Top 12 Eventyrs retellings bøger jeg rigtig gerne vil læse

Bloggen er gået en smule i fairy tale mode her op til #bogbloggertræffet, så i øjeblikket drømmer jeg om at læse disse eventyrlige genfortællinger.

Cinder eller The Lunar Chronicles serien har jeg faktisk kun hørt godt om, og jeg følger faktisk forfatterens blog, og jeg synes hun virker utrolig sympatisk, men jeg har aldrig fået taget mig sammen til at læse serien. Så forhåbentlig det snart bliver til noget..

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Beastly serien burde jo lige være noget for mig. En morderne fortælling af Skønheden og udyret. Grunden til jeg ikke er kommet i gang endnu, er faktisk pga. bogens filmatisering - som jeg har set - og som jeg ikke var så vild med. Jeg har dog hørt at bogen skulle være bedre.

I am a beast.

A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright--a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever--ruined--unless I can break the spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

Cinderella Ninja warrior drømmer jeg om at læse, ikke på grund af titlen, men fordi det er en choose your own adventur bog, og dem har jeg jo lidt en svaghed for.

In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince—she's a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!

Bitter Greens har jeg næsten lige erhvervet mig og jeg elsker det flotte cover.

You think you know the story of Rapunzel...

Charlotte-Rose de la Force, exiled from the court of the Sun King Louis XIV, has always been a great teller of tales.

Selena Leonelli, once the exquisite muse of the great Venetian artist Titian, is terrified of time.

Margherita, trapped in a doorless tower and burdened by tangles of her red-gold hair, must find a way to escape.

Three women, three lives, three stories, braided together in a compelling tale of desire, obsession and the redemptive power of love.

Once upon a time reawakened, er den skrevne historie der bygger på ABC's tv-serie Once upon a time, som jeg holder så utrolig meget af. Så den her er helt sikkert også højt på læselisten.

Emma Swan's life has been anything but a fairy tale. She's been on her own since she was abandoned as a baby--that is, until the night of her twenty-eighth birthday, when Henry, a ten-year-old boy, shows up on her doorstep. He's the son Emma gave up for adoption, and this surprise visit turns her life upside down.

Henry takes Emma back to his home in Storybrooke, Maine, where, Henry claims, all the residents are actually fairy tale characters who can't remember their true identities. And if Henry's right, that means that his sweet-natured, lonely schoolteacher Mary Margaret Blanchard is really Snow White, the iconic princess ... and also Emma's long-lost mother.

Stitching Snow er endnu ikke udkommet men alt tiltaler mig ved bogen. Lige fra coveret, til at det er Disney-Hyperion der udgiver til beskrivelsen.

Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival

The Fairest Beauty er endnu en snehvide historie - og dem kan man ikke få for mange af.

A daring rescue.
A difficult choice.

Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother's jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie's one chance at freedom—but can she trust another person to keep her safe?

Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl's inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible—she is his brother's future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else—he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what.

When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help—but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them—they must also protect their Hearts

Crown of Ice er en retelling af H.C. Andersens Snedronningen, og jeg har selv gået med en ide at skrive en retelling på lige netop det eventyr, men da jeg får læst mere end jeg får skrevet så kan det godt være jeg skal satse på at læse den her i stedet for at skrive min egen udgave.

Thyra Winther's seventeen, the Snow Queen, and immortal, but if she can't reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she's doomed to spend eternity as a wraith. Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. Unencumbered by kindness, she kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time rapidly melting away she needs all the help she can steal. A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai's childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles. Thyra's willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts -- to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within her breast. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup's devotion and the fire of a young man's desire, the thawing of Thyra's frozen heart could be her ultimate undoing. CROWN OF ICE is a YA Fantasy that reinvents Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" from the perspective of a young woman who discovers that the greatest threat to her survival may be her own humanity

Cold spell er egentlig 4 bog i en hel serie af retellings. Serien hedder da også Fairytale retellings, men jeg har læst at de kan læses separat, og jeg tror godt jeg i dette tilfælde kunne finde på at begynde med Cold Spell, mere fordi det var den der gjorde mig nysgerrig på serien og ikke de andre.

