Did you read any fairytale retellings this year? Share your favorites!


  1. Wow that is quite a few, the only one I've read is Fable.

    1. So you've read the Unenchanted series? How did you like it?

  2. Nice list! I've read a few of these, and I got to a couple other fairytale retellings this year too. Besides the ones by Marissa Meyer, I think my favorite of 2015 was Winter's Child by Cameron Dokey. It's a retelling of the Snow Queen and Ohmygoodness it is so beautiful <3


    1. I haven't read that one! That sounds amazing though; it's going on my TBR list!
