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.
