Mel at The Daily Prophecy has been hosting this challenge for a while, but last year I was too late to sign up. I will not miss it again! Not only do I love Mel’s writing about books, her bingo cards, challenges, and other posts, I also owe her my gorgeous copy of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted which I won in one of her givaways. Thanks again, Mel!
(Fairy Tale) Retelling Challenge – Level: Goose Girl
If you don’t like fairy tale retellings, other retellings are also allowed – mythology, folklore, classics, and so on.
For what is probably the first time ever, I resisted the urge to aim for the highest goal (or the coolest sounding level) and went for something realistic. Here are the challenge leves (from Mel’s blog):
There are 6 different levels you can aim for:
-Enchanted Moura: 1 – 4 books.
-Goose Girl: 5 – 9 books.
-Evil Queen: 10 – 15 books.
-Wise princess: 16 – 20 books.
-Kuma Lisa: 21 – 25 books.
-Cheshire cat: 26+ books
See? I’m reasonable for once. I totally wanted to go for Cheshire Cat because it’s the highest level and also IT’S CALLED CHESHIRE CAT! Don’t ask me how I resisted, but for 2016, I shall simply be the Goose Girl.
And because no sign-up post is much fun without a list of some sort that I create with great care and thought only to dismiss once the year has arrived, here are some books I plan to read for the challenge:
