Favorite Retellings | Top 5 Wednesday
Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is retellings and I’m so excited because I love retellings. Plus, some of my absolute favorite books are retellings.
I haven’t read many retellings of Alice in Wonderland but Splintered is my favorite. It’s so mystical and imaginative.
I read this book so long ago (like 2011, I think) and I was so blown away by it. I still think about it and it has definitely made a lasting impression on me.
Mechanica is such an interesting retelling of Cinderella. It’s fairly close to the original story but it’s also very different. The writing is beautiful and I loved the concept.
2.Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
This is my favorite retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I was so emotionally invested in the story and I loved so much about this book.
The Lunar Chronicles is such an amazing series. I love how each book focuses on a new character and a new retelling. It’s so well written and the characters are amazing.

I Love your List! Splintered was a pleasantly surprising series! I have the Cinder books, but I haven’t gotten to them yet. I must do that ASAP!
What a wonderful post <3

I loved the Lunar Chronicles as well. I’ve yet to read Winter though :) I’ve not actually read any of the other ones though.
What I did read was The Wrath and the Dawn, not quite like the original (1001 Nights), but a very interesting spin on it.

I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Lunar Chronicles, and I’ve wanted to read them! I have heard of a lot of your picks and enjoy retellings, Splintered sounds especially interesting
