2020 Retellings Reading Challenge


One genre that I enjoy reading, and I don’t get to read enough, is retellings of fairy tales. So, for this challenge, it is all about that. Any retelling will work, but I am going to be looking for the fairy tales first. The challenge creator has this set up as a bingo, which is a first for me, so we will see just how well I do.
