(Fairytale) Retelling reading challenge 2015

I got into this reading challenge a little late last year, and finished in about two moths.  So I decided to try it again.  Note that the hosting blog has changed this year. Sign up at the new host, Daily Prophecy at this link.  I will start at the Prince Charming Level, and see if I can go over.

The Daily Prophecy

Yes, this is happening! I contacted Debz Bookshelf (who hosted this challenge for three years) if it was okay to take it over. I’ve never hosted a reading challenge before, so it’s all new for me and I will try to make it as fun as possible! Here are the details:
  • The challenge runs from January 1st – December 31st 2015.

  • The goal is to read fairytale retellings, but if you want you can also pick other retellings. It’s up to you what you count as a fairytale. Here are a couple of books you can pick from:my bookshelf with fairytale retellings and Fairytale lists on Listopia. You can read Middle Grade, Young Adult and Adult books for this challenge. Obviously, the book doesn't have to be published in 2015 and re-reads count.
  • There are 6 different levels you can aim for:
    -Prince Charming: 1 – 4 books.
    -Magic mirror: 5 - 9 books.
    -Big bad wolf: 10 – 15 books.
    -The wise princess: 16 – 20 books.
    -Wicked fairy Godmother: 21 – 25 books.
    -Bluebeard: you are killing it! 26+ books.
  • Every beginning of the month I will make a link-up post where you put all your reviews in and they will have fun/informative introductions.
  • It’s not a promise, but there might be challenges.
  • Most important thing: HAVE FUN and spread the word :) Let's tweet with: #fairytaleRC
You can join until December 31st 2014. Please add links to your introduction post/challenge page instead of a general link to your blog.
