In planning ahead for some fun stuff to do on my blog for 2016, I came across this challenge hosted by Mel at The Daily Prophecy . I just recently started following her blog and I love Mel’s posts about books, her bingo cards, challenges, and she seems to have a few giveways going on too, so feel free to check out her blog if you haven’t already.
Level I’m Aiming For:
Retelling Challenge 2016
If you don’t like fairy tale retellings, other retellings are also allowed – mythology, folklore, classics, and so on.
Since this is my first time doing this challenge, and since the few retellings I have read aren’t super interesting, I am going to reign myself in and not try for the highest level. Plus, I want to aim for an average of maximum two retellings per month so as to have time for other books.
Here are the challenge levels (from Mel’s blog):
There are 6 different levels you can aim for:
-Enchanted Moura: 1 – 4 books.Retelling Challenge Goose Girl
-Goose Girl: 5 – 9 books.
-Evil Queen: 10 – 15 books.
-Wise princess: 16 – 20 books.
-Kuma Lisa: 21 – 25 books.
-Cheshire cat: 26+ books
I think I will be able to read 21 – 25 retellings quite easily if I pace myself because they can get a bit much after a time which is why I have chosen a mixture of retellings.
Here are the books I plan to read for this challenge. As usual, I may deviate, if a new release pops up or I come across one that I just can’t resist, or simply because I hate rigidity! 🙂
That’s it for the Retelling Challenge 2016! I will also be joining the Goodreads Reading Challenge. Which challenges are you planning to take part in ?
