top 10 tues watercolor Ten Fairytale Retellings (2 Loved + 8 To-Read)

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

So, first of all – this is my 50th TTT! I can’t believe it. 50 straight weeks of Top Ten Tuesday. Damn. And second, YAY! I love this one! I have a lot of retellings on my TBR and even joined a challenge for them this year. I have plans for quite a few more – especially with the Lunar Chronicles readalong starting this month.retelling loved

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Still can barely talk about this one
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay | Took a while to get going, but fantastic after it did!

  1. Yayyyy 50 TTT!!! Congrats! Hahaha I was going to say OH I love Entwined and then I saw your comment 😉 I really want to read Princess of Thorns, A Wicked Thing, Ash & Bramble, and Tiger Lily too. Loved Cruel Beauty, ACOTAR, and Cinder. I remember Peter and the Starcatchers being a lot of fun! I read it awhile ago and am not sure why I haven’t read the sequels. And I really hope The Forbidden Wish is good! I haven’t found a good Aladdin (or Little Mermaid) retelling yet.

    • Yeah, agreed about Aladdin/ The Little Mermaid! I saw the reviews for A Twisted Tale so I don’t think I’ll bother with that Aladdin one. Did you read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids? Lots of people loved it but it was so-so for me. Lots of cool connections to The Little Mermaid though. I liked that part. I’d definitely recommend Princess of Thorns! Honestly the first 100 pages were kind of slow for me – I was really intrigued and wanted to keep reading, and I’m SO GLAD I did. It ended up being a favorite.
