I love Disney. To everyone who knows me, this is neither new nor unsurprising news. In fact, this statement would probably cause an eye roll and a sarcastic ‘Yes Ellie, we know.’
But, still Disney is pretty damn awesome. And I’ve never been ashamed to say that i’m obsessed. It’s just so magical; I can’t help but smile and sing along.
So as you can probably imagine, I like to read things that are based off of fairy-tales and disney stories. So, for your reading pleasure, here are some of my favourites…
You can’t make a Disney reading list without having Peter Pan on it. Peter Pan has always been one of my favourite disney characters and so it was almost a given that this would be one of the first books I ever read. He’s just so cheeky and cute!
2. Alice’s adventures in Wonderland
Another pure disney book that I adore. If you haven’t read it but enjoy the movie I highly recommend.
3. Disney after Dark series
Slightly different to the others on the list as it is not based off of a disney movie, nor has a Disney movie been based off of it. Rather, it is about a group of teenagers who work at Disney World and their adventures. It’s kinda awesome.
A modern retelling of the classic ‘Beauty and the Beast’. It’s also a pretty good movie with Vanessa Hudgens.
5. Snow White and the Huntsman
A modern take on the original disney feature.
Creepy retelling of Hansel and Gretel. As a thirteen year old, it actually scared me a lot considering it’s based off a fairytale. All of Jackson Pearce’s books are stand alone so that’s why they’re all on here individually.
The steal nymph Lo has to steal the soul of a human boy to retrieve her humanity. Yup, a little different from ‘The Little Mermaid’.
– Jackson Pearce
Badass retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Seriously, ‘Little red’ is a far cry from the traditional character.
9. The complete Grimm’s fairy tales
The original stories of so many of the Disney movies. Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping beauty included.
10. The complete fairy tales
-Hans Christian Anderson
The author of the Snow Queen aka. the one and only Frozen.
As an extra, if you’re a fan of all things disney then you should check out Once Upon A Time. It’s literally based in a town called Storybrooke that is full of Disney characters…
