Top Ten Tuesday: Fairytale Retellings I Want To Read

August 4: Ten Fairytale Retellings I've Read/Want To Read

1. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige -I've had this book on my TBR for too long now, and I still haven't read it yet. I'm SO SUPER CURIOUS though!! I love that it's a retelling of The Wizard of Oz, but with an evil twist.

2. The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige - Same as above!! I Must read these books soon!

3. Spelled by Betsy Schow - This is another Wizard of Oz retelling that I'm so super curious about. I love the cover, it's just stunning!

4. Wicked by Gregory McGuire -And one more Oz book that I've had on my TBR for a while. I've always been curious for the Wicked Witch's story.

5. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer -I read Cinder, the first book in this series, and absolutely loved it. Scarlet is the second book in the series, and it's also Little Red Riding Hood's story!

6. Cress by Marissa Meyer -Book 3 in the same series as above is Cress, which is Rapunzel's story!! I love that every book in this series is about a different fairytale character!! I must read these soon.

7. Splintered by A.G. Howard -Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite movies growing up, and I've been wanting to read Splintered for a while now! I hope it's awesome!

8. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce -Another Little Red retelling that I can't wait to cross off my TBR!!

9. Towering by Alex Flinn - I really enjoyed Flinn's Beastly, and I have a couple of her other retellings on my TBR as well, but I'm most excited about Towering! This is another Rapunzel retelling, and I really want to try to read it soon. The cover is stunning!

10. Entwined by Heather Dixson - I've had Entwined on my TBR every since I discovered YA books years ago, and I still haven't had a chance to read it! One of these days, I will finally have a chance to read this 12 Dancing Princesses retelling!!


  1. Sure enough I find myself intrigued with Entwined! I didn't know it was a 12 Dancing Princesses retelling and I loved that story! And B&N just sent me a coupon for last weekend! Bad timing! lOL! Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

  2. I have Dorothy Must Die on my list too, but I'm still not sure whether or not I truly want to read it. I really love the musical Wicked though. Awesome list!


  3. I just bought the Lunar Chronicles so I can finally read them. I didn't realize there is was so many Wizard of Oz retellings! I need to add them to my TBR.

    Great Picks!

  4. Great list. I haven't read any of these but the Lunar Chronicles and Splintered are in already in my to-read list wondering why they hell I haven't read them yet. Ha. Sisters Red looks so intriguing tho, I definitely need to add that to my TBR pile.
