#fairytaleretelling

Current read this is the conclusion of an Alice in Wonderland retelling trilogy. The first is Splintered by AG Howard. The author has done a very good job of taking many elements of the original Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and twisted them to be a little darker. Also lots of references to the actual book by Lewis Carroll and the story explores the differences between the two.

Looking for a beautiful and dark Middle Grade fantasy? Check out @taherehmafi’s Whichwood, book 2 in her Furthermore series. This is a beautifully written story with amazing world building. I suggest it for upper Middle Grade readers because it can be pretty dark at times but it is a wonderful read! (link to full review in profile)

Vous ne savez pas quel roman choisir pour votre box de Noël parmi les 4 titres de notre sélection ? Après RELENTLESS et GRISHA (voir nos posts précédents), voici un nouveau focus sur RONCES BLANCHES ET ROSES ROUGES, roman enchanteur de Laëtitia Arnould.

Première publication des éditions Magic Mirror, maison spécialisée dans les réécritures de contes, Ronces blanches et roses rouges vous embarquera dans un monde aussi dangereux que merveilleux. ⚡️ VOUS Y TROUVEREZ :
✔️ Une ambiance envoûtante grâce à ses paysages à la fois beaux et mystérieux : une forêt enneigée abritant un ours féroce, un château où la nuit ne semble jamais finir... C'est la lecture parfaite pour cet hiver !
✔️ Une réécriture de conte magique ! Car oui, Ronces blanches et roses rouges est une réécriture du conte des frères Grimm Blanche-Neige et Rose-Rouge. Bien loin de l'héroïne de Disney, c'est l'occasion de redécouvrir complètement l'histoire de Blanche-Neige !
✔️ Des méchants tout simplement diaboliques ; vous adorerez les détester ! ⚡️ C'EST LE TITRE QU'IL VOUS FAUT SI VOUS AVEZ AIMÉ :
✔️ Un palais d'épines et de roses, de Sarah J. Maas
✔️ Animale, de Victor Dixen ⚡️ UNE TRÈS BELLE COUVERTURE ET UNE SURPRISE FINALE !
Pour ce premier ouvrage publié chez Magic Mirror Éditions, la maison d'édition a fait appel à la talentueuse Mina M pour dessiner la couverture. Par ailleurs, la maison d'édition a l'habitude de terminer chacun de ses romans par le conte qui a inspiré l'histoire. Une idée des plus ingénieuses qui vous permettra de comparer la réécriture de Laëtitia Arnould et le texte original des frères Grimm.

Cruel Beauty
__________________________________________

I love fairytale retellings so it will come as no surprise that I really enjoyed Cruel Beauty. If you love Beauty and the Beast, this retelling is for you and I definitely recommend it. I will reread this book sometime in the future. I will be having a busy weekend so may not be able to post like I normally would.

What is your favourite fairytale retelling? Let me know so I can add it to my TBR if I haven't read it yet.

Hello lovelies!
📚
I'm so excited about all the fairytale retellings and alternate universe stories coming out! I just finished Girls Made of Snow and Glass this morning and I loved it! Snow White isn't normally my preferred tale, but it was refreshing and gave the stepmother a personality and back story and I was intrigued throughout the book.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Argan has been in my wishlist for what seems like months! A fantasy that incorporates Russian folklore? No need to say anymore! 😍 I kept stalling since my pile of unread booms kept growing and growing. I saw that my local Barnes & Noble only had the paperback in stock so I freaked out and purchased the hardcover at B&N online. I’m sure the hardcover will still be printed for awhile but it was the push I needed to buy it. 😜 Can’t wait to read this!
.
🐻 SYNOPSIS:
“Winter lasts most of the year at the edge of the Russian wilderness, and in the long nights, Vasilisa and her siblings love to gather by the fire to listen to their nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, Vasya loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon. Wise Russians fear him, for he claims unwary souls, and they honor the spirits that protect their homes from evil.
Then Vasya’s widowed father brings home a new wife from Moscow. Fiercely devout, Vasya’s stepmother forbids her family from honoring their household spirits, but Vasya fears what this may bring. And indeed, misfortune begins to stalk the village.
But Vasya’s stepmother only grows harsher, determined to remake the village to her liking and to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or a convent. As the village’s defenses weaken and evil from the forest creeps nearer, Vasilisa must call upon dangerous gifts she has long concealed—to protect her family from a threat sprung to life from her nurse’s most frightening tales.”

