Retellings Reading Challenge: Third Quarter Update & Link-up

Happy September, bookworms! Welcome to the third quarter update and link-up of the 2019 Retellings Reading Challenge! I hope you've all made some progress and read some amazing retellings so far this year! As a reminder, this challenge is still open to join! To get started, I'll share my progress for this quarter:



This quarter I got quite a bit of reading done! The retelling mood struck and I couldn't stop! I read some big upcoming releases and some fun indie books, along with a couple I've been putting off for too long! My favorite of this quarter was definitely Wild Savage Stars!


In case you missed it, we also have a group on Goodreads where we discuss books we've been reading, share suggestions to fill bingo spaces, and do a group read each month. You can join the group HERE if you haven't already! Here's what we read in June, July, and August: 


Each month the group nominates a bingo topic to group read, then we nominate books based on that topic. Finally, we vote on which book to read and discuss throughout the month. For June, we voted to read The Golem and the Jinni to fill the Middle Eastern Mythology Retelling space. Circe was our July read and filled the Greek Mythology Retelling space. In August we read The Beholder to fill the 2019 release space. Voting is still open for September if you want to get involved!


Now it's your turn! Link up to your reviews for the challenge to get an extra entry in the year-end giveaway! As a reminder, you can also get extra entries for getting bingo or filling your bingo card completely. Do NOT share your quarterly updates in this link-up! This is for reviews only. Instead, share links to your updates in the comments!
