With the abundance of fairytales - retellings or not - how can one pick which ones to read? Well, a great cover is an easy sell for us! Wendy Higgins' The Great Hunt and The Great Pursuit (out next week!) have phenomenal covers and inspired us to share a few of our favorite fairytale/adjacent covers. See three of our favs below!
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
Killing me softly was one of those reads that just grabbed me from the beginning and would not let me go. I was intrigued by this world and it's fairy tale adaptations. Mira was girl determined and Blue is the boy that wants to save her by sending her away so that his older brother Felix does not ruin her but despite his attempts, Mira is drawn to Felix and so the drama is afoot. This novel is recommended to anyone who likes a modern twisted fairy tale.
Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
My birthday is Saturday, but my family is coming to Chattanooga tonight to celebrate 😋🎉 y'all, I don't want to be 25. I feel like it's the gateway to 30 lol and then how can I justify reading ya at 30 ?? 😂😅 • Day 2 of #bookishfriendsfeb17 #princess • • #fallingkingdoms #morganrhodes #princessofthemidnightball #jessicadaygeorge #theprincessandthehound #metteiveharrison #entwined #heatherdixon #booksandcandles #spockthecat
One of my favorite fairy tales is of The Twelve Princesses and Jessica Day George does not disappoint with this rendition in Princess of the Midnight Ball. In fact, I think I enjoy her version of the story better. Its a story of handsome and gallant heroes, beautifully courageous young princesses and evil villains. What more could you want in a story that is well known and intriguing, but to have it retold with new vigor and romance. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone.
Darklight by Lesley Livingston
I am a huge fan of Lesley Livingston and this series was my absolute favorite. Beautifully told with gorgeous prose that is filled with romance and breathtaking story telling. You will devour this Shakespearean inspired tale in a fortnight and never be the same again. Simply amazing.
The Great Pursuit
by Wendy Higgins
Published: March 7th 2017
Lochlanach has traded the great beast for something far more terrible, a Lashed enemy veiled in beauty, deception, and a vengeance passed down through generations: Rozaria Rocato. And she’s offering the hunter Paxton Seabolt power and acceptance he could never receive in his homeland. Pax must decide how far he’s willing to go under her tutelage, knowing she is the opponent of Princess Aerity Lochson.
In a land where traditionalists dread change, the Lochlan throne must contend with mysterious foes and traitors, while attempting to keep revolt at bay. As dire circumstances strike the royal family, matters of the castle are left in Aerity’s hands. It's time to put aside her fears and grasp the reign, taking actions that have the potential to save or destroy her people.
One hunt has ended, but the pursuit for love and justice continue. In this sequel to The Great Hunt from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, political intrigue and romance intensify in another thrilling fantasy. Princess Aerity embraces a quest for identity and passion before making the ultimate sacrifice for her kingdom.
