Top Ten Tuesday: Retellings

By: Cait Marie

Everyone knows I’m a sucker for retellings. It’s kind of my thing–that’s why I have so many planned to release in the next couple years. So, in honor of The Lost Alliance going to the editor, the final book in my Tangled/Robin Hood trilogy, here’s a list of some of my favorite retellings!

Hidden Warrior duology – M. Lynn

This Mulan retelling blew my mind and deserves all the praise. It’s seriously incredible. They were my favorite books of 2020!

Dragon Rising ARC review

Ravenspire series – C. J. Redwine

Each story can technically be read alone, but they all take place in this amazing world C. J. has created. I’ve read the first book, The Shadow Queen, at least three times now.

Tiger Queen – Annie Sullivan

I’d never heard of the Tiger Queen’s original story, but this book is phenomenal. I still think about it all the time and might need to re-read soon. I was also lucky enough to go to the launch party. It was tied for my favorite book of 2019!

A Court of Thorns and Roses series – Sarah J. Maas

I mean… obviously. Although, I will admit I almost forgot to list it because I don’t normally lump it in with my retellings.

Fantasy and Fairytales series – M. Lynn

This is another series where there are multiple stories that take place in one world. The first three are Rapunzel, the next two are Cinderella, and then there’s Robin Hood, and Sleeping Beauty. I still need to read the last two, but the first five are fantastic!

Golden Curse review

A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer

I still need to read the rest of the series, but this Beauty and the Beast retelling made me so happy. It was so well done, and it was amazing getting some physical disability rep in a fantasy book!

A Touch of Gold duology – Annie Sullivan

I absolutely love these books, and they’re part of what re-sparked my love of pirates. It was my favorite book of 2018!

Once Upon a Con series – Ashley Poston

This one isn’t fantasy, but it’s adorable and I love it. It’s so fun.

The Princess and the Fangirl review

Sea Witch – Sarah Henning

The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite Disney movie, so I was beyond excited for this book. It did not disappoint.

Hagenheim series – Melanie Dickerson

I’ve technically only read the first few of this series, and it was years ago, but I loved them. I really want to restart and read them all. There are so many now!
