  1. I haven’t read any of these books but I should since so many students love Rick Riordan. I am copying your titles down right now.

  12. I need to share this list with my coblogger, who loves mythology retellings. I’m intrigued about a few of these!

  13. Hi, Merin! This is an awesome list–I didn’t know All Our Pretty Songs was a mythological retelling! There are some others here I want to look into, too, so thanks for that! I also did retellings for my topic, though a bit more broad than yours–you can find it here, if you’re interested: https://betwixtthesepages.wordpress.com/2015/09/29/top-ten-tuesday/

  14. greatexhortations says:
