    You have so many that I haven’t heard of. I need to look into these. Oh my gosh, how could I forget The Wrath and the Dawn?! I couldn’t have added anymore, though. I already cheated and chose twelve :).

  2. I’m reading The Wrath and the Dawn right now and I’m really loving it, so I definitely think it’s worth your time.

    I DNFed Spelled but seeing it on all of these lists I’m wondering if I should give it another chance.

  3. I really liked reading Entwined and I really want to read Cruel Beauty. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about it and based off of everyone’s top 10 list it seems like a must-read! My favorite fairytales are about princesses, but I love reading their retellings with a darker twist.

  4. I’ve only read Beastly from your list, and it was ok. Not my fave, but I enjoyed it enough to read one of her other books – Bewitching. I’ve had Entwined on my eReader for a long time, but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, and I’m also looking forward to The Wrath and the Dawn.

  5. Beastly is one I haven’t read, but I do want to! I have seen the movie and actually through that I learned it was first a book, so I am doing things in reverse there. I have my copy of The Wrath and The Dawn waiting for me to dive into! I really do want to read it because well, I love a good retelling. I am a bit retelling crazy at the moment, which is why I could appreciate this blog post so much!
