  1. I think, out of all the fairy tales, I would probably like a retelling of Hansel and Gretel, I think -- because all the other fairy tale retellings follow princesses and curses. It would be interesting to see what could be done with it.

    Also, I'm *really excited* for this book, so this contest is great~!

  2. Hmm...most fairy tales have already been retold many, many times. I liked the Princess and the Frog. I thought that one was pretty funny/cute/sweet, so I'd like a novel that bases its story around that idea.

    Thanks for the contest!

  3. Fairy tale or myth retold: My three favorites (Mulan, Twelve Dancing Princesses and East o'the Moon, West o'the Sun) have all been done at various times. I wouldn't mind something like the Japanese fairy tale of Susano or Amaterasu being done. You don't often see them being done in Western fiction.

  4. I think retelling could get very imaginative with Princess and the Frog.

  7. It's true that most of fairy tales have already been retold but i would like to see the princess and the frog =D

  8. I'd like to see something more boy-centric, like Hansel and Gretel or Jack and the Beanstalk. A lot of them are pretty girly, which is okay, but I think that there's room to pull in a male audience.

  9. I would love to see a telling of The Little Mermaid, it's just my favorite fairy tale. I love the ending when she turns into sea foam.

  12. I love any and all fairy tale retellings, and I've even tried to write some myself. I love retellings of fairy tales that aren't as well known, like Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. I do think it would be cool to see a retelling of Little Mermaid or Princess and the Pea.

  13. I would love to read a retelling of The Little Mermaid or Hansel and Gretel. That would be great too!

  14. Cinderella is & always has been one of my favorites to have retold. But I'd also love to see Little Red Riding Hood updated & maybe changed a bit. What if the Big Bad Wolf isn't a wolf? What if he's a con-artist? Then who is the woodcutter?

    I think it would be fun. Of course, I love all fairy tale retellings. : )

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. I would like to read a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling" from a person's point of view instead of ducks and swans.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'd choose The Steadfast Tin Soldier by Hans Christian Andersen. It does not seem very popular among storytellers, and I think it has something to do with the soldier being less than the usual Prince Charming material. A modern version might have someone coming home from a tour of duty with only one leg. A challenge to write about, at the very least!

  21. I would love to read a retelling of Peter Pan! :D I loveeee Peter Pan :D

  22. I would like to read a retelling of Hansel and Gretel. I think everything else has been done already, but I can't think of a retelling of this story.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would like to see a great, thorough retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses and Rapunzel because I think those stories have so much more that can be looked into.

  24. An interesting retelling??

    I love Arthurian lore. How about a modern follow-up to the tales of King Arthur. Set in modern day, with characters who are the descendants of the "real" King. And somehow the events of the past begin to play out again in modern day. Magic sword and all!

  25. Princess and the frog, or anything from King Arthur's tales or Shakespeare's comedies. ...Not that those are actually "fairy-tales" but eh. I'd love to see a YA book revolve around any of those plots, while adding a unique twist.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think that will be good a retelling for cinderella or Red Riding Hood ^^

  27. I would love to see Sleeping Beauty retold.

  28. Great review. The books sounds very good. I would like to see Beauty and the Beast or the Little Mermaid retold. Tore923@aol.com

  29. I like to see a retelling of The Wild Swans. As a child the thought of her trampling all those nettles just pained me.

  30. I'd like to read the retelling of Hansel and Gretel, which reminds me of the creepy old lady who eats little kids.

  31. I'd love to see Rapunzel retold. I have a fascination for hair.

  32. I'd love to read a retelling of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. It is one fairy tale replete with all the ingredients of a blockbuster book for me! :)
    Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway!

  33. I would love to see the story of Demeter's daughter Persephone's abduction retold. I've always LOVED that!

  34. I pretty much love any fairy tale retelling so it's hard to choose... I'd like to see a well done novelization of The Little Mermaid. Even though it's tragic it's one of my favorites. Also, I'm a sucker for any Beauty and the Beast retelling, even though there's already tons of them out there!

  37. I just love fairy tales in general! I've read both her other tales, and loved them, but haven't gotten to this one yet...

    My most favorite fairy tale has always been The Twelve Dancing Princesses, so I'm always exited to see that one retold, but I would really like to see some of the more obscure Grimm's tales, like Jordan and Joringel (sp?) retold as well.

    Thanks for the contest!
