Welcome back to my bookish retellings and this time I am back onto fairy tales and bringing you Sleeping Beauty, Disney’s third princess tale from 1959. It would be a thirty year gap between this film and The Little Mermaid, so in my mind this makes the story of Sleeping Beauty an even greater classic.
I also prefer this film and story in general so it is great that there are quite a few retellings that pique my interest.
So before we all fall asleep for hundreds of years, let’s get to it:
A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas
Once Upon A Time: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell
Gathering Frost by Kaitlyn Davis
Beauty by Sheri S Tepper
Spindle by EK Johnston (this one is the second in a series but from what I’ve read of this book already, it is perfectly okay as a standalone)
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
Wide Awake Princess by E.D. Baker
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
And that is that.
Of course if I have missed any good ones off, feel free to drop them down into the comments so that we can all check them out!
Thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!
