YA Retellings I’m Interested In // Top 5 Wednesday

0b52cfa20534e151d7c781034eb22588 (1)

Hello, and happy Wednesday!

Todays Top 5 Wednesday topic is a freebie! And so I figured I’d talk about my Top 5 YA Retellings I want to read.

Retellings of fairy tales and of classics are huge in the young adult community but to be honest, there really aren’t many I want to read. As you can tell by the title of todays Wednesday post, there are five I’m interested in.

All weekly topics can be found HERE.

1- Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

6357708

This is a retelling of Red Riding Hood I believe … but with werewolves! I’m not about to turn that down especially when I found it for cheap on my Kindle.

2- Everland by Wendy Spinale

26085520

I’ve heard really good things about Everland, with it being a retelling of Peter Pan with a deadly virus with only children surviving. I believe it’s the start of a trilogy that also are retellings, one of them being the Wizard of Oz.

3- Insanity by Cameron Jace

18910286Insanity is an Alice in Wonderland retelling, and after accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. That sounds so cool to me! I’ve seen it around on the kindle store for a while and I really want to read it.

4- Peter Darling by Austin Chant

33358438

Another Peter Pan retelling! I love this cover so much! This is a story of Peter leaving Neverland to grow up.  That’s all I know, that’s all I really want to know, but it does have some good ratings online.

5- Ever Alice by HJ Ramsay

And also another Alice retelling! With a more or less exact same plot of Alice ending up in an asylum. I don’t know too much besides this. I got this on Netgalley as an arc so hopefully I’ll read it before it’s publication in August.
