Cover Love!! (Fairytale Retelling)

Here's some lovely fairytale retellings that I'm excited to read!! I think most of them are more or less new releases.

The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson
~Have you read any of Melanie's retellings? They're delightful!!~

Five Glass Slippers by Elisabeth Brown, Emma Clifton, Rachel Heffington, Stephanie Ricker, and Clara Diane Thompson
~Can't wait to read this collection of Cinderella tales!!~

Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck
~After reading Once Upon a Prince, I am excited to read this new Cinderella retelling!~

Rapunzel Let Down by Regina Doman
~The last book so far to the "Shadow of the Bear series", I hear it is unique and thought-provoking~

What is Hidden by Lauren Skidmore
~Such a fun cover; love the mask! *smiles*~

So there's a few! Always looking for more tasteful, clean, and fun fairytale retellings... if you know of any! :) 


  1. I LOVE fairytale retellings! :D They're probably my favorite category of books... And yes, I can't wait to read The Princess Spy!! Melanie Dickerson is delightful. ^_^

    Have you read Gail Carson Levine's Ella Enchanted, Fairest, and her princess stories (especially Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep)? I don't see them on your Goodreads but that doesn't mean you haven't read them. ;) I enjoy her a lot. Other than that, you seem to have read most of the fairytale retellings I've read, and a lot to spare. :D

    Do you have a favorite fairytale? :)

  2. Oh, these look so good!! I love that cover on The Princess Spy! ... ok, I love ALL the covers :) Gonna add these on Goodreads for sure!

  3. Deborah, yes Melanie Dickerson is wonderful! I've especially enjoyed her Snow White retelling and Cinderella retelling! :) I haven't read by Gail Carson Levine, but I'll definitely have to check some of her books out, now that you mention it! :) Hmmm... I've always been intrigued by Ariel, being she's a mermaid and all, :) ... Oh, and Rapunzel... but Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are also enchanting... Yeah, I guess I don't really have a favorite! I like them all! :D

    Ashlee, aren't they just lovely?? I'm so excited to read them all! :)

    1. Haha, liking them all is acceptable. XD My favorite is the Twelve Dancing Princesses, though it's a rarer retelling...

      Such beauuuutiful covers! ^_^ Fairytale retellings do have a knack for being gorgeous! :D

    2. Ooh, yes! I like the Twelve Dancing Princesses too! Haha! Entwined! :)

      I agree! They're also a bit whimsical, :) And so fun!! I just started writing my Beauty and the Beast retelling for the writing contest today, and I'm already loving the process!! :) :)

    3. Oh neat!!! Good luck on that! ^_^
