Just Ella By Margaret Peterson Haddix

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Matched by Ally Condie

Surprise! The last one isn’t a fairytale retelling! Ally Condie’s writing is just so rich and lyrical, and her world-building is excellent, so I couldn’t resist adding her to the list.


  1. Awesome list! Shannon Hale is a favorite of mine, too. I might just copy and paste this entire post into my to-read list, although I've read and can therefore wholeheartedly agree with you on Ella Enchanted, Beauty, and Matched. :)

  2. I'm with you 100% on Shannon Hale and your recommendations. East is one of my favorite fairy tales ever and this is actually the first time I've seen it featured on a blog. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  3. Great list! I've been working on "Retelling Fairy Tales" lists for work, it's so much fun!

    1. I actually have a list of over a hundred fairy tale retellings if you need help. It's buried somewhere in my archives...


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
