I’m fabulous at procrastinating, so my list of retellings to read is much much longer than the list of those that I’ve already read! I enjoy retellings an awful lot, but I completed a Top Ten Tuesday on this same topic back in August, so I’ve been having trouble picking different titles to include here! I finally narrowed it down to some, though…
5) ‘Cleo’ by Lucy Coats
4) ‘Downcast’ by Cait Reynolds
3) ‘The Sleeper and the Spindle’ by Neil Gaiman
2) ‘The Bloody Chamber’ by Angela Carter
Angela Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’ actually features a few fairytale retellings, as it’s a collection of short stories. It’s adult fiction rather than young adult, but I highly recommend it – it’s brilliantly written and very short, so it’s an easy and fast read.
1) The Splintered series by A. G. Howard
I hope you enjoyed my Top Five Wednesday! What are your favourite retellings?
