Waiting on Two and Twenty Dark Tales


Expected Publication: October 16

From Goodreads:
In this anthology, 20 authors explore the dark and hidden meanings behind some of the most beloved Mother Goose nursery rhymes through short story retellings. The dark twists on classic tales range from exploring whether Jack truly fell or if Jill pushed him instead to why Humpty Dumpty, fragile and alone, sat atop so high of a wall. The authors include Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leigh Fallon, Gretchen McNeil, and Suzanne Young.

I like retold fairy tales. I never even THOUGHT about retold NURSERY RHYMES!
Exciting.

    1. I did, thanks! I've been meaning to for awhile, but haven't had the time til yesterday. I was home with a fever so I had plenty of time to jazz it up!

  3. I got this on Netgalley, but just couldn't really get through it, and I was so excited about it! Like you I love retold fairy tales, and thought retold Nursery Rhymes sounded like so much fun! But the ones they used, at least the first few in the book, the ones I think should catch your attention, were not rhymes that I'd heard of, or the stories just didn't at all bring to mind those rhymes.

    1. I got it on NetGalley, too, but I had technology problems. I still haven't fixed them, so it's probably expired. I'm sorry to hear it was disappointing. Thanks for stopping by!
