2013 Fairy Tales Retold Reading Challenge

2013 Fairy Tales Retold Reading Challenge


Have you heard the news? The Fairy Tales Retold Challenge is coming back! And this year it's gonna be a whole lot better! Last year I was a horrible host, but I had fun nonetheless. This year I'm hoping to be a whole lot more involved, with mini-challenges, discussion posts, giveaways, and much more!

Here are the deets:
  • The challenge starts on January 1st, and ends December 31st
  • The goal of the read-a-thon is to read as many fairy tale retellings as possible. These are the different levels:
    • Cobbler: 1-3 books
    • Lady in Waiting: 4-6 books
    • Fierce Ogre: 7-9 books
    • Damsel in Distress: 10-12 books
    • Evil Enchantress: 13-15 books
    • Great and Terrible Beast: 16+ books
  • This challenge is only for Young Adult and Middle Grade retellings. No adult or picture books count towards this challenge.
  • Both straight retellings and “original” fairy tales count. As long as you think it counts as an “original” fairy tale, then it counts!
  • Have fun and spread the word!
And since I love you so much, here’s a premade post you just need to copy, paste and tweak to fit your individual goals. 

My Level and Books:

Cobbler: 1-3 books

Duckling Ugly (Dark Fusion #3) by Neal Shusterman 
The Ugly Duckling by Iris Johansen
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
