2019 Retellings Reading Challenge

Hi everyone! I'm back to challenge hosting for 2019 after a year off. This year I'm so excited to be hosting a challenge based on my absolute favorite genre, retellings. Although my favorite retellings are based on fairy tales, there are amazing retellings from all kinds of classic stories and this challenge celebrates all of them! This challenge will include monthly group reads and retelling bingo!

  • This challenge will run from January 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019.
  • Books must be read and reviewed in 2019. (You don't have to review books to count towards your goal, but you do have to review them if you want them to count as giveaway entries.)
  • Audiobooks, e-books, re-reads, short stories, novellas, and graphic novels all count, and you can read adult, YA, and middle grade books for this challenge.
  • It's also totally fine to use books from this challenge to fulfill other reading challenges and vice versa. 
  • ALL retellings count! 
  • You don't have to be a book blogger to participate! You can link up and track your progress on Goodreads, Instagram, Youtube, or wherever you share books!
  • Sign up below with your post, shelf, etc. and leave a comment letting me know what your personal goal is. 
  • Link up your reviews each quarter on the post provided! (Bookmark this page to make sure you don't miss a link-up!) 

  • Silent Assassin: 1-5 Retellings
  • Warrior Princess: 6-10 Retellings
  • Elemental Witch: 11-15 Retellings
  • High Fae: 16-20 Retellings
  • Fairest of them All: 21-25+ Retellings

  • Each block describes a book or type of retelling. For example, "Bronte or Austen" means that you can read a retelling of a book by one of the Bronte sisters or Jane Austen to complete that category. "Debut author" means that you can read any author's debut book. 
  • Getting BINGO (making a line vertically, horizontally, or diagonally on the card) will get you an additional 5 entries in the end of year giveaway!
  • If you get a Bingo blackout (filling the entire card), you get an additional 10 entries in the giveaway! 
  • Right click to save the card to your computer!

  • The Goodreads group can be located HERE!
  • We will have monthly group reads (as long as they go well) and suggestion threads to help complete bingo categories. 

  • Link-ups will be posted here each quarter for you to share your reviews!
  • Each linked review will count as an extra extra entry in the end of year giveaway.
  • Giveaway will be included in the fourth quarter update.
