YA Fairy Tale Retellings- A List
With the live action Beauty and the Beast moving opening soon, I figured it is only fitting to feature a list of YA fairy tale retellings that are getting me just as excited! If I were to pick one genre that is my absolute most favourite of them all, it is a YA fairy tale retelling. There is something exciting to me about reading a timeless tale that has been completely reinvented.
Here is a list of YA fairy tale retellings that have yet to be released, but are already piquing my interest:
Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer
This is one Sleeping Beauty story that sounds as though it is going to be creepy and darker than the original tale. I can’t wait to read it!
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
This Beauty and the Beast retelling is coming out just a few days before the film. So, I suggest that this is one book you try to tide you over if you are a fan of the Beauty and the Beast story.
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
This fantasy is a reimagined Evil Queen from Snow White story that is based on Asian folklore. How amazing does that sound?
Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen
This fantasy is said to be a Beauty and the Beast origin tale. I am not sure that I have read anything that gives insight to how the story might have begun. I am really looking forward to reading it. .
Piper by Jay Asher and Jessica Freeburg
I stumbled across this new graphic novel that reimagines the story of the Pied Piper when looking up information about Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why. The fact that it is a love story that has a main character who has a disability is really intriguing to me. We are still waiting on a cover for this one as well.
