This week's topic is:
A Fairytale Retold

My first thought for this was one of my favorite retellings ever, Heartless, but then I realized I already did that one last year, so I had to do a bit more searching. I decided to share two books, both of which only have a small handful of covers, and those two are Malice by Heather Walter and All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller. I really enjoyed both of these books when I read them, and Malice will probably end up on a best of list this year...

Malice by Heather Walter
Malice (Malice Duology #1)   Malice (Malice Duology, #1)

All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella's Stepmother by Danielle Teller
All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella's Stepmother   És ​boldogan éltek…

Cendrillon et moi : La belle-mère parle enfin   Er was eens iets anders

My choice(s):
I absolutely love the US edition of Malice, and I really love both the US and Hungarian editions of All the Ever Afters. Even the French one is pretty! 

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. I love all the covers on All The Ever Afters - they're so intricate!

  2. I really like the UK cover of Malice, but the US cover for All the Ever Afters. Lots of pretty covers here!
