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:

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 :)

Wow Lauren that sounds very interesting!!!!!!

Heather Tribe (tribefox) I'm changing my nomination - same author, just a different book. I nominate Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire

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