Over the weekend, I tried to buddy-read a book.
I enjoyed reading it, and I thought hey, I have never really read a Cinderella’s retelling before, fantasy or otherwise. I didn’t have anything to compare it with.
Then I recalled reading Undercover Princess.
There was one more that I started reading the sample chapters – Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
The last one was Cinderella by Lisa Shea.
So far, I have read a total of four retellings.
- Gilded Ashes:
It was a Cinderella’s retelling in a fantasy world. The book was Gilded Ashes. It is a Cinderella’s retelling in a fantasy world.
The book was short, and beautifully written. The full review can be found here.
- Undercover Princess
This one has a modern today’s world setting.
The full review can be found here.
Cinderella is a strong and courageous woman. The setting is fantasy, of princes and castles.
The book was short, and quick to read. The full review can be found here.
This was a recommendation from my GR friend. This one is in a futuristic setting. I have only read the sample and the setting was not to my liking. But I will read it soon. Soon.
Apparently, there are many more. I realize that retellings are a nice way to give your own twist to the classic stories.
Sadly, I cannot come up with any plot to fit in any fairytale. Nor can i fit any of the existing work-in-progress stories as a retelling.
For now, I declare it as ‘not-my-cuppa-tea’.
