Mar. 2020 Challenges Update ~ Part 1

Y’all, I am soooo far behind on keeping up with reviews and such this year, and the craziness we’re all living in today just isn’t helping the matter…at all. But that’s okay. I’m going ahead and posting my progress, but it’s not actually up to date as I have more I need to add in, but I figured I’d go ahead and post what I have kept up to date in my records.

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 ~

King Arthur – The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White

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.

That’s the progress I’ve made on each of these challenges so far. I’ll post the second half of my challenge updates soon. 🙂

How are you doing with your challenges/goals for the year? Or, did you choose to stay away from challenges this year? Or maybe you threw it all out the window with the whole apocalypse raining down on us? P.S. If you don’t like humor about serious things just ignore me. It’s one of the ways I cope. Do you have any recommendations for any of my retelling prompts??

Happy Reading,

Alison
