Retellings Hot for YA Lit

Retellings have been popular for quite some time. We need look no further than much of what is coming out of Hollywood to know this is true with movies. According to this post, it’s true for books as well, especially YA literature. Marissa Meyer’s debut novel Cinder, is an ultra-modern/futuristic and feminist retelling of Cinderella. The book is also the first in a series, The Lunar Chronicles, which retells other similar fairy tales. Have you read a retelling lately? What was it and what did you think?
