  1. This was such a fun post idea this week. I love retellings and you picked some good ones. I am not familiar with some of your choices but the covers look awesome. Drop by my blog and sign up for my give-away. It relates to today's meme.

  2. I didn't realize what Uprooted was about until about an hour ago and now I need to get my hands on a copy. The Wrath and the Dawn is amazing and you should definitely read it asap.

    1. I'm still not quite sure what it's about exactly, but I want to keep it a little mysterious. Glad to hear you loved TWATD!

  3. Good list, I've been wanting to read The Wrath and the Dawn! Some of these others sounds good, I'll have to look into those too. Thanks for stopping by my blog & Happy Summer Reading!

  4. Oh oh I totally think TW&TD counts as a fairy tale because it's kind of like a Persian fairy tale, right?! Or folklore. Or whatever. ANYWAY. YOU NEED TO JUST DROP EVERYTHING AND EAT IT ASAP BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL BOOK OF EVER. *hyperventilates* I just read it last month and afjdksla allllll the feels.
    Here's my TTT!

  7. I wouldn't be much help because I haven't read any of the titles you mention. They all sound good though! I The Wrath and the Dawn is one I have heard about quite a bit in recent months and I am curious about that one. The Sleeper and the Spindle caught my attention because of mention of Gaiman. I've enjoyed what I have read by him so far. Thank you for sharing!

  10. I haven't read any of these either! Although I think I've heard the MOST good things about The Wrath and the Dawn. I don't think I've seen a bad review for that yet!
