Oh, The Bloody Chamber is cool, I was actually thinking of nominating that, although I don't read short stories that often.

The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter
The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter

The review that got me interested-

“This is a beautiful but (as the title suggests) deeply violent and sensual collection of fairy tales, retold in ways that make you wish that they were the first version you'd ever heard”

Sounds like my kind of book a fairy tale for adults :)

Definitely!

I nominate Beastly by Alex Flinn

It is a modern day Beauty and the Beast from the Beasts perspective!

One Nomination per person (2 if you really can't decide).

The book you nominate has to have something to do with Fairytales and Retellings!

Here are lists with examples:
