#FaeFriday: Fairytale Retellings

#FaeFriday is a weekly book tag created by Kristy at CaffeinatedFae, who is also the creator of the tag image above. 

Here’s the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!

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. 

Steampunk Red Riding Hood series by Melanie Karsak

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!

Goblins and Snowflakes by Melanie Karsak

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.

Radiance (Wrath Kings #1) by Grace Draven

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.

Heart of the Fae (The Otherworld #1) by Emma Hamm

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.

Have you read any of these books? If so what did you think of them?
