2020 Retellings Reading Challenge

Hi everyone! The Retellings Reading Challenge is back for another year and I'm so excited to be doing this all again! Last year the challenge pushed participants to read retellings they may never have discovered and this year we're back with an all new BINGO card full of new prompts!

  • This challenge will run from January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020.
  • Books must be read and reviewed in 2020. (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, "POC author" means that you can read any retelling written by an author of color to complete that category. "Edgar Allen Poe" means that you can read a retelling of any Poe work. 
  • 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 and suggestion threads to help complete bingo categories. 

  • Link-ups will be posted here at the beginning of each quarter for you to share your reviews!
  • Come back throughout the quarter to link up your reviews. 
  • Each linked review will count as an extra extra entry in the end of year giveaway.
  • Giveaway will be posted in December 2020. 

  • This year we will have an email list to send out reminders and updates!
  • Emails will only be sent once a quarter with updates and reminders to link up.
  • Sign up HERE if you don't want to miss any link-ups or giveaways!
