Hi, lovelies! We’re halfway through Contemporary January already! So many books to be read and so many recommendations to be made. This week we are talking about two topics that I couldn’t find enough to give them lists of their own so I will be including them in one post together for their recommendations as well as their TBR list.
Splintered by A.G. Howard
An Alice in Wonderland retelling. I loved this trilogy. It was so fun and twisty.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith
A classic, but with zombies. What could go wrong?
Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz
This was a fun cutesy romance retelling set in modern times.
Timeless Fairy Tales by K.M. Shea
This series is one I found on Kindle Unlimited. Its a whole series of retellings from The Beauty and the Beast to the Twelve Dancing Princess. They’re fun and quick to read.
Quincey Wolf’s Glass Vault by Candice Robinson
A twisted modern story that features fairytale characters here and there.
The Shack by William Paul Young
A story that blew me away. I’ve loved all the books I’ve read by this author.
Teardrop by Lauren Kate
A story about a girl that can’t cry? Count me in.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
If you haven’t heard of the Night Circus then what rock have you been living under?
These are just some of the books I really enjoyed that fall under the category of magical realism or a retelling. What retellings do you love? Which books with magical realism are on your favorites list?
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
