On GoodReads, and also on blogs and YouTube, there is such a thing as 'Top 5 Wednesday' where every Wednesday there is a bookish topic and then you talk about your top 5 (creator: GingerReadsLainey). For Dutch blogs, they do a "Top Ten on Thursday" (by Emmy from Zon en Maan. For example for this week the topic is 'Favourite Retellings (fairytales, myths, literature, etc.)'. I thought it might be a nice idea to do this here, so every Wednesday (or maybe Thursday) I will post the topic of that week and whoever's interested can post their top 5 (usually involving books, but on occasion it can be about for example book to movie adaptations). The top 5 doesn't have to be in order (ie. 1, 2, 3,...), but it can be if you want it to. Since I know most of us find it hard to choose, we could change top 5 into a top 10 instead, I'll leave that up to the posters, we can just see how it goes. Hopefully there will be at least one reply! So for this week the topic is Top 5 (or 10) Favourite Retellings (fairytales, myths, literature, ...) I have to admit I haven't read a lot of retellings, the main ones that come to mind are the Stilton retellings of famous literary works. I have some retellings I still want to read though. Here's my top 5 of what I can think of right now (not in any particular order): Natsuki Takaya - Fruits Basket series Melissa Nathan - Acting Up Juliet Marillier - Trilogy van de Zeven Wateren 1: Dochter Van Het Woud (Sevenwaters 1: Daughter Of The Forest) Geronimo Stilton - De Avonturen van Robinson Crusoe (Le Avventure di Robinson Crusoe) Geronimo Stilton - De Avonturen van Koning Arthur (La Avventure di Re Artù) And another 5 (okay, so I couldn't stick to a top 5 ): Geronimo Stilton - Het Jungleboek (Il Libro Della Giungla) Geronimo Stilton - Alice in Wonderland (Dutch translation) (Alice Nel Paese Delle Meraviglie) Geronimo Stilton - De Geheime Tuin (Il Giardino Segreto) Geronimo Stilton - Robin Hood (Dutch) Geronimo Stilton - Heidi (Dutch) And here are some retellings I want to read (I'm just throwing this in.. for the sake of it ): Marissa Meyer - The Lunar Chronicles Naomi Novik - Uprooted Rick Riordan - Percy Jackson and the Olympians series (& other series) Sarah J. Maas - Throne of Glass Alison Goodman - Eon series Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer - Between the Lines series (fairytale themed) Michael Buckley - The Sisters Grimm series Isaac Marion - Warm Bodies Other Stilton retellings What are your top 5 or 10 favourite retellings?
