We all know those classic fairytales, but sometimes a retelling can blow the classic out of the water. This curious wannabe fae wants to know what are some fairytale retellings that you have enjoyed!
This week’s prompt is: Retellings
I really enjoy retellings. I have read all different kinds but there are a few that stood out to me and I still think about. I probably will end up rereading these at some point in the future too.
This is one of my favorites. Its one of the few steampunk books I have read but I loved it. It has vampires, shifters, a kickass heroine, and some very cool steampunky things.
Also all of the covers are absolutely beautiful!
Another Karsak book! She is such a great writer. This is a retelling of The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Also another beautiful cover. All of Karsak’s steampunk books have amazing covers.
I have only read books 1 and 2 of this series but they were so good! This is clearly a Beauty and the Beast retelling but the woman is considered the ugly one.
I really loved the whole premise of this fantasy and really should go back and reread it.
I have read three books of this series. Books 1 and 2 were amazing. They are fantasy retellings of Beauty and the Beast.
This series had it all: a slow building romance, troubled/cursed hero, spunky and smart heroine, a stolen kingdom, emotional turmoil and of course faeries and magic. This is also on my list to reread.
