11 YA Fairy Tale Retellings That Are Way More Relatable Than The Original Stories

You already know that fairy tale retellings have been a part of storytelling culture for thousands of years. 

If you’ve fallen in love with diverse, queer and feminist fairytale retelling like Ash by Malindo Lo, you’re probably in the mood to pick up more of the same. I’ve got you covered with the 11 books below. Some are brand new 2019 releases, others are recent favorites in the queer retelling sector, while still others feature equally strong and diverse casts of characters, all wrapped up in a retold fairytale world.

Whether you’re looking for genderbent Robin Hood, queer Prince & the Pauper, or a Latinx version of Snow White, you’ll find it and so many more magical stories below.

1. ‘A Curse So Dark and Lonely’ by Brigid Kemmerer

This Beauty and the Beast retelling follows Prince Rhen, cursed into a beast by a powerful enchantress, and Harper, a teenage girl who might be able to save him. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall, and it will take more than a broken curse to save them from utter ruin. Read More.
