If you’ve had a look at my 2019 Reading Goals post, you might have noticed that I’ve signed up to take part in Cornerfolds’ Retellings Reading Challenge this year. I saw the challenge, and with how much I adore retellings, I knew I had to join in but I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to read. My TBRs are always way off during monthly readathons, so I knew a year-long TBR would be impractical. Instead, I’ve put together all my ideas for each prompt, along with some recommendations of books I’ve enjoyed and think might fit.
Obviously, these could all change. Plus, the Goodreads group is going to have monthly group reads to vote on. So for those 12 books (whatever they end up being), I might just go with the group choice if I’m interested enough.
I hope that, if you’re tempted by this challenge, these might help you fill some of your prompts, and if you’re not doing the challenge, you might just spot some interesting looking retellings to try anyway.
## signifies a book I’ve already read. If I’ve reviewed it, this will link to the review. This is by no means an exhaustive list, just ones I’ve read or am considering reading. Any questions, let me know! If you’ve read any of the ones I haven’t – or have any other ideas – please let me know that too! There were a couple of prompts I really struggled to find a lot for – especially Native American and Egyptian Mythology. I think I have something picked for both, but I’d love more suggestions.
The book I’m leaning towards for each prompt — knowing that my TBRs never stay remotely on track — are in bold.
