Fairy Tales Retold Challenge 2014

Now that I've got three challenges completed (and am getting near to completing some of the others), I decided to try a few more, including this one.  I decided to try for the second level, even though this is a new one to me.  I already know a few books I can read for this one.  Sign up for this one here.   Details copied from the blog below:

It’s here! The 2014 Fairy Tales Retold Reading Challenge is back in it’s third year! This year has been rough and I almost decided not to host it this year, but everything worked out! I’m looking forward to hosting the challenge this coming year, and I hope you guys all
Here are the details:
  • The challenge starts on January 1st 2014, and ends December 31st 2014
  • The goal of the read-a-thon is to read as many fairy tale retellings as possible.
  • There will be six different levels to aim for in this challenge:
    • Poor Cobbler: 1-3 books
    • Devilish Wolf: 4-6 books
      • Lady in Waiting: 7-9 books
      • Mountain Troll: 10-12 books
      • Evil Enchantress: 13-15 books
      • Monstrous Dragon: 16+ books
    • This challenge is only for Young Adult and Middle Grade retellings. No adult or children’s books count towards this challenge.
    • Because of confusion in the past, this year only straight retellings of fairy tales will count. No fairy tale-ish books, and no mythological or classic retellings.
    • Single novellas do not count towards this challenge, however a compilation of novellas or short stories can count towards this challenge.
    • Have fun and spread the word!
    I’ve tried to compile as thorough a list as possible of eligible books for this challenge, which can be found here. If you can think of any book(s) that may be missing, don’t hesitate to let me know!
    If you have any other questions or concerns, you can comment, email, or tweet, and I’ll do my best to get back to you.
    ***UPDATES 12/24/13***
    It has been decided that instead of monthly link-ups, there will be quarterly link-ups, which will take place in March, June, September, and December. All those who link up their reviews (whether they be from blogs, Goodreads, Amazon, etc.,) will be able to enter a giveaway, which will most likely feature an assortment of old and new releases!

    Here is what I am reading for this one:

    1. Cinder--Marissa Meyer
    2. Scarlet-Marissa Meyer
    3. Cinderella 2000--Mavis Jukes
    4. Ella Enchanted--Gail Carson Levine
    5. Fairest--Gail Carson Levine
