Three Fairytale Retellings Worth the Read

I know I had a book list last week, but I wanted to post another one with my favorite fairytale retellings.  I love fairytale retellings and that is the subgenre I most enjoy writing, so I thought it fitting to post a few of my favorites.  For right now, I am just posting a short list, but I will post a longer list later with all of my favorites.

1. Sisters Red  by Jackson Pearce. Loosely based on Red Riding Hood,  this the story of two sisters who fights the werewolves that kill young girls.  Full of action, suspense and romance, the sisters’ bond is tested as they each come to grips with who they are meant to be.

2. Beastly by Alex Flinn.  This is a modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast.  A sweet book full of heart, it was made into a movie a few years ago.  While the movie is cute, the book is definitely better!

3. Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George. A retelling of the Twleve Dancing Princesses, this story takes you to another time and place.  A magical story with humor and romance, it is a read you won’t forget.

There are so many good fairytale retellings, so be looking for my longer list within the next couple of weeks.
