(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
This week, top ten Tuesday is focused on fairy tale retellings; either the ones we’ve read or the ones we need to read. I’ve had a tough time trimming this down to just ten – so I decided to go with ten fairy tale retellings that I own, rather than just ones that I’m excited about eventually acquiring and reading.
So, in no particular order:
9) ‘Goddess of Spring’ by P. C. Cast
Not exactly a fairy tale retelling, the ‘Goddess of Spring’ novel focuses on retelling the story of Persephone and Hades, so it’s a retelling of mythology. The Goddess… series as a whole focuses on mythological retellings, but this is the only one I own, and one of only three that I’ve read.
10) The Abandon trilogy by Meg Cabot
I only own ‘Abandon’ in a hard copy, because I got the second novel out from the library and I own the third book on my Kindle. ‘Abandon’ also focuses on the story of Hades and Persephone. I don’t know how this trilogy ends, because I haven’t read the third book yet – it’s something else that I really need to get around to, but I must read the first two books first because it’s been at least three years since I first read them.
I hope you enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday! Feel free to post links to your Top Ten Tuesdays underneath, and educate me on the retellings that I need to get my hands on – I can already think of a couple that I must go out and buy…
