Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Fairytale Retellings I've Read, Want To Read, and Fairytales I've Loved.


* * Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. * * This week's TTT is: Ten Fairytale Retellings I've Read/Want To Read (or you could do fairytales I want to be retold or fairytales I love)*

Fairytale Retellings I've read

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses is one of the best retellings I've ever read. Seriously Sarah J Maas created an epic story and c'mon I love Beauty and the Beast so it was a WIN WIN!
 A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

2. The retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses was cute and Entwined totally made me want to dance all night.
Entwined

 3. This Alice in Wonderland retelling, if it can be called that, was different and dark and oh-so-good. I still haven't read Ensnared because I'm not read to say goodbye to those characters.
Splintered (Splintered, #1)

Fairytales I would love to have retold

4. I loved rewatching and rewatching The Swan Princess as a kid. I think this retelling would be all kinds of amazing, the possibilites are endless. GET TO IT WRITERS!!!!


5. I don't know if it's been retold or not but a retelling of Pinocia would be awesome. Maybe Pinocia could be a girl this time and when she lies the things she says come true. For example she could be an orphan and the kids at school make fun of her so she says she's from this faraway place and then all of a sudden she's in said place and that's all I got but yeah that would be cool retelling, ha.


6. We know all what happens in The Little Mermaid, Ariel got her legs and Ursula wants the prince to tell Ariel he loves her. But WHAT IF instead of falling for the prince, Ariel falls for his brother or cousin or best friend and she doesn't get her voice back so she communicates by writing on paper and what not. GAHHHH someone write me this retelling pleaseeeeee

8. Beauty and the Beast


9. Aladdin


10. Thumbelina

  1. Swan Princess!!! I'm getting all the feels and memories from these gifs! Love these movies!! Loved TLM idea too! Though I'd still want a happier ending than what the original fairy tale was! In a twisted way, I wonder what Hans was thinking when he wrote it that way! Especially after Ariel rescued him from drowning in his little submarine! (as seen in TLM TV series! LOL!)

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I wish they would make a retelling of The Little Mermaid based on the original story where Ariel doesn't turn into sea foam or marries him, but kills him or finds a way out of the curse on her own.

    1. Beauty and the Beast rule the world, ha. But seriously how excited are you for the live action film. I can't wait to see Emma Watson as Belle <3

  6. Great list. I absolutely loved ACOTAR. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite fairytales if I'm being honest. I've never heard of Splintering before today and I love Alice in Wonderland so I -have- to put it on my to-read list.

  7. I think Swan Princess is a movie retelling of the Ballet Swan Lake. There are quite a few similarities. I loved Beauty and the Beast! I loved Anastasia when I was younger, until I found out the true story when I was older. Not a very happy ending.

    I LOVED Splintered, Entwined, and ACOTAR!
