Theme Thursday: Fairy Tales Retold

Heylo! I know it's technically Wednesday still, but it's minutes to midnight (that's a song/band, right? *sigh* that's gonna bug me, my Google never wants to cooperate so I can find out...) (also, when this is published it might be past. Oh well, no need to be so technical!)so CLOSE ENOUGH.

Theme Thursday is a weekly showcase of books that all share similar somethings- themes and issues, covers, titles, characters, basically any kind of tie-in, created in August by Serendipity Reviews (this blog).

This week's theme is...
Fairy Tales Retold!

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino (A retelling of Snow White)
The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy (I can't WAIT for this to come out... I should go do my WoW post on it :P)

Ash by Malinda Lo (This have a marvelous cover that makes me want to cry a bit. According to the author it's a retelling of Cinderalla too, but beyond that I have no clue what it's about.)
Beastly by Alex Flinn (A retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I adore this cover as well!)
Geek Charming by Robin Palmer (The snooty, chick-lit version of Snow White that I bought forever ago and can't bring myself to read)

Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer (From the title you can tell it's a retelling of Cinderella!)
A Curse Dark As Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce (A retelling of... what's that one about the girl who spins gold and this freaky gnome thing helps her? That one. It'll come to me :P I've been wanting to read this forever, since early last year :P)

There was a myriad of other Cinderella remakes... one I've read, Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I'm not at all impressed with her books.

Showcase time!

That's all for this week, bye!
