2020 Retellings Challenge Third Quarter Update

Hi, bookworms! Welcome to the (very late) second quarter update and link-up of the 2020 Retellings Reading Challenge! I hope you've all made some great 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 read a bit less than I'd like in the way of retellings, but I really enjoyed what I did read! First was Midnight Sun, which I'm calling a retelling because it's literally Twilight retold. You can find my review here! Next was Into the Heartless Wood, a genderbent Beauty and the Beast retelling that was INCREDIBLE! Review will be posted closer to the release date but trust me, it was amazing.


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 August and September:


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 August, we voted to read The Guinevere Deception to fill the King Arthur retelling space. Cinderella Is Dead was our September read and filled the Own Voices retelling space. In October we are reading The Raven's Tale as our spooky month Edgar Allen Poe retelling!


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!
