Top Ten Tuesday. This is my first top ten list, so enjoy.
My Top Ten Retellings
One of my favorite kind of books is one that twists a fairy tale into something new. So I am doing this a little different in that I am going to mention the fairy tale then the book.
This first book in the Lunar Chronicles was the reason why I love retellings, especially when they involve science fiction.
Beauty and the Beast
Robin McKinley (note this is just one of the retellings she writes for Beauty and the Beast)
Diana Peterfreund retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion
This is my favorite so far of Arabian Nights, but I still want to read The Wrath and the Dawn, it looks completely awesome
Another awesome combination of Science Fiction and the a classical tale.
So far Splintered is my favorite in this category
Rapunzel- I have read a couple and Cress is on my tbr list, the others are just ok.
This is a retelling of a Grimm fairy tale of the Seven Swans, and one of my favorite books.
Phantom and the Opera, I really liked this book.
That is just a quick list of some of my favorites, I have more to read and others to ponder some more.
