Favorite Fairytale Retellings

Fairytale retellings. 

I adore them. I don't mind if it's a direct retelling or if it's a fairytale inspired book. 
It could be YA or NA. Fantasy or Urban Fantasy leaning. 
I've put together a few of my favorites. Some of these are not necessarily fairytale based, but myths and folklore as well as a new take on some of the classics. 


(YA Beauty and the Beast)
(YA Beauty and the Beast)
(Wizard of Oz)
(Dark Fairytale with slight Red Riding Hood leaning)
(Red Riding Hood)
(The Wild Swans-Hans Christian Andersen)

(Beauty and the Beast)
(loosely Cinderella vibes)
(Not really a retelling but still has that classic fairytale feel)
(Alice in Wonderland)
Madman's Daughter (Island of Dr. Moreau)

(Baba Yaga)
(Beauty and the Beast)
(Captain Hook)
(EVERYTHING all at once!)
(The Singing Bone by Brothers Grimm)
(If Terry Pratchett wrote a fairytale)

Do you have a favorite that's not on the list?
