Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's Top Ten theme is top ten fairy tale retellings I've read or want to read.

Retellings I've read
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)Cruel Beauty
Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Mechanica
So while I don't think Stolen Songbird was meant as one, while I was reading it I couldn't help but notice all the parallels between it and Beauty and the Beast.  So I'm putting it in here.

Retellings I want to read
Crimson BoundThe Summer of Chasing Mermaids
Splintered (Splintered, #1)Ash & Bramble

What's your Top Ten?

  2. I've noticed The Summer of Chasing Mermaids popping up a lot lately - I'll have to look into it!

    Check out my TTT.

  3. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids has been getting a lot of buzz recently especially with this week's and last week's topics. I'm so sad I haven't read it yet! It looks very good though and as soon as I come back from holiday I must order it! You've got a great list here darling <3

  4. OOoh nice! I still need to read Crimson Bound as well and I am sooo looking forward to Ash and Bramble! Love the Lunar Chronicles! Splintered was intriguing and unique! I adored ACOTAR and Cruel Beauty and Stolen Songbird was awesome as well! It does have a little B&B theme to it now that you mention it! Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. I absolutely adored Cruel Beauty! It's one of the best retellings I've ever read, of course, right along with The Lunar Chronicles. I think the characters are my favorite things in both - not that the stories are not completely captivating and unique. I really want to read Stolen Songbird and Mechanica. Stolen Songbird's cover does remind me of Beauty and the Beast because of the rose. I wasn't a fan of Crimson Bound but maybe because I had HUGE expectations for it. I really can't wait to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids! I heard nothing but superb things about it so I'm very-very excited!
    Lovely list! :)
