Number 7: Ash by Melinda Lo

AshAnother retelling of Cinderella on this list but this one I have read and I did enjoy it. This one also has a twist on the Cinderella but features a LGBTQ+ characters in this telling. It was enjoyable but I read it a few years ago. 









Number 6: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge 

Cruel BeautyThis is called a Beauty and the Beast retelling mixed with Graceling.











Number 5: Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)If you didn't tell by the title this is a retelling of Alice In Wonderland but with zombies. Need I say more...











Number 4: A Thousands Nights by E.K. Johnson 

A Thousand NightsThe story of a Thousand Nights is that every day he King gets a new wife however if he doesn't like her she will die. I don't know if the story is similar to the orginial but this one does sound interesting. Another retelling is the Wrath and The Dawn








Number 3: Splintered by A.G Howard

Splintered (Splintered, #1)Yet another Alice In Wonderland retelling but this has a twist involved in which I believe that Wonderland is real. 











Number 2: Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Another Beauty and The Beast retelling but this time with faeries/fey and I am excited to read this. This book has been hyped up by the book bloggers and booktubers so I am scared to read it but hopeful it lives up to the hype...









Number 1: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer

This series is the overall package, the amazing writing, the enjoyable characters, and plots that link directly to fairy tales. Cinder is a faiytale retelling of Cinderella and Scarlet being a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and Cress in a retelling of Rapunzel. Winter is a retelling of Snow White and is released later this year. They are not direct retelling as they have a sci-fi twist. This is one of the only series that I have read on this list and I highly recommend you read this.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
