Fairytale & Other Retellings I Want to Read About


As a lover of the fantasy genre, I wanted to discuss some fairytales and mythological/historical stories that I think would make amazing retellings. A lot of the times we see authors write about the same ones so these are ones that are not as popular when it comes to retellings.

  1. I’ve been working on a sort of retelling of the myth of Icarus and Daedalus. Sort of, Icarus survived the fall and he helped create a league of bird people. I’ve been slowly chipping out the story for a few years now, just need a bit more to work on. Also a retelling of the Labyrinth and the Minotaur, but I need to think a bit more about that.

      1. It will be sort of historical fiction with YA in it. So far where I start out it’s a young girl in this time period who learns of her powers and learns that she is actually in the line of the first family that Icarus created, but I really haven’t looked at the story in a while because of school and other things.

  2. The Wish Granter by CJ Redwine was Rumpelstiltskin. She also had Hansel and Gretel as characters if I’m remembering right. I ended up really liking that one.

    I would definitely love a Medusa retelling. I love your picks and hope we see quite a few of those soon. I love retellings.

              1. Well, in order to do so, you should probably be asked by a writer. I already have two Betas. One of them, my friend Christine, has already read the 2/3 of my current WIP and the other one will read it when the first draft is complete. If you’re interested, I could send you the file of the first draft when it’s ready.
