Retellings Reading Challenge 2017

Once Again I'll be participating in the Fairy Tale Retellings Challenge.  I love this one. I will once again try to get at least 12 books. Sign up at the link above.

Retellings Reading Challenge 2017

The Retellings Reading Challenge is back again for 2017, and this time it's bigger and better! Thanks to a lovely bunch of publishers, this year's challenge will come with monthly giveaways*!The Challenge:

  • For readers to read retellings of stories we know well from their chosen level in 2016:
    • Easy: 1-4 retellings
    • Medium: 5-8 retellings
    • Hard: 9-12 retellings
    • Difficult: 12+ retellings
The Rules:

  • You must sign up to the challenge below.
  • You must share your thoughts/reviews on the retellings you read for the book to count. You can post anywhere: your blog, YouTube, Instagram, Goodreads, Amazon, Tumblr, etc.
  • As you review the books, update the monthly link up post with a link to your review. This is important, as each book you review will be an entry into that month's giveaway.
  • You can sign up any time between now and 31st December 2017.
  • Use the hashtag #RetellingsRC2017 so we can follow your participation in the challenge!
Which Books Count:

  • You can read retellings of any of the following (if I've left anything out, please let me know!):
    • Classics & Children's Classics
    • Fairy Tales
    • Myths and Legends
    • Folk Tales
    • Retellings of real, well known people's lives - I.E. Becoming Jane by Kevin Hood about a young Jane Austen, and And I Darken by Kirsten White, a gender bent retelling of Vald Dracul's teen years, both count 
    • I will also accept origin stories/prequels/sequels - I.E. Dorothy Must Die series by Danielle Paige is a sequel series to The Wizard of Oz,Heartless by Marissa Meyer is a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the origin story of the Queen of Hearts, and both would count.
    • I will also accept books that feature fictional characters/real people as a prominent main character (not a secondary character, so think love interest, etc.), but aren't necessarily strict retellings/prequels/sequels - I.E. The Night Prince series by Jeaniene Frost is a present day urban fantasy/paranormal romance that features Vlad Dracul, and so would count.
  • You can read any retellings you want, they do not need to be recent releases to count.
  • Feel free to re-read any retellings! They will also count, as long as you review them somewhere.
  • All age categories are accepted; middle grade/young fiction, YA, NA, adult.
  • All books count; physical books, audiobooks, eBooks.
  • ARCs/Proofs count, as do self-published books.
