Caramellunacy: On of my favorites - I read this retelling of beauty in the beast in high school (I think) originally and was pleasantly surprised at how much it felt like the Disney movie in terms of tone and sense of magic.

Caramellunacy: I absolutely loved this re-telling of Cinderella. It stands pretty much as the pinnacle of what I wanted my middle grade reading to be. Plus I swooned a bit over Prince Charmont...
jain: Cinderella

Förklaringar
Caramellunacy: A lovely telling of an Asian-inspired (Mongolian?) fairy tale (with certain similarities to Rapunzel) involving a spirited young peasant woman determined to look out for her mistress.

merrystar : I love this, but it is not a fairy-tale retelling.

Caramellunacy: A retelling of Cinderella set in China. Very enjoyable, though painful to read sometimes.

flying_monkeys: For the same reason it was #1 in my Top 5 Books Read in 2013: it's a perfect blend of reality and magic, facts and folklore.
