Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I've Read
1. Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis. A space-age retelling of Snow White. The "dwarves" are drones!
2. The Madman's Daughter trilogy by Megan Shepherd. They heavily reference The Island of Dr. Moreau, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and Frankenstein.
3. Shades of London series by Maureen Johnson. Incorporates the Jack the Ripper tales.
4. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. A continuation of The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.
5. Charming and Daring by Elliott James. The main character is Prince Charming.
6. All the books by Gregory Maguire. (At least, all the ones I've read.) Most notably, the Wicked Years series, which is a retelling of The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.
7. Peter and the Starcatchers series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Continuation of Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie.
8. Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson. A retelling of the Bluebeard fairytales.
9. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. A darker (if you can believe it) take on Beauty and the Beast.
10. King Raven trilogy by Stephen Lawhead. Retelling of Robin Hood.
And what about you? What have been your favorite retellings? (And can you believe I still haven't read a single Lunar Chronicle?)
