Anyone whose read my blog before knows how much I adore fairy tales. I grew up being surrounded by fairy tales, and I completely adore retellings. They expand upon details your heart has been aching to know about. They explain why characters act as they do, and they add unique twists that make you adore (or loathe) the stories even more.
I've been searching around the blogosphere for a fairy tale challenge, but I haven't found one, so I decided to take it into my own hands and come up with my own fairy tale challenge. The only real rule is to have fun with fairy tales, but here are some other things that would be nice to know:
It goes from January 1st 2012 to December 31st 2012
To sign up, use the form at the end of this post!
You can sign up any time from now until June-ish
I would love you forever if you would follow me, and if you're interested in fairy tales, then you'd probably find my blog interesting anyway!
Any retelling at all, or original fairy tales. When I say original fairy tales, I mean books that include many elements of many fairy tales, but aren't actually based on any fairy tales. Some examples are The Princess Bride by William Goldman or Princess Academy by Shannon Hale (BEST BOOK EVER!) Basically a book that should have a fairy tale based on it, but it's too late for it to be the other way around.
All you need is a desire to read fairy tales, and preferably a way to post reviews. Whether it be a blog, Goodreads, or Amazon, it doesn't matter.
3 books - Peasant
6 books - Fairy
9 Books - Witch
12 books - Princess
15 books - Dragon
I'm going for Dragon level, and I'll probably end up reading way more than 15 anyway.
At the end of each month I'll have a link-up post for any reviews you've done that month. No one is required to post reviews, I just want to see what you think!
So go ahead and sign up! If you have any more questions, let me know!
