My TBR is growing, which is only fair since I made you read Whiteout 😀 I have Spin The Dawn which is next on my January TBR. I’ve also been in the mood for some retellings, though I have to say (and I cannot explain it) I’ve been mostly reading Beauty and the Beast retellings *ponders* Anyway I shall read all of the books for you 😀

I feel like these days mostly we see Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast retellings, with little of anything else. Which is why I liked this post so much! There are so many other tales out their to retell. I haven’t read any of these, but I have heard of a lot of them and some are on my radar to try ^.^
