I always love making lists! So I’m participating in Top 5 Saturday which is organised by Mandy @Devouring Books.
This week’s topic is retellings! I mostly enjoy reading retellings, but sometimes I feel like it can make a book predictable. But I love it when the author makes an interesting twist on the original story! I also feel like sometimes the word retelling is really loosely used, since sometimes I can’t really see the original story in the book at all (which of course can be a problem coming from me) or it is a retelling of a story that I’ve never heard of before haha!
But here are 5 retellings that I really want to read!
- Alice by Christina Henry – Alice in wonderland retelling! (I honestly want to read all of Henry’s retellings)
- Spin the dawn by Elizabeth Lim – Mulan retelling! (I think at least)
- Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie Mclemore – Swan lake retelling! (I don’t think I’ve ever read a swan lake retelling, so this should be good!
- Scavenge the stars by Tara Sim – The count of monte Christo retelling! (I’m so excited to read this one!)
- Anna K by Jenny Lee – Anna Karenina retelling (this sounds like so much fun!)
