TBR: Retold Fairy Tales

I love myself a good retelling. As the years go by, there are more and more of these books out there. I'll be adding books to this list as I find them and decide I want to read them. They'll get paired up with the tale they're based on. If there are multiple titles based on an original tale (which there are bound to be), they will simply be listed in a column under the original tale. If it's a hodgepodge of past tales or a simply a book I consider a modern original fairy tale, it will be listed under "Miscellaneous". Every finished tale and/or book will have a strike-through, a link to it's page on Goodreads, my rating, and the date finished.

Titles will be added alphabetically by the original tale.
