Happy Tuesday! Today is a freebie theme for Top Ten Tuesday, meaning we can talk about whatever we want. One of my favorite things to talk about is the fairy tale of Cinderella (I even collect versions of it from different countries/cultures), and one of my favorite things to read is a book that either retells the Cinderella story or is inspired by in it in some way. So this week, I’m talking about – you guessed it – Cinderella stories. Some I’ve read (and loved!), some haven’t been released yet, and some are still on my TBR list.
