Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week for TTT, we get to list our favorite authors in X genre. This is actually kind of hard for me. I couldn’t really think of ten authors in any genre that I loved. Anway, I am so excited about Project: Fairy Tale developed by Alison from The Cheap Reader, so I thought I would list some of my favorite authors who write fairy tale retellings.
1. Jessica Day George. My favorite of hers is Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, but Princess of the Midnight Ball is fantastic, too. And I was just approved from Netgalley to read Princess of the Silver Woods. So excited!
2. Shannon Hale. Three words: The Goose Girl. AMAZING!
3. Alex Flinn. Beastly was such a fun retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
4. Rick Riordan – okay so he doesn’t really do retellings, and they aren’t really fairytales, but it’s my list, so I’m including him. 🙂 Besides myths share some common ground with fairytales.
5. Robin McKinley. Although it took me a little bit to get into, Beauty was a beautiful retelling of Beauty and the Beast (can you tell I love this particular fairytale?)
6. Gail Carson Levine. Queen of fairytale retellings. How can anyone forget the awesomeness of Ella Enchanted. It was the first fairytale retelling I ever read, and I was immediately hooked. Fairest is awesome, too.
What do you think? Have I left anyone out?
