Retell-A-Thon & My TBR

So I’m attempting another Read-A-Thon with a much smaller amount of books to read! I think I have a much better chance of actually completing this one! Wish me luck please!

This read-a-thon focuses on retellings/reimaginings of fairy tales, folklore, & other literary classics. Retell-A-Thon is being hosted by these lovely people: Read By Liv, Lea Bex, Wilde Book Garden, Common Spence, and Mikayla.

Here are the challenges:

1. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT – Read a retelling of your favorite fairy tale
2. TRUE LOVE’S TWIST – Read a queer or genderflipped retelling
3. FARAWAY KINGDOM – Read a retelling of a fairy tale from your heritage
4. UNDER A SPELL – Read the group book: The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
5. UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER – Read a retelling with a dark twist (e.g. with an unhappy ending or told from the villains point of view)

And here’s my TBR!

#1 – Hunted by Meagan Spooner: A retelling of Beauty & The Beast, one of my favorite fairy tales.

#2 + #3 – Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust: A retelling of Snow White with a F/F relationship. A German fairy tale by the most famous fairy tale boys, The Grimm Bros, which just so happens to be my heritage.

#4 – The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill: Group read / retelling of The Little Mermaid

#5 – Now I Rise by Kiersten White: A dark reimagining of Vlad the Impaler as Lada the Impaler. (could also work for #3)
