9. Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George

10. My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

This was was just a cute, fun re-telling of Cinderella (ish).


  1. Beauty by Robin McKinley is my all-time favorite. I happened upon it in our library quite randomly and have since read it, no lie, ten times.

    1. Wow, ten times? I'm impressed! I rarely re-read books, but I am thinking that it might be fun to re-read this one, since it was so good.;)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Beauty seems to be making everyone's list today... and that must be for good reads. Still have to read Marissa's re-telling series, and I've seen My Fair Godmother around. It does sound really cute. :)

    1. I didn't realize it would be such a popular choice! It is a good one though.;)
      I like all the books I have read by Janette Rallison, since they are nice, light reads.

  3. I must admit, Cinder is the only one I have read from your list, but a lot of them look really good! Book of a Thousand Days has definitely piqued my interest! Great list :)
