New List and some Additions

There is one new list today and additions to four old lists. The new list is fairy tales told in new ways or with a twist. Some of them are novels and some are picture books, and not all are children’s books. I have read most of the books currently on the list, but not all. And I didn’t like them all. Any that I have a review up for will have a link to the review soon. As always, suggestions are welcome!
