#5OnMyTBR – Retelling

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!


Hello, reader!

Welcome to March! I do love when a month begins on a Monday. I don’t know why, it just feels ✨right✨. Today, I’m doing another 5 On My TBR because there was no way I was skipping this week’s theme. Why? Because we’ll be discussing five retellings on my to be read pile! I love retellings! It’s probably my second favorite trope after books about books. That means that I have tons to choose from, lol. After shifting through my TBR, though, I’ve picked out the five that I’m the most eager to read.


#1. The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

This is a retelling of One Thousand and One Nights that I’ve been eager to read for quite some time. I’ve read one book from this author before that I really loved and I love the concept of this! A woman that is seeking revenge on a prince and keeps in his good graces by telling him stories every night. It sounds like it’s going to be an intense time and I can’t wait!

#2. Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim

I’ve recently discovered that The Count of Monte Cristo is, perhaps, my favorite classic that I’ve ever read. So, when you pitch me a Monte Cristo retelling that stars a woman and is sapphic, you know I’m going to want to read it! This book sounds incredible! I know the sequel is set to come out this year, as well, so I now I can pick it up without having to worry about waiting too long for the conclusion. Give me all the revenge plots, yas!
