Do I have time to squeeze in another readathon alongside last minute shopping and batch baking in December (or more likely binge-watching Netflix and popping Ferrero Rocher like grapes)?
Am I still going to plan out what I want to read for the #fairytaleathon prompts just in case (and because I do love a nice organised plan of attack)?
Read a fairytale or a retelling featuring royalty.
Gilded (Gilded #1) by Marissa Meyer
Read a book featuring winter or the Snow Queen.
Read a book that has a flower on the cover.
House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland
Read a book with thievery.
Briar Girls by Rebecca Kim Wells
Read a fairytale that features children.
Ravenous by MarcyKate Connolly
Read a holiday book.
The Christmas Proposal by Lisa Moreau
Read a fariytale or a retelling that has a blue cover.
Tempest Cursed: A Wuthering Heights Retelling by K.C. Lannon
Read a fairytale or a retelling that’s been on your shelves forever.
The Cracked Slipper (The Cracked Slipper #1) by Stephanie Alexander
Read a book that was gifted to you.
These Violent Delights (These Violent Delights #1) by Chloe Gong
….Gifted by NetGalley to be honest, but I’m all for being flexible at this point in the year.
Read a book that reflects your mood.
I’ve got a TBR full of mystery novels for Cloak and Dagger Christmas already, so whichever one of those I happen to be in the mood for at some point can double for this prompt too.
Read a book that you have seen everywhere.
The Lion Above the Door by Onjali Q. Rauf
Not a retelling or a fairytale but I’m getting sort of magical vibes. I’ve seen this one on the centre display tables in Waterstones every time I’ve been in. I don’t know much about it, but I think it explores underrepresented voices and stories from WW2.
Read a fariytale or a retelling featuring a female main character.
This has got to be the easiest one to fill. Most of the retellings and fairy tales I’ve got lurking around have female protagonists so, again, I can just pick out one I’m drawn to in the moment.
