  1. Great list! I really want to read A Court of Thorns and Roses. I never hear of Ash but it sounds good! Great list please see mine here http://wonderstruck-kcks.blogspot.com/2015/08/ten-fairytale-retellings-ive-read-want.html

  2. The book I want to read most badly is "A Court of Thorns and Roses". I think this one is practically on everyone's list! It sounds so awesome!

    You have such a terrific list here! I also want to read "Cinder", "Cruel Beauty", and "Ella Enchanted"!

  3. It's only through all of these lists today that I found out that ACOTAR was a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I have never heard of Princess of the Midnight Ball, I love the fairy tale it's based on so I will have to check it out!
