Top Ten Tuesday #1 ~ Favourite Fairytale Retellings



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted and created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new theme and everyone is invited to join in!

This week's topic is favourite fairytale retellings and favourite retellings that are on our TBR!

This is my first Top Ten Tuesday and its my favourite topic, Fairytales. Now I love fairytales, have read or watched all of them and currently LOVE watching Once Upon A Time. It is an amazing show. But unfortunately, I have only read one book of fairy retelling, though I have a lot of them on my TBR.



1. The one and only book that I have read of retellings is Cinder by Marissa Meyer and I am sure mostly everyone has read it. It's Cinderella's retelling.


Now on the books my TBR list are:


2. I fell in love with this series, since I read Cinder. It's Little Red Riding Hood's retelling.


3. Cress is the third book in The Lunar Chronicles series. Its Rapunzel's retelling. 



4. Most waited book Winter, Snow White's retelling. 



5. Its based on Little Red Riding Hood. Heard a lot of things about it.

Crimson Bound

6. This is another book I want to get my hands on. Its based on Beauty and the Beast.

7.This one is based on Sleeping Beauty.

10. A new series by the same author as of Throne of Glass. A retelling of Beauty and the Beat, has a very pretty cover.

  1. Nice! Seeing lots of the Lunar Chronicles today! While I do enjoy this series, I think I decided not to pick it, just so I could try showing off other faves! LOL! Still need to read Crimson Bound myself!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Yeah, I don't have many in my TBR so I'm stuck. But I plan to chnage that. I'm liking this genre.
      Thank you for visiting.

  2. Hi. :) I really enjoyed reading A Court of Thorns and Roses and Cruel Beauty -both books made my list. I hope you enjoy them when you've the opportunity to read. If you're really liking this genre, perhaps you should check Juliet Marillier - in my opinion, she writes the most beautiful fairy-tale retellings.

    Happy readings! :)

  3. I only had a couple of the same books as you. I hadn't heard of the books by Rhiannon Thomas, so definitely adding them to my TBR list! I'm so excited to read The Lunar Chronicle books. There's a read along on Twitter with the hashtag #TLCReadAlong. We're reading Cinder this month. Then next month is Scarlet, and so on. One book a month until Winter is released!
