    I still need to read pretty much all of the retellings on your list! I have heard so much about The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly, but I had no idea that it was a retelling. Do you know which fairytale it is a retelling of? I love that you incorporated the Disney movies! I love pretty much anything Disney makes, especially the princess movies! Frozen, Tangled, and Cinderella are my favorites.

  2. Great choices!! I love that you included some Disney fairytales! My favorites are Sleeping Beauty and Tangled. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids- I may have to add this one to my TBR! I really, really want to read The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly too! It sounds so interesting. I hope you get to The Wrath and the Dawn and Cinder soon! They are both amazing! Great post!!

    It was tough to come up with ten books! I had read four, so that helped. If it was movies and TV, I could have EASILY done this list. I love how you split it between books and Disney movies. Mine would be the same as yours except swap out Cinderella for Sleeping Beauty. 🙂 Fun list!

  4. I’ve seen the summer of chasing mermaids around but didn’t know it was a fairy tale retelling I must check it out. I’ve seen Wrath and Dawn but haven’t even read the blurb.

    Great List. My favorite disney movie is a tie between the lion king and Aladdin.

  5. I have read Minnow Bly, Wrath, and Cinder from your list. I liked Cinder, but LOOOOVED Wrath and really really liked Minnow Bly. So, they were all wins, basically. I really want to read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids too! OH and definitely Damsel Distressed! Is it bad that I have NO idea what Frozen is a retelling of? I feel kind of dumb not knowing this hahha. Great list!
