Top Ten Tuesday #79 - Books To Read For My Fairy Tale Challenge!


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fabulous gals cover at The Broke & The Bookish. This week's topic is -

A FREEBIE!!!

Therefore I have decided to do -

Retellings To Read For My Fairy Tale Challenge

And I expect everyone is now either rolling their eyes and/or thinking 'how predictable'!!! Well, I'm treating this week's TTT as an organizational post. In view of the fact we are almost through the first month of the year yet I still haven't read any fairy tale retellings yet this year and my goal for this challenge is 21 to 25 books (second highest level, I'd really like to go for the highest...) I'm getting into gear and also hoping that you may have suggestions for me that aren't on my list - especially adult retellings. I seem to have dozens of YA suggestions but not many adult that I haven't already read. I'm also hoping that a re-read of a couple of Juliet Marillier's books will boost that number! And of course, they all have to be books I own, or can borrow from the library...

  1. Great list! Sounds like a very interesting reading challenge...I love the cover for Juliet Marillier's Wildwood Dancing, and I do have Marissa Meyer's Cinder sitting on my to-read pile so I hope to get around to that soon xD

    Thanks for dropping by my TTT :)

  3. I'm participating in the Fairytale challenge too, so your list is great :) I loved Of Beast and Beauty and I'm planning to read Princess of Thorns sometime this year. Cruel Beauty is amazing, too. It's such a unique retelling!

    The Lunar Chronicles series is one of my favorites, but Cinder starts out pretty slow. If you get past the first 100 pages or so, it becomes a lot more exciting. Great picks :)

  4. Oh, I love fairy tale retellings! I think my all-time favorite is Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, but I honestly can't think of any that I've read and didn't like. I loved Enchanted, Cinder, and Princess of Thorns, but I haven't read any of the others on your list. I'll have to check them out!
    Good luck with your challenge :)

    1. I put off reading the Lunar Chronicles for so long and then I made the mistake of reading Cinder for a read-a-thon and don't remember much about it. I'll be starting again from scratch as it's one that I'm sure will become one of my favorite books :)

    1. I've read it! All the way back in 2010 and I loved it, think I'm going to re-read it though as it was pre-pre-blogging!
