Monthly recommendations is a Goodreads group hosted by Kayla Rayne and Trina @Between Chapters. June’s topic is retellings!
Aw yissss I love a good retelling. This is so up my alley.
(I know June is almost over but shhh shhsh I’ve had a hell of a slumpy month.)
HERE WE GO!
Jackaby by William Ritter is a Sherlock-esque of a retelling, and I adore it. I’m so excited for the final book. (Though I continue to hope it’s not really an end!)
If you don’t know already, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is a sci-fi retelling of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snow White, and a slew of other references thrown in. I love it!
Honestly, anything you pick up by Alex Flinn is probably going to be a retelling. I haven’t read all of them, but A Kiss in Time is one of my favorites. I also like Beastly!
The Hollow Trilogy by Jessica Verday is a retelling … of sorts, of Sleepy Hollow. Maybe more like a sequel? It’s hard to explain, but it’s a good series for Halloween!
And, finally, Entwined by Heather Dixon is a retelling of Twelve Dancing Princesses, and it’s been a hot minute since I’ve read this one, so I plan on revisiting it at some point!

I’ve had Jackaby for so long and have yet to read it.
And I’d really like to try Entwined.
It’s not for everyone, but I liked it a lot! 🙂
