Disney movies meet your TBR pile as we show you books that remind us of these timeless Disney classics!
Aladdin → We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
An epic fantasy inspired by Arabia is just the book you need to reminisce Aladdin’s adventures with Jasmine! We Hunt the Flame is not yet out in shelves but will be released on the 14th of May.
The Lion King → Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
We know, we know. That scene from Mufasa is a total tear-jerker. But once you read Ash Princess, you’ll be crying for all the different reasons. Kept captive in her country where the enemy rules, Theodosia must find a way to reclaim her throne.
Treasure Planet → The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
If you’re still craving adventure after the amazing treasure hunt by Treasure Planet, try picking up The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue which takes treasure hunting back to Earth but contains all the excitement as if it were in space.
Mulan → The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
Avoid dishonor on you and your cow by reading The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. It features a story of China that mixes fantasy with history.
Ratatouille → The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Can’t stop thinking about Paris? If you want to see more of the city of lights after watching Ratatouille, try picking up The Gilded Wolves! Set in 19th century Paris, readers are thrust into a hunt they never imagined.
Hercules → The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Does Greek hero Hercules remind anyone of Achilles? Well, we think so! Featured in this award-winning story, The Song of Achilles is guaranteed to continue that Greek-centered high.
Tangled → Cress by Marissa Meyer
We promise, Cress is just as charming as Rapunzel in Marissa Meyer’s Cress. Although third in The Lunar Chronicles, this book is the best out of the four which all feature retellings of Disney princesses. See this as Book Allure’s personal recommendation. 😉
Snow White → Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust
Snow White is retold with a different mother-daughter dynamic in Girls Made of Snow and Glass. This story is heavy on family and self-discovery and is perfect for those who love the fair-skinned classic!
The Little Mermaid → To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Kate @ The Backwards Bookshelf was right when she said To Kill a Kingdom is the book counterpart of the film, The Little Mermaid. Except, what happens when Ursula also happens to be Ariel’s mom?
Alice in Wonderland → The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
Suggested by Shealea, this urban fantasy even uses Alice’s name! This elevates the fairytale of Alice in Wonderland to new heights with more at stake.
