Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read (or fairytales I want to be retold or fairytales I love). So the only fairytale retellings that I have read that I can think of are The Lunar Chronicles (which I love) and Tiger Lily (which I sadly don’t love), and I don’t have a strong interest in any others at the moment. Here are just a few fairy tale retellings that I think could be interesting.
1. Alice in Wonderland, with Parallel Universes
I actually mentioned this idea once before, and I really would love to write this idea myself if I had any idea what to do with other than the basic premise. Maybe one day I’ll have the inspiration…
2. The Princess and the Pea, Modernized
I have zero idea how to make this work, but it’s a common fairy tale that I am not familiar with having a retelling yet.
3. Snow White and Rose Red
I wasn’t even familiar with this fairy tale of two sisters until Annie mentioned it on her blog, and I still don’t really know it, but it sounds intriguing and I think I would be interested in a retelling of it.
Which fairytales would you like to see retold?
