Barbara (barbara_b) | 13 comments I have heard that The Changeling is a retelling of a fairy tale, and I think I'm going to read that one!

Awesome, thanks Jenny!

Kelly (kelly72401) I am doing The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales for this one! Seems like it's a few retellings in one book.

Nastassja Power (nastassja02) | 6 comments I’m new to the whole book challenge so I’m wondering for the fairytale book that I’m picking if I could read Fairest of All A take of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino?

Jessica (jpetersonreads) | 6 comments I was just sent Girls Made of Snow and Glass which is perfect for this prompt!

For those looking for something short, I highly suggest Six-Gun Snow White. I read it a few years ago, and absolutely loved it.

Amanda (tnbooklover) I’m either going to use A Court of Thorns and Roses or Heartless. Both are books that have unread on my shelf for too long.

Eleni K (elenikara) | 4 comments I am probably going to do Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul if that counts?

Kelli (ukyprincesskelli) Oh I like this one!!!

Either:

Uprooted or Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.

I'm thinking Spinning Silver too.. but now that I saw Geekerella above.. maybe I'll go that route for something shorter.

Yes, that sounds like what we were getting at with this prompt. Have fun!

Kelli (ukyprincesskelli) I totally changed my pick for this one!

I decided to go with “Cinder” by Marissa Meyer. It’s been sitting on my shelf for far too long and needs to be read! 🤗

Marni (literaturenut) | 0 comments I'm super excited about this prompt as I get to read a book I picked up at Powell's when I was on vacation two years ago! Ash by Malinda Lo was one of their employee recommendations and it's been on my TBR long enough.
