Feb. 2020 Challenges Update ~ Part 1

Happy Saturday, y’all! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. It’s pretty gloomy here in NW Louisiana, but it’s still been a good day. I’ve been having some great discussions with my besties over A Gentleman in Moscow today.

2020 Retellings Reading Challenge

I love reading retellings and always wish I’d read more throughout the year, so this is motivation! And I love that the prompts are making me dig for books!! My goal is of course, Fairest of them All with 21-25+ retellings! I ain’t scared!!! Here’s the awesome bingo card to go with ~

2020 Release – A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

I haven’t made a ton of progress so far with this, but I am currently reading The Guinevere Deception, which will work for the King Arthur prompt.

Popsugar has 40 different prompts to read and an Advanced challenge with an extra 10 prompts. Of course I’m going for the whole enchilada! Click HERE if you’d like to check out all the prompts.

How are you doing with your challenges/goals for the year? Or, did you choose to stay away from challenges this year? Do you have any recommendations for any of my retelling prompts??

Happy Reading,

Alison
