Greetings fellow bloggers. Today I am here to talk about the endless amount of fairytale retellings that we have.
I know from experience that it is pretty hard to write a fairytale retelling, I tried my hand at that, and it didn’t turn out well. Because you have to follow the main idea of the fairytale, and twist it and make it more interesting.
And I can’t help but marvel at the authors that actually manage to write them. Sure, some of them are rather horrible, but half the time they’re amazing. My all time favorites would be these:
CINDER by Marissa Meyer
With a Cinderella cyborg and a beautiful race of evil moon people, this book was amazing from the start.
ENCHANTED by Alethea Kontis
There aren’t many books where you see atleast a hundred different fairytales put together, but somehow Alethea Kontis managed to do so.
THE SWEETEST SPELL by Suzanne Selfors
In a world where chocolate is scarce, our heroine has the artistic ability to turn anything to chocolate with her touch.
And those are my top three. They’re all pretty amazing.
What are your favorite fairytale retellings?
