10 Retellings I will definitely (probably) be reading in 2017

Something you guys MIGHT know about me is that I am obsessed with retellings. I love them. I think they're the greatest genre (is it a genre?) ever to be written. I have very rarely met a retelling I didn't love and these are the top ten that I'm really hoping I get to in 2017: 

Peter PanLost Girl by Chanda Hahn
BlackbeardBlackhearts by Nicole Castroman
RumpelstiltskinThe Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine
The Little MermaidDrown by Esther Dalseno
Beauty and the Beast Hunted by Meagan Spooner
One Thousand and One NightsA Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston
Vlad (Lada) the ImpalerNow I Rise by Kiersten White
Beauty and the BeastOf Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
PersuasionFor Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
FrankensteinSuch Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel

My favorite retellings are usually Beauty and the Beast and Peter Pan, so it shouldn't be any surprise that there are a couple on this list! I've also never read a retelling of The Little Mermaid and the cover of Drown is gorgeous so I'm looking to get my hands on that one ASAP! And I'll admit, I've never read Persuasion, I don't know anything about Blackbeard, and I didn't know much about the historical Vlad the Impaler before reading And I Darken, but I'm excited for each of these retellings anyway!

Have you read any of these? Did you love or hate them? 
Are any of my list on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!
