Note: I put 3 asterisks beside the titles I have read and recommend. I have not read all of the books I put in these lists, so be sure to check them all out!
I have neglected this website a lot in the past two months for different reasons. The most important one is that seem to suddenly have difficulties reading long books, almost nothing can retain my attention. So I mostly just read bits and pieces here and there, or short stories online, or, best of all, fairy tales. So I thought I could make this Monday's list on my most loved fairy tale retellings.
