Hello! Today I have another post where I am checking in on my older posts! Because this week, the Top 5 Tuesday topic was Top 5 Retellings, I thought it would be a good time to revisit my old post: Retellings on my TBR. I love retellings, but for some reason it always takes me longer to get to those books than any others. I know for a fact that I have so many more books that need to be included n this list now, so I might do a part 2 very soon! Anyway, for today, let’s see if I have read any of the retellings from my TBR in March 2020.
Alice by Christina Henry
Starting this one off, with one I mention all the time about being on my TBR. I need to get this one off of my TBR ASAP. I love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the premise of this book is a wild version of the original story and I just need to get to it soon.
Lost Boy by Christina Henry
I used to have a problem of buying series or books by the same author before I have read them which is how I ended up with another Christina Henry book. This one is a Peter Pan retelling, and again I am super excited for it!
Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer
Spindle Fire is one that I have actually started, but I have not finished it yet. This one is a sleeping beauty retelling and from what I remember the story follows two sisters, one who is blind and the other who has no voice and no sense of touch. It has such an interesting concept and I need to get it off my TBR.
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
I have read this one! I read this one at the end of 2020. I think I talk about this one all the time, and even mentioned it on Tuesday! It is such a great Beauty and the Beast Retelling. You can check out my review: here.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
This is actually the only one that I have not bought yet. I keep meaning to purchase the series, but for some reason I keep talking myself out of it. I loved Heartless by the same author, but I know that The Lunar Chronicles is such a well loved series that I am a little bit scared that it won’t live up to the hype for me.
I did not do a very good job at getting any of these off of my TBR. I am hoping that by this time next year, I will have at least a couple more of these books read.
