Diane | 1231 comments Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had a great 2017 and are welcoming 2018 with open pages.
The first quarter challenge - Everything Old is New Again- runs from January 1st to March 31st.
The idea is to take something old and familiar and make it new by diving into the retelling of classics or fairy tales.

Want to be a reading ROCK STAR? Read both the original version AND the Retelling! But that is just an extra fun goal (icing on the cake if you will) and is no way necessary for participation.

Rules breakdown:
♦ Audio books are allowed.

♦ All of the books MUST be at least 150 (paper) pages in order to qualify for this challenge. If the kindle or eBook pages are different than the paper count, please provide the correct number, so no books are left out unjustly. If you are reading an ebook only book, the word count MUST be a minimum of 45,000.

♦ 5 out of 6 of your books for this challenge must be YA. (If you want to read the originals or keep going after your first round, though, all books from all age levels are accepted. )



I'll be keeping track of participant’s progress (as much as possible) in post #2. Participants will be listed alphabetically by their name and the number of their original post in the challenge.

When posting your progress, please remember to use the number attached to your original post as well. (This will be especially useful to save me from mixing up folks with similar names).
When posting the Title of your book let us know what it was a retelling of.
It is also nice, but not necessary, to tell us what you thought of the book just in case i grabs the interest of another member also.

Looking for ideas? you can try this list:

Good Luck welcoming in the New Year!

There are other similar lists if you look through the lists in the browse section. I assumed there would be plenty of crossovers so only posted two. Another thought for getting ideas. if you have a classic you love (or are just interested in) you could look up retellings specifically for that book.

Super excited to see reviews come in from y'all on other retellings. It's been a while since I've branched out, since I've been playing catch up with a lot of the series I'm behind in.

Also, related! I wrote a retelling, so if anyone wants a free copy for this challenge, let me know! I won't shamelessly self-promote again. I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good.

Diane | 1231 comments Good luck with this challenge Mich - you do have a couple of good ones here so maybe that will inspire you.


message 18: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 375 comments Question:
Does this book Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1) by Kendare Blake count since it's about Greek mythology...not exactly a retelling, but more of a continuation of their story, sort of...???


message 19: by Diane (new)

Diane | 1231 comments yeah, that goes with the spirit of the theme.


message 20: by Casey (last edited Jan 06, 2018 08:38PM) (new)

Casey Anderson | 637 comments Love this! I totally failed on the last challenge, which is usually my favorite. I just haven't been into reading much lately. But, I finally finished La Belle Sauvage, and I love rfairy tale/classic retellings.
Does this one work: Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills is kinda a modern retelling of A MidSummer Nights Dream

I think that would be fine


message 23: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 375 comments I finished my first one Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1) by Kendare Blake which is about the Greek gods/goddesses also features Cassandra of Troy which was fun. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I would probably give it a 3.5-4...not sure yet. But it was an enjoyable read. I enjoyed her take on how the gods were doing now since no one really worships them anymore and they're all but forgotten, and now they're dying...

P.S. I updated post #6

Candice (locomonobano) | 78 comments Finished Spindle by Shonna Slayton , book #1
I can't update much from my phone so I'll do that later.
But I wanted to say I found it pretty boring. Just a heads up, hopefully those of you who added it to your potential reads will like it better than I did.

Candice (locomonobano) | 78 comments Finished book #2 Princess of the Midnight Ball (The Princesses of Westfalin Trilogy, #1) by Jessica Day George . I'll update my original post when I get my computer working again.

This was better, I give it 3.5 stars. I didn't know the original story well so it was an interesting read for me. Also, this has been on my shelf for like 2 or 3 years after I got it as a gift, so it felt good to finish it (just like in the last challenge!)


message 29: by Ashley (new)

Ashley  (ashleycw) | 136 comments I finished my first one The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1) by Rick Riordan (Greek Mythology) it was pretty fun. Although Apollo is not my favorite MC.


message 30: by Kdbrand (last edited Jan 12, 2018 10:18AM) (new)

Kdbrand | 353 comments Finished my first one last night. East by Edith Pattou , and was pleasantly surprised. It's a retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon-a Norwegian fairy tale. I enjoyed the clever storytelling and different voices of the characters. Great book!

Updated post #7

Diane | 1231 comments I finished my 1st today - A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling and it was AWESOME! I love Sara J Maas!


message 32: by mich (new)

mich | 299 comments Finished my 2nd For Darkness Shows the Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #1) by Diana Peterfreund Persuasion retelling.

I gave it 2 stars :P

I've never read Persuasion, but now I want to though.

oh, and something weird I noticed - the main guy in this book was named Kai, the dude in the last retelling book I read was named Kai, and the next retelling book I'm planning to read is Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4) by Marissa Meyer which has you know, KAI. Lol. Is there some unwritten rule that I don't know about?? :)

I see so many mixed ratings on that one, but I think I remember seeing that even the guys who don't like the first one end up LOVING the second one. I'm looking forward to trying that series :)


message 34: by Diane (new)

Diane | 1231 comments I can't figure out if the second one would qualify for a retelling. I know this one does but I am really looking forward to the next. Has anyone read A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas and can enlighten me?


message 35: by Ashley (last edited Jan 19, 2018 01:04PM) (new)

Ashley  (ashleycw) | 136 comments I read my second one, A Tale Dark & Grimm (A Tale Dark & Grimm, #1) by Adam Gidwitz . Its technically middle grade but it definitely had a lot of beheading for a younger kids book.

Mist and Fury changed how I perceive "true love" and was hands down my favorite in the series. That being said... I can't think of a fairy tale that it could apply to, other than it could be considered what happens after Beauty and Beast? Sorry Diane!

I didn't mind it, but I wasn't looking for a retelling and was super in the mood for the high school drama at the time.

But you're right Candice, its a pretty bad 'retelling'

Yeah, the high school drama wasn't for me in that one. What else have you read in that category? Can you make any recommendations? I remember liking these before but I can't say I've found anything good recently. Or I'm getting too old hahaha... *sob*

Candice (locomonobano) | 78 comments Finished #4 Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings, #1) by Jackson Pearce updated post 8

I liked this one much more. Not sure if it is really good though or if my standards were lowered. I gave it 4.5/5. I like that the protagonists are sisters and they kick a lot of ass. I compared it to a gory, non-musical Frozen.


message 49: by Kdbrand (last edited Jan 26, 2018 07:47AM) (new)

Kdbrand | 353 comments Finished #2-- Beauty A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley . Such a delightful story! I truly didn't expect to enjoy it so much; it reminded me some of the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast.

Most of the Fairy Tale Retellings that I've LOVED are middle grades, so they wouldn't be helpful with this challenge.
Peter and the Starcatchers (Peter and the Starcatchers, #1) by Dave Barry The Fairy-Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm, #1) by Michael Buckley A Tale Dark & Grimm (A Tale Dark & Grimm, #1) by Adam Gidwitz and anything Rick Riordan does.

I liked Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer , Kill Me Softly (Beau Rivage, #1) by Sarah Cross , The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1) by Rick Riordan

Splintered (Splintered, #1) by A.G. Howard was okay. Its a much better representation of the Alice story.
