A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When Fayre kills a fae disguised as a wolf in the woods near her home, she is forced to leave the mortal realm behind forever and live out the rest of her life with the Fae as retribution. As she experiences the wonders of this dangerous, beautiful world and grows ever closer with Tamlin, her captor and one of the High Fae, she soon discovers that a dark, wicked force is threatening both realms--and she must find a way to stop it.

The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine

In her second novel, Valentine blends fairy tale with historical fiction by retelling Grimm’s “The Twelve Dancing Princesses,” setting it in the Roaring Twenties. During the day, the Hamilton sisters are shut up in the top story of their father’s house. Ashamed of having twelve daughters and no sons, their father hides them while he waits to marry them off to advantageous matches. Some nights the girls sneak out to dance at various speakeasies around Manhattan.

Maleficent by Elizabeth Runick

And her name was Maleficent…   This is actually the thinly-veiled story of Sleeping Beauty told from Maleficent’s point of view.  Beginning with her idyllic childhood in the Moors, this story continues with her crush on Stefan and how he becomes king by betraying her, and then the curse she puts on his child, Aurora.
