Top Ten Tuesday on Wednesday - Fairytale Retellings


First of all...
in the interest of full disclosure...
I ain't a fan of the fairytale.


Not at all


Seriously.

Soooooo....when I saw this week's topic for Top Ten Tuesday, I rolled my eyes. 

I did.

But then I started thinking about retellings that might be so different from the originals that they make the story BETTER.

Snarkier.

Darker.

Muahahahahaha!

Mindlessly searching the bowels of the Internet, I stumbled on some titles that looked at least worth looking into, including Dorothy Must Die, Wicked, Scarlet, and Insanity.  

I didn't find 10 I could convince myself to try and lost interest pretty quickly.

And, then I looked back over my list.

Dorothy Must Die.



Wicked





Scarlet



and 

Insanity



Maybe I should skip the fairytales right now.




Yeah.
