Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten fairy tales I’ve read/on TBR.
10. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids – Sarah Ockler. A great contemporary retelling of The Little Mermaid. It was cute and fun to see how the characters were incorporated into such a different world.
9. The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer. I’ve only read the first two so far but they’re such unique twists on the fairy tales.
8. The Iron Fey Series – Julie Kagawa. Maybe not fairy tale retelling but it has characters from a Shakespeare play and it involves the fae.
7. Crimson Bound – Rosamund Hodge. This was a very interesting retelling and grabbed me right from the start.
6. The Silent Swan – Lex Keating. Another contemporary retelling, this time of The Six Swans. I fell in love with characters and their families. I laughed, I cried, and I really wanted to play baseball with them.
5. Ash and Bramble – Sarah Prineas. I love when the heroines to save themselves.
4. The Shadow Queen – CJ Redwine. I’ve been excited about this one for a while. It looks fantastic.
3. The Great Hunt – Wendy Higgins. This seems like a huge win for me. I love Wendy Higgins. I love retellings. I love when the retelling is of a lesser known fairy tale. A retelling of The Singing Bone seems perfect.
2. Mechanica – Betsy Cornwell. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while. The cover caught my eye but the synopsis was what really sold me. It comes out this month.
1. The Forbidden Wish – Jessica Khoury. An Aladdin retelling. The cover is so pretty and I can’t wait to see what twists await.
