#ARC #Monday #16: #Review of Rags & Bones: New Twists on Timeless Tales by @melissa_marr

Welcome to my #16 posting of ARC Mondays!  This week the winner was Rags and Bones!  I have to say I was very lucky that not only did I have an ARC of this one but I had found a finished copy to!  So I got to read this in finished copy. 
 

The best writers of our generation retell the classics.

From Sir Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queen to E.M. Forster's "The Machine Stops," literature is filled with sexy, deadly, and downright twisted tales. In this collection, award-winning and bestselling authors reimagine their favorite classic stories, the ones that have inspired, awed, and enraged them, the ones that have become ingrained in modern culture, and the ones that have been too long overlooked. They take these stories and boil them down to their bones, and then reassemble them for a new generation of young adult readers. 

Written from a twenty-first century perspective and set within the realms of science fiction, dystopian fiction, fantasy and realistic fiction, these short stories are as moving and thought provoking as their originators. They pay homage to groundbreaking literary achievements of the past while celebrating each author's unique perception and innovative style.

About the Authors





I have been so wanting to read this since a friend said it was to die for.  But for me I just couldn't get into it.  I tried so hard.  I didnt find one story that kept my attention and drew me in (Sad face)
