classic retellings booklist: a new twist on an old tale

I've been putting together a YA book display at the library of classic retellings, and thought I would share the list here. I had intended to put pictures and summaries, but the list is long so you just get links to goodreads.

Most are young adult, some are a little younger, some a little older.

This is a work in progress, one I'm going to keep updating as I find new books to add, so if I'm missing some please put them in the comments!
