Retellings Reading Challenge 2017

Retellings Reading Challenge 2017

Obviously, I’m a big fan of retellings, so since one challenge is finished, why not start another? There’s still plenty on my TBR. I’ll be aiming to read at least one a month, probably picking them from this list.

    Thanks for signing up to the Retellings Reading Challenge 2017! I think I’m going to have to look up some of the titles you have down for the challenge, and for the #12DaysofDiversity – I didn’t know some of those books were retellings! More books to discover! 🙂

    Good luck with the challenge!

    (You do need to link to the challenge, however. If you could make the graphic or even the name above it a link to the sign-up page, that would be awesome. Thanks!)

      Oops! That’s the image linked up now 😊

      There’s so many awesome sounding retellings available, and so much variety. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone ends up reading over the year. My TBR will probably end up even longer 😆
