Fairy Tale and Myth Retelling Challenge


This looks fun! I’m a bit late to the party, but the idea is to read as many fairy tales and mythology retellings as you can within a year and write reviews to them each month.

Here’s the rules…. the official sign up is here: http://anarmchairbythesea.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/announcing-telling-tales-challenge-2013.html

The challenge runs from January 1st, 2013 to December 31st, 2013. You can sign up at any point throughout the year.
Again, any genre counts as long as it is in some way related to fairytale and/or mythology. Once again, if you are unsure, as long as you can make an argument for its’ inclusion, it counts!
Re-reads count, and you are more than welcome to overlap books with other challenges.
Please leave me your email address in the comments if you want to participate (I promise not to harrass you, it’s just so that people get a reminder every now and again about the monthly link ups, and also so I can contact you for competitions etc).
Please link up your reviews every month in the posts which will go up on this blog.
In your sign up post, please indicate the level you aim to complete. You are entirely welcome to change this as the year progresses. You can make your lists beforehand, or as you go. Whichever you prefer!
When you sign up, please leave the link to your sign up post, rather than just to your blog in general.
You don’t have to have a blog to participate – you can review on Goodreads, Amazon, wherever, just let me know where you will be reviewing!
That’s it!

The levels are as follows:

Pixie – read 2 books
Troll under the Bridge – read 5 books
Princess – read 10 books
Prince Charming – read 15 books
Evil Queen – read 20 books
Dragon – read 30 books
King/Queen of the Silver Screen – read any number of books and watch the film adaptations


I’m going for Princess level. My first book will be Persephone’s Orchard and that review will be posted this Thursday 🙂
