#FaeFriday | 8.21.2020

We all know those classic fairytales, but sometimes a retelling can blow the classic out of the water. This curious wannabe fae wants to know:

What are some fairytale retellings that you have enjoyed?

Fairytale retellings are some of my favorite stories! So I couldn’t resist putting this as a prompt! Secretly, I’m hoping that I’ll find some excellent new books to add to my TBR through this prompt! So, without further ado, here are my picks!

Pan by Gina L. Maxwell – I LOVE Gina’s books, and Pan is a fantastic retelling of Peter Pan! This book has all of our favorite characters but in a new contemporary setting. I know you’re all probably sick of me gushing about this book, but if this is the first time you’ve heard about it, definitely take a look at my review!

Desperate Measures by Katee Robert – Oh, Desperate Measures… this book is everything that I needed in a retelling. We have a completely new twist and some incredibly sexy scenes between Jafar & Jasmine. In this retelling, Aladdin isn’t who we think he is, and Jafar is a swoon-worthy villain. Trust me, this book is so hot it might melt your kindle. Take a look at my review to see just why I keep recommending this book.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden – I admit, I don’t know much about Russian folklore, but The Bear and the Nightingale is hands down one of my favorite fantasies. Psst. I highly recommend the audiobook because the narrator is AMAZING. Want to see why I love this book so much? Take a look at my review!

So now that you know my answer, what are some fairytale retellings that you have enjoyed?
