here as well, is Favorite Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read!  Click below to see my list!


1.  Cinder (1st in the Lunar Series) by Marissa Meyer:  Retelling of Cinderella

2.  The Looking Glass Wars (1st in the Looking Glass Wars Series) by Frank Beddor:  Retelling of Alice in Wonderland

3.  The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler:  Retelling of The Little Mermaid

4.  Sisters Red (1st in the Retold Fairytales Series) by Jackson Pearce:  Retelling of Little Red Riding Hood

5.  Red Pyramid (1st in the Kane Chronicles) by Rick Riordan:  Retelling of Egyptian Mythology (ok, so technically Egyptian Mythology isn’t a fairytale but this is an awesome series with modern versions of old tales, so I think it counts!)

What awesome Fairytale Retellings am I missing?  Let me know in the comments!



  1. I have Cinder in my TBR pile because I’ve heard good things about it. You might want to check out Beauty by Robin McKinley, Ella Enchanted by Gail Carsone Levine and The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale.

  2. You know I love Cinder. I’m looking forward to Winter which comes out in a few months. The author has a new series coming out next year that starts with a book about the red queen, I’m assuming from Alice in Wonderland, called Heartless.

    I want to read The Looking Glass Wars but I’ve never gotten around to it. It’s been on my list to read for about four or five years now. Maybe I’ll get to it eventually.
