Spelled by Betsy Schow. Dorthy Must Die series.
@Leilani Gonna check that out!
@Tanya check out A Twisted Novel series. It’s Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid & Mulan. Snow White comes out soon.
@Leilani will surely do!?
The Ravenspire series by CJ Redwine ?
@Cheyenne Sounds good?
@Cheyenne I wanna read this too!
They’re fabulous, wasn’t the biggest fan of the Blood Spell which is the newest one but it’s still worth a read. The Wish Granter is my favourite ?
I love Arabian fairy tales! One of my favorites, (not sure the origin), was about a King who would kill any cook whose dishes displeased him. Finally a chef saved his own life by cooking only dishes that the King had never tasted!
@Pamela Interesting. What was the name??
@Tanya I don’t remember, it was so long ago, I hope you find it though. I remember a big beautifully illustrated book of Arabian Fairy Tales, but I could be wrong.
@Pamela I’ll try to find it. Thanks!?
@Tanya if you do, will you let me know?
I also love the darkness in lots of old fairytales, it seems like over the years some of them have been diluted
I still can’t find the one I was referring to, but it’s sending me on a fantastic search!
@Pamela Will try this one for sure!?
The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Masterfully written, dark and delightful!
@Ásgerður agreed!!! ?
The lunar Chronicals by Marissa Meyer. You will love them!
@Marlene ^^ yes and heartless by her is in my top 5 favorites
@Tanya I hope you love the series! It’s such a fun spin on the princess fairy tales :).
Sherri Tepper wrote some fairytale stories. Beauty is one, but there are others I’m sure. It’s been a while since I read any which is why I’m a bit vague.
@Angela I’ll check that out. Thank you!?
The Light Princess
At the Back of the North Wind
