March 10: Ten Books For Readers Who Like Retellings!

I haven't read too many Retellings yet, but I have really been enjoying reading the ones that I have. And I am really looking forward to reading more. Here are some that I have enjoyed reading!

The Lunar Chronicles 

1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer Retelling of Cinderella. 
2. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer Retelling of  Little Red Riding Hood.
3. Cress by Marissa Meyer Retelling of  Rapunzel.

These three books are AMAZING! Definitely one of my ALL TIME favorite book series. I think they are incredible Retellings and I push these books on everyone. I will never get tired of recommending this book series. I can't wait for WINTER, (book 4) which is coming out later this year!

4. Winterspell by Claire Legrand Retelling of  The Nutcracker.
5. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson Retelling of Peter Pan.
6. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge Retelling of  Beauty and the Beast. 
7. The Trouble With Flirting by Claire LaZebnik Retelling of Mansfield Park.
8. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine Retelling of Cinderella.

9. The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd Retelling of The Island of Dr. Moreau. 
10. Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik Retelling of  Pride and Prejudice.
11. Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis Retelling of  Snow White.

Here Are Some Retellings That I Own That Are On My TBR:

1. Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth
2. Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama
3. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
4. Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd
5. Splintered by A.G. Howard

And there are SEVERAL Retellings that are coming out this year that I am looking forward to as well!

Have you read these Retellings too? Tell me some of your favorite Retellings so I make sure I have them on my list to read! 


  1. I thought of doing retellings but could only think of mythology ones. I love retellings, especially Ella Enchanted I think that's the one that started me off.
    I have a few of these waiting to be read, and I've heard a lot about The Lunar Chronicles but haven't gotten to them.

  2. I just finished Tiger Lily last week, i loved it :] I have The Lunar Chronicles on my TBR, i need to get to it soon!!!

    My TTT :)

  3. I LOVE The Lunar Chronicles, the Splintered trilogy, and The Madman's Daughter trilogy! I haven't read a good chunk of those books, but I hope to soon! I hope you enjoy Splintered!
