Fairytale Retelling Recommendations!

Here are some fairytale retellings I adore, inspired by familiar characters we all grew up with!

For Snow White Fans: The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine
The Shadow Queen is not your typical Snow White retelling. This dark and twisted fantasy novel follows a fugitive princess trying to take back her crown, and a prince who will do anything to save his kingdom, even if it means making a deal with an evil queen.
For Cinderella Fans: Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Geekerella is an adorable Cinderella retelling, centered around fandom and geek culture. It’s a fresh take on a classic fairytale that will remain in your heart long after you put it down.
For Aladdin Fans: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
This Aladdin-inspired tale tells the story of Zahra, a jinni whose lamp is picked up by the not-very-princely Aladdin. When given the opportunity to be free of her lamp, she must decide if freedom is worth everything it will cost.

The Wrath & The Dawn is a breathtaking book based on 1001 Arabian Nights. Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan marries a new bride each night only to have her killed in the morning. When Shahrzad volunteers to be his next bride, she has a plan to end his reign once and for all.

A dark twist on the classic tale, Lyra is the siren princess, known for killing only princes, and Elian is a prince known for hunting sirens. When Lyra is punished and made human, she must deliver the Elian’s heart to the sea queen or be banished forever.
