Aladdin Retellings


Welcome back to my classics and fairy tale retellings!

Moving on through the 90s films, I am here with a shorter post focusing on Aladdin or the original A Thousand and One Nights. For this one, I have decided to showcase the original story too because it is one that is getting more recognition. There might not be as many books as in past posts but these are all books that deserve some love.

(although I’m not completely sure if this is one or not)

Surprisingly enough, I have even read 4 out the 6 books here. Well, it’s really 3 and a half because I personally couldn’t get through A Thousand Nights due to the writing style. I can see why a lot of people love it though.

Do you know of any other retellings that deserve some more recognition?

Thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!

  1. I think my top book from this list is Rebel of the Sands. It was really surprising and surpassed any of my expectations. I still haven’t picked up Traitor to the Throne yet though, which is pretty high up on my tbr.


  2. Great post! We love the Disney’s Aladdin movies, so we are definitely going to be adding some of these books to our TBR! And we really liked The Wrath & The Dawn, but we haven’t read the sequel yet!

    1. Thank you.

      I like the premise of the story but Disney’s film and the sequels were never ones I could get into. I really love the soundtrack though, especially from the stage musical!

      I really loved the Wrath and the Dawn too and the sequel was just as good! Hope you enjoy it when you finally get around to reading it.
