The Retold Fairytales & Enchanted Cousins Reading Challenge 2011!

The Retold Fairy Tales & their Enchanted Cousins 2011 Reading Challenge is hosted by Tanya @ Among the Muses!
Challenge Objective:
To read stories that have taken classic fairy tales that we all know and love, and have woven them into a new alternative tale that mirrors the original.

Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 - December 31, 2011.

Cross-overs with other challenges are welcome.

Retold fairy tales can span across any genre and sub-genre -- including YA (there's some great ones out there!) -- can be any length, and in any format.

The book MUST be fiction, and be a retold fairy tale.
You can change your challenge level at any time.

What's An Enchanted Cousin?
  • Because there is a lot of debate amongst what constitutes as a fairy tale (especially between countries), the challenge will also include any "cousins" of fairy tales, but MUST include fairy tale elements that traditionally represent a fairy tale notion. 

Challenge Levels:
  • Dreamer: 1 -3 retold fairy tale reads
  • Magical: 4 -6 retold fairy tale reads
  • Enchanted: 6 -9 retold fairy tale reads
  • HEA: 9 -12 retold fairy tale reads

Also there's a post HERE where you can link up Retold Fairy Tales Suggestions!

I'll start with the Magical level & read 4-6 retold fairy tales, although I'm hoping to reach the Enchanted level, 'cause there a lot fairy tale re-tellings that I want to read! I'll just list the books as I read them!