I just finished this book and I am in love! I've read A LOT of retold fairy tales, and these are the best! They're written beautifully, the stories are interpreted and altered perfectly. Even the minor details are filled with meaning. I definitely see myself re-reading this periodically. It's for sure earned a place amongst my favorites. #kissingthewitch #emmedonohue #fairytale #fairytaleretelling #shortstories #mypersonallibrary #bookworm #bookstagram #readersofig #booklover #tellmeastory #fairytales #fairytaleretellings #cinderella #snowwhite #sleepingbeauty #thelittlemermaid #thegoosegirl #beautyandthebeast #rapunzel #hanselandgretel #rumplestiltskin

Good morning everyone!! I’m drinking coffee and watching Let’s Make a Deal with my mom. My aunt will be arriving later today. Our thanksgiving celebrations are usually small, but they mean so much to me. ❤️ Also, if you didn’t see my story, please go congratulate all the new @spearcraftbookbox reps, especially my best friend @books_bgames_bgowns ! We have been doing this bookstagram thing together and she always supports me and encourages me. I’m so thankful to have a friend who supports me unconditionally, and she so deserves this rep spot! So everyone go congratulate her and follow her because she’s a literal queen 👑 Love you Jackie!

Day 22 of #readingwhalenov17 - SHORTEST READS
.
I love the Lunar Chronicles! I love it so much that I found myself flying through the series. This needs to be a TV show! Need the crew to be real! *cough* Cress..Thorne *cough* 😉😍
.
🙋 Quick Tip: DO NOT BINGE READ THIS SERIES! (Unless you wanna feel sad afterwards that it's over!) 😢
.
🙋 Another Quick Tip: IF you do decide to binge read The Lunar Chronicles.. Make sure you have the entire series at hand, because if you're missing even one book... oh brace yourself! Just a heads up! .
.
.
Day 22 of #nadineslibrary - SCI-FI
.
The Lunar Chronicles is one of those series that fits multiple genres...and Sci-Fi happens to be one of them. I could get into more sci-fi's reads if they were similar to these ones. .
.
Oooh can't forget the spinoff series Wires and Nerve -- a sci-fi graphic novel. That's pretty awesome! (And another short read too!) .
.
.
Day 22 of #novinbooks17 - FAVOURITE PAIR OF SIBLINGS
.
Cinder is one of my fave books of the series. I loved the fact that Cinder was close with one of her stepsisters, Peony (it kinda reminds me of Ever After).
.
I also think Cinder and Iko have a very sisterly relationship. I definitely see them as family.. at least more so than with Adri and Pearl Linh 😒
.
Annd also...as a OUAT fan who has a soft spot for villains *cough* Hook *cough* ...oh wow this cough isn't going away lol 😜 ... Gotta give a shoutout to these villainous siblings; Regina and Zelena! 🙌🙌

💬 Who are your fave pair of siblings?

Current audio read: Geekerella by Ashley Poston and narrated by Eileen Stevens and Tristan Morris.

I'm loving this book so much. Such a unique and well thought out fairytale retelling that captures the heart of fairytale and merges it seeminglessly with modern society.

I finally finished The Lunar Chronicles by @marissameyerauthor ! I actually listened to the audiobook so I took a pic at Barnes & Noble for my IG 😋 I listened to the whole series and loved every one of them. I plan on rebuying them in book format and reading them just so I can experience them in a different way. So good. #bookreview #bookrecommendation #bookrecommendations #thelunarchronicles #marissameyer #fairytaleretelling #book #books #bookworm #bookdragon #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookcover #books📚

Day 21| #novinbooks17| Fairytale Retellings| These are both retellings of the Queen oh Hearts! I haven’t read Queen of a Hearts, but I have read Heartless and it was so good! It was very heartbreaking, but amazing at the same time!!! I think reading the backstory on who are usually seen as the the villains! I think it’s so interesting!



QOTD: What’s your Favorite retelling (mine is obviously the Lunar Chronicles!)?

What's your favourite Disney princess? Personally I always answer with Snow White because of the dwarfs and animals, however I was always more partial to the animal based Disney movies. My top 3 Disney movies are The Lion King, 101 Dalmatians and Oliver and Company. This film cell frame is actually my sister's because Beauty and the Beast is her favourite (I have a Lion King one 💜)
.
After over 2 weeks of constantly having things that needed to be done I finally got to come home from work today and just read. It was fantastic!!! I even finished Hunted!

Day 21 of #nadineslibrary - DYSTOPIAN .
.
Oh gosh. You know before I join bookstagram I had always thought dystopian and fantasy were one meshed up genre. Sometimes I still think that when I read certain books -- For example, the Lunar Chronicles. I've always thought it to be YA fantasy. But then I hear other people saying it's sci-fi or dystopian. .

Day 21 of #novinbooks17 - A FAIRYTALE RETELLING 🌹
.
Eeeeeeeep! I love fairytale retellings! 😍 Whenever I randomly find one I have to read it. Same goes for movies. I must've seen a handful of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast adaptations (all of which I love!) .
.
I highly recommend you try and find the 2011 Italian version of Cinderella "Cenerentola". The Italian mini series of BatB "La Bella e La Bestia" and the 2014 French movie version "La Belle et la Bête". Those are my faves! 👍😍
.
Annnnd... I couldn't talk about fairytale retellings without mentioning ACOTAR.. am I right?! .
