The only one that comes to my mind at the moment is Ella Enchanted. Of course it's not the same as Cinderella but there are similarities.

Hi! Thanks for the giveaway!
My favorite retelling is Beastly by Alex Flinn. I loved the book. The movie wasn't as awesome though (but I still enjoyed it).

I have been hearing a lot about the many books that are coming out now that evidently are retelling of fairy tales, but I have not read one to my knowledge, if I have the fairytale was not recognizable as such by me :) I have read a lot of UF and of course those are generally based on myths about the supernatural, but who really knows :) Thanks for sharing today. I found your blog today over at Candace's Book Blog and am glad I did. I have signed up to follow and look forward to reading more of what you have to say. Thank you for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

I admit, I haven't read that many, so my choice would have to be "Just Ella" as I don't remember reading any other retellings of fairy tales right now (how sad is that).

Does The Iliad count if it's retold by the Danish writer Bent Haller? I just freaking LOVE that story. *O*

Hi! Thanks for the amazing giveaway! I've been wanting to read both these books very much! :)

I don't think I've read any modern retelling of fairy tales, but I have got two books which I will be reading very soon: Ash by Malinda Lo (a retelling of Cinderella) and Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon (a retelling of The Little Mermaid)!

"What is your favorite book retelling a fairy tale or a popular myth?"

There's a few that come to mind, like Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen" and the re-telling of it by Wendy Delsol in her books, Stork and her soon to be released Frost. Then there's also Beauty and the Beast in the modern re-telling from of the novel Beastly, which I've just recently read and absolutely loved. :)

I follow you through GCF - Susan Haugland. I've also tweeted and facebooked about this.

I'm not sure if I've read any fairy tale retellings or mythological.. hm. They're both pretty high up on my reading interests but I just haven't picked any up yet. Lord of the Rings, perhaps?

My fave myth retelling is probably Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, not only because I had fun reading but my friends liked it very much, too. It was fun discussing the plot and what-not with everyone pitching in. Hehe

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
