Armchair BEA: Genre Fiction


The genre that I return to over and over again is fantasy. In middle school I started out with Anne McCaffrey and moved on to Tolkien, but my taste in fantasy has varied over the years. I tend to like the high fantasy and especially the fantasy with a bit of fairy tale. Some of my all time favorite fairy tale retellings are:

Cinder
Beauty
Spindle's End
East
The Frog Princess
Deerskin
Rapunzel's Revenge
A Tale Dark and Grimm
The Goose Girl
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow
The Stinky Cheese Man
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
Beastly
Ash
Ice
The Paper Bag Princess
Lon Po Po
Cinderella Skeleton
Breadcrumbs
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
The Princess Curse
Tattercoats
Book of a Thousand Days
Wildwood Dancing
Ella
Just Ella
Enchantment

What genre pulls you in and enchants you?

    1. I don't think of myself as a historical fiction fan, but when I look over what I read, I do read a lot of it. I enjoy learning about the past while I read like with the slave revolts of In Darkness.
