Land of the beautiful dead. R. Lee smith Kinda a beauty & the beast story.
Still love Ella Enchanted.
Beastly, Alex Flinn (another Beauty & The Beast retelling)
Ooh he wrote a sleeping beauty retelling too, I think it was called ‘A Kiss in Time’ -amazing book.
Yes! I like that one too. I think Alex Flinn is a woman! Which gets me thinking about whether any men write these kind of stories!!

Forest of A Thousand Lanterns and it’s sequel Kingdom of The Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao. First one is the origin story of Snow White’s Evil Queen, and the second is the retelling of Snow White, both books set in Chinese setting
Splintered by A. G. Howard (Alice in Wonderland retelling), Dorothy Must Die (retelling of Wizard of Oz), The Night Dance by Suzanne Weyn (retelling of the 12 dancing princesses)- this series has a whole bunch of different retellings – the little mermaid, Cinderella, the princess and the pea, even Anastasia – and Entwined by Heather Dixon (another retelling of 12 dancing princesses).
Love the Dorothy Must Die books.

Peas and Princesses by Aleese Hughes. It’s quick and fun, but definitely a little dark. I like that type of thing, though. I think her second book is supposed to come out soon, too. I read it through Kindle Unlimited. I think she also sells other editions on Amazon.
