In the process of putting this list together, I realized that I have read an even larger number of story retellings than I realized. I've always known that I've read a lot of them, but the list was even longer than I anticipated. In interest of keeping this blog post manageable, I didn't include them all. However, I did put together a list on goodreads of the 49 books of this type that I have read (and remembered enough to put on a list). This will be an even 50 once interlibrary loan delivers to me that Jack and the Beanstalk retelling.
Do you have any recommendations of fractured fairy tales that I should check out? Let me know in the comments! I hear Robin McKinley is fantastic, but I don't even know where to start. Also, what is your favorite fairy tale/folk tale?
