All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday! It’s been a very long time. My semester is over, so I’m hoping to post a few of these during my summer break. But considering I’ve been trying to get this finished for a month and a half, I’m not sure how that will go. Today we’re taking a… Continue reading All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday!  Today’s book is a little bit different from past ones because Enchanted is a mash-up of several different fairy tales.  It has references to “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The Princess and the Pea,” “The Red Shoes,” and more.  But the two tales it draws on the most are “The Frog Prince” and “Cinderella,” so I’ll be… Continue reading Enchanted by Alethea Kontis

Ash by Malinda Lo

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday!  It’s been a while!  My work schedule was really hectic all last month.  Things have slowed down now, which hopefully means I’ll get back to consistently posting these! Ash has been on my TBR for ages, and I’m so glad I got to pick it up.  A special thanks… Continue reading Ash by Malinda Lo

Special Edition: The Princess and the Pea Retold by Xanthe Gresham and Illustrated by Miss Clara

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday! Today’s post is a special edition in two ways. First, it is part of my Fairy Tale February 2020 event. Second, instead of looking at a retelling, we’ll be looking at an illustrated children’s book. I’ll be using the same two section format for today’s post instead of the… Continue reading Special Edition: The Princess and the Pea Retold by Xanthe Gresham and Illustrated by Miss Clara

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday!  Today we’re going to take a look at the first “Snow White” retelling of this feature.  “Snow White” was one of my favorite fairy tales as a young kid.  Apparently I used to watch the Disney movie several times per day, and the illustrations for it in my childhood fairy… Continue reading Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George

Welcome back to Fairy Tale Friday!  Today we’re looking at the conclusion to the Princesses of Westfalin series.  Even though this book came out in 2012, I didn’t know it existed until this year.  This is the first novel-length retelling I’ve read of “Little Red Riding Hood.”  The only others I’ve read are two short stories by Angela… Continue reading Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George
