Alright everyone! This is going to be a pretty enormous blog post because I am listing fairy tales & fractured fairy tales picture books, & then I'm going to mention a few novels for adults too! Who doesn't love a good fairy tale? Be sure to tune into episode #28 of my podcast to hear me discuss the benefits of reading fairy tales aloud. And please share any of your favorites with me! Beauty & The Beast will always be my absolute favorite, but I love finding new versions of fairy tales or rediscovering older ones.
Adult Fractured Fairy Tale Novels:
1. A Curse So Dark & Lonely
by: Brigid Kemmerer
(Where are my Beauty & the Beast fans? I have always loved Belle, & I think you'll like her role in this version of Beauty & the Beast just as much as the Disney movie & fairy tale.)
6. Twisted Tales (So This is Love) (As Old As Time)
by: Elizabeth Lim
(Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Snow White....all the princesses fall upon a fate different than the typical fairy tale reads; they go to battle with the villains of their stories & it makes for quite the twist!)
