Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This week's topic is: Ten Books To Read If You Like Cinder!
*in no particular order
**So for this I am basically picking other beloved fairy tales retold! Some in totally unique ways like Cinder, and others that might be more retelling yet in the classical sense! Though none of these will have the Sci-Fi feel!
1. SNOW by Tracy Lynn--a classical retelling of Snow White, yet still with some different twists!
2. SCARLET MOON by Debbie Viguie--a Little Red Riding Hood retelling with a nice werewolf twist! This was among the first ones like that that I ever read!
3. THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Ahdieh--a nice classic retelling of A Thousand and One Nights!
4. GRIM edited by Christine Johnson--a beautiful collection of fairy tales retold! The way they should be...dark and grim! ;)
5. A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas--an amazing retelling of Beauty and the Beast but add in the fae!
6. NOCTURNE by Syrie James--another retelling of Beauty and the Beast, at least that's how I saw it! Though the Beast is definitely a different variety...and that's all I say before I get to talking too much!
7. PRINCESS OF THORNS by Stacey Jay--this one's not so much of a retelling, but you could call it a "sequel" of sorts. As this one tells the tale of Sleeping Beauty's daughter and her misadventures that involve curses and princes and evil fairies!
8. ENCHANTED by Alethea Kontis--a uniquely retold tale of the Frog Prince! Alethea plans on writing a full series with all 7 sisters getting a chance in the spotlight! We're up to 3 so far! And I'm behind by 1!
9. STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD by Jane Nickerson--a retelling of the Bluebeard fairy tale. If it's even called one. But we all know how bizarre that story was! This was sort of a "newer" version of the tale as the time period isn't as old as the original, but it's still set in the past!
10. BRIAR ROSE by Jana Oliver--a wonderfully retold version of Sleeping Beauty! It was done in ways I couldn't even imagine! I adored this one!
