Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and The Bookish. This week is a freebie. I love freebie weeks. I get so excited about the infinite possibilities. Then I spazz because I have no idea what to write about. There are too many topics and it’s such a big decision. I don’t want to mess up my freebie. HOLY COW!
Anyhoo, this week I’ve decided to talk about retellings. I’m someone who enjoys seeing new versions of classic books I love. So here are a few to check out:
2. Austenland by Shannon Hale– This isn’t a true retelling, it’s more inspired by Austen and the gads of crazies who obsess over her swoony guys. Don’t look at me. I’m playing innocent over here even though I totally want to hang this in my house because it’s a quote from my beloved Mr. Knightley. Obsess much? Me? Never.
6. The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker– This is a retelling of…you guessed it, The Frog Prince. The Disney movie that came out out few years ago was based on the basic idea (the girl who kisses the frog actually turns into a frog as well), but the book is completely different. Very cute.
7. Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik– Hello, a P&P retelling where Darcy is the son of some super-famous celebs. This is the book that finally helped me get Darcy and that gigantic stick that resides up his butt. Finally!