Kai and Ginny grew up together–best friends since they could toddle around their building’s rooftop rose garden. Now they’re seventeen, and their relationship has developed into something sweeter, complete with stolen kisses and plans to someday run away together.

But one night, Kai disappears with a mysterious stranger named Mora–a beautiful girl with a dark past and a heart of ice. Refusing to be cast aside, Ginny goes after them and is thrust into a world she never imagined, one filled with monsters and thieves and the idea that love is not enough.

If Ginny and Kai survive the journey, will she still be the girl he loved–and moreover, will she still be the girl who loved him?

The Stepsister's tale lyder for mig spændende fordi jeg elsker at få indblik i andre synsvinkler som en historie kan have. Det er for mig utrolig fascinerende.

Jane Montjoy is tired of being a lady. She's tired of pretending to live up to the standards of her mother's noble family-especially now that the family's wealth is gone and their stately mansion has fallen to ruin. It's hard enough that she must tend to the animals and find a way to feed her mother and her little sister each day. Jane's burden only gets worse after her mother returns from a trip to town with a new stepfather and stepsister in tow. Despite the family's struggle to prepare for the long winter ahead, Jane's stepfather remains determined to give his beautiful but spoiled child her every desire.

When her stepfather suddenly dies, leaving nothing but debts and a bereaved daughter behind, it seems to Jane that her family is destined for eternal unhappiness. But a mysterious boy from the woods and an invitation to a royal ball are certain to change her fate...

From the handsome prince to the evil stepsister, nothing is quite as it seems in Tracy Barrett's stunning retelling of the classic Cinderella tale.

Princess of the Midnight Ball har stået på min læseliste så længe at jeg slet ikke kan huske hvad det var der tiltalte mig ved den. Men efter jeg læste teksten igen så var jeg selvfølgelig solgt.

A tale of twelve princesses doomed to dance until dawn… Galen is a young soldier returning from war; Rose is one of twelve princesses condemned to dance each night for the King Under Stone. Together Galen and Rose will search for a way to break the curse that forces the princesses to dance at the midnight balls. All they need is one invisibility cloak, a black wool chain knit with enchanted silver needles, and that most critical ingredient of all—true love—to conquer their foes in the dark halls below. But malevolent forces are working against them above ground as well, and as cruel as the King Under Stone has seemed, his wrath is mere irritation compared to the evil that awaits Galen and Rose in the brighter world above.

Captivating from start to finish, Jessica Day George’s take on the Grimms’ tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses demonstrates yet again her mastery at spinning something entirely fresh out of a story you thought you knew.

A Kiss at Midnight er den første serien i en historisk kærligheds serie der hedder fairy tales og hver bog er en retelling af et klassisk eventyr. Det hjælper også lidt på det at jeg har læst andre af Eloisa James' andre bøger og jeg kan rigtig godt lide hendes skrivestil.

Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales . . . or happily ever after.

Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince . . . and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman—a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.

Gabriel likes his fiancée, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.

Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.

Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble . . .

Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune . . .

Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything

  1. Uh, der er godt nok mange gode at se på.
    Selv har jeg læst Cinder, som jeg varmt vil anbefale til enhver eventyrglad person, Bitter Greens var jeg også begejstret for fordi det er en meget anderledes Rapunzel fortælling, som også inddrager den originale kvindelige forfatter. Beastly er bestemt bedre som bog end som film. Filmen er en typisk YA som bare skal tiltrække de skrigende tøser, hvorimod bogen har meget mere at byde på.

    Stitching Snow er også på min venteliste og jeg ser frem til når den udkommer. Og så ser Crown of ice helt vildt lækker ud, og med Snedronningen er det ikke et eventyr man læser mange udgaver af, i hvert fald ikke i forhold til mange af de andre.

    1. Ja jeg har også hørt rigtig meget godt om Cinder, så den står også øverst på listen. :0) Og jeg håber inderligt der bliver plads til den her i slutningen af måneden. *krydser fingre!

      Nej jeg vil nemlig helt vildt gerne læse bøger med retellings af snedronningen, og den her lyder helt vild fed.
