Fairytaleathon ‘Possibility Pile’ TBR

Photo by cottonbro on

Do I have time to squeeze in another readathon alongside last minute shopping and batch baking in December (or more likely binge-watching Netflix and popping Ferrero Rocher like grapes)?


Am I still going to plan out what I want to read for the #fairytaleathon prompts just in case (and because I do love a nice organised plan of attack)?


Read a fairytale or a retelling featuring royalty.

Gilded (Gilded #1) by Marissa Meyer

Read a book featuring winter or the Snow Queen.

Below by Alexandria Warwick or Ice by Sarah Beth Durst.

I have below on my kindle and Ice as a paperback so I can just pick whichever I’m more in the mood for. Below has wintery vibes, but I think only Ice is an actual retelling?

Read a book that has a flower on the cover.

House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland

Read a book with thievery.

Briar Girls by Rebecca Kim Wells

Read a fairytale that features children.

Ravenous by MarcyKate Connolly

Read a holiday book.

The Christmas Proposal by Lisa Moreau

Read a fariytale or a retelling that has a blue cover.

Tempest Cursed: A Wuthering Heights Retelling by K.C. Lannon

Read a fairytale or a retelling that’s been on your shelves forever.

The Cracked Slipper (The Cracked Slipper #1) by Stephanie Alexander

Read a book that was gifted to you.

These Violent Delights (These Violent Delights #1) by Chloe Gong

….Gifted by NetGalley to be honest, but I’m all for being flexible at this point in the year.

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

Read a book that reflects your mood.

I’ve got a TBR full of mystery novels for Cloak and Dagger Christmas already, so whichever one of those I happen to be in the mood for at some point can double for this prompt too.

Read a book that you have seen everywhere.

The Lion Above the Door by Onjali Q. Rauf

Not a retelling or a fairytale but I’m getting sort of magical vibes. I’ve seen this one on the centre display tables in Waterstones every time I’ve been in. I don’t know much about it, but I think it explores underrepresented voices and stories from WW2.

Read a fariytale or a retelling featuring a female main character.

This has got to be the easiest one to fill. Most of the retellings and fairy tales I’ve got lurking around have female protagonists so, again, I can just pick out one I’m drawn to in the moment.
