Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by
This Week's Topic is:
Cinder - Scarlet - Cress - The Queens Army - Glitches - The Little Android
This is definitely an amazing series JAM PACKED full of amazing retellings. The series starts out with Cinder which is a futuristic retelling of Cinderella. In Scarlet we add two amazing characters that would be the equivalent of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, and the third novel, Cress we introduce a Rapunzel -esq character. Of course no story would be complete with out a bad or evil queen as well ! The Queens Army is a Novella to Scarlet thats shows you how Wolf became what he is, and Glitches is a novel which is a prequel to Cinder. The Little Android is a standalone Novella that shows similarities to the little mermaid. I loved it, it was about an android or a machine who develops feelings ( definitely a glitch from what is expected for a normal android) for a Human man. This whole series is amazing, never a dull moment and a MUST READ for fan of Fairy tale retellings !!!
# 7 Tiger Lilly - Jodi Lynn Anderson
A great new take on Peter Pan told from Tiger Lillys view on things and Tinker Bell as the Narrator. Tells us what happened between Tiger lilly and Peter before Wendy every came on the island.
# 8 Beastly - Alex Flinn
A Modern day retelling of Beauty & The Beast. There is also a Movie to go along with it.
# 9 Sirena - Donna Jo Napoli
A great book that I read back in middle school. similar to the Little Mermaid but different. A sirens voice is deadly to men. but Sirena ( a mermaid ) falls in love with an injured man left for dead on an island.
# 10 The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
Seriously one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS !!! A wonderful story about a boy who gets lost in this different realm. David has to travel through this world in search for the King and a way back home. This world is jamm packed full of fairy tale characters, all with a twist. No story is complete without a bad guy , and in this book it the one who's name you do not speak. Very much like Rumpelstilskin (sp).
