TOPIC OF THE WEEK:  Just Can’t Get Enough… What are some of your favorite retellings of classics?

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas – Beauty and the Beast retelling
  • Heartstone by Elle Katharine White – Pride and Prejudice retelling
  • Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen – Peter Pan retelling
  • Helen of Troy by Margaret George – Trojan War retelling
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – Trojan War retelling
  • The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore – Romeo and Juliet retelling
  • Juliet by Anne Fortier – Romeo and Juliet retelling

These are just a few of my favorites that I’ve read the past few years. I’m sure that I’ve forgotten plenty and still have so many sitting on my shelves waiting to be read. Looks like I might need to do a retelling exclusive TBR one month, huh? That might be fun to do this fall!

What are some of your favorite retellings? Have you grown tired of all of the retellings published lately? Have you read any of my favorites?
