    Also by Gail Carson Levine- Ever, Fairest, Dave at Night, The Wish. (I would only recommend the first two, as they are the most like fairy taes.

    Margaret Peterson Haddix- Just Ella-- GREAT if you loved Ella Enchanted as much as I did!!!!

    Catherine Gilbert Murdock --- Princess Ben --- SO amzing! Sort of a mix of a bunch of fairy tales. My 2nd favorite book ever (1st is Ella)

    Shannon Hale--- Princess Academy, the Goose Girl... anything else by her, really. They are all fairy tales.

    Other authors who write a lot of fairy tales are Robin McKinley and Donna Jo Napoli.

    If you like fairy tales and books like this, go to It has all the fairy tales, plus news on new renditions of them! I go there all the time!


    A Kiss in Time- Alex Flinn

    Beastly - Alex Flinn

    The Once Upon a Time Series - Various authors (Cameron Dokey, Suzzane Weyn, Debbie Viguie)

    Wildwood Dancing - Juliet Marillier (My 3rd favorite! Based on 12 Dancing Princesses)

    Sun adn Moon, Ice and Snow- Jessica Day George (SO amazing!)

    Now this one isn't really fairy based, but if you liked any of these like I did, then you'll probably like this

    Aurelia- Anne Osterlund

    The Season - Sarah MacLean

    OH! And then there's Heather Tomlinson. She wrote The Swan Maiden and Aurelie, two of my other favorite books ever!!!!!

    Source(s): I LOVE all these books!
