Top 10 Fairytale Retellings Read / Want to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by the lovely Broke and the Bookish.

Fairtytale Retellings I have read and want to read.

So because this is such a great topic this week, I couldn't decide which to choose so I'm doing both! I love retellings so much, especially fairy tale retellings because fairy tales are amazing. :rainbow Seriously. It was actually kind of hard to choose for both, though! ;)

  1. Dorothy Must Die was ok, the sequel and novella's I thought were better :)
    My ttt

    1. Really?! How interesting!! Do you think its a series worth reading tho?!? ;) Thanks for stoppin by Renee

  2. I'm a massive fairytale retellings fan too! I haven't' read many of these before though - just Cinder which I enjoyed, but didn't think was as good as the hyped suggested, and Dorothy Must Die which I found tedious. I have Ash & Bramble to read too, and Blood Passage looks really good!

    1. ooh you gotta read Exquisite Captive..if u like djinn books and middle eastern mythology and culture. it's a must read. lot of polarized views on the book, which make it more intriguing! :O
      Thanks for stpping by Rachel, I will do your tag! :P

  3. I read Dorothy Must Die! I absolutely loved that retelling! I've also read Cinder, but I haven't continued on with the series yet. I've also read Violet Eyes, a retelling of the Princess and the Pea. It's really good! I love fairy tale retellings, and I think I'll check out all the books you've put here! Awesome post!

  4. Great list! I love Cinder so much, and I'm really excited for The Forbidden Wish. I still need to read Exquisite Captive. :)

  5. Lovely list! Dorothy Must Die is wonderful!
