2016 Retellings Reading Challenge

The Challenge:
For readers to read retellings of stories we know well from their chosen level in 2016:
Easy: 1-4 retellings -my level
Medium: 5-8 retellings
Hard: 9-12 retellings
The Rules:
You must share your thoughts/reviews on the retellings you read for the book to count. You can post anywhere: your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, YouTube, Tumblr, etc.
Join whenever, but before 31st December 2016, obviously.
You can read any retellings you want, they do not need to be recent releases to count.
There won't be any giveaways, this challenge is just for fun!
Use the hashtag #RetellingsRC2016 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
I will also accept prequels/sequels - I.E. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige is a sequel series to The Wizard of Oz, and would 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.
To Sign Up:
Write a blog post or page/record a video about your participation in the challenge (if you're using Goodreads, Amazon, or any other platform that doesn't allow you to do this, in the link up below, just link to your public profile.)
If you wish, in that post/page/video you can compile a list of retellings that you hope to read and review for the challenge - but this isn't compulsory. Also, the titles you list do not have to be set in stone. If you'd like some inspiration, Goodreads has a number of lists on retellings you can browse.
Fill out the InLinkz form below. If you have a blog/channel, please make sure the link you add goes directly to your sign up post and has your blog/channel name as the title. If you're participating via Goodreads or Amazon, etc, as the title please put your "screename @ platform" - I.E. If I was participating via Goodreads, I would put "Jo @ Goodreads".
As you review the books, update the monthly link up pages with a link to your review.

My Level: Easy: 1-4 retellings
