Melissa's (One Librariran's Book Reviews) Classic Double Challenge is a given for me now. Last year it was such fun to read a classic and then a retelling of that book. I LOVE this challenge! I was able to read two stories (four books) which I plan to do again this year.... that is... unless I do three! Gah, I want to read them all!
Here's what I'm hoping to do this year:
The Scarlet Pimpernel (which we'll soon be reading for book club)
Across the Star Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund (the sequel to For Darkness Shows the Stars, which you can bet I'll be reading challenge or no challenge!)
The Romance of Tristan and Isolde (I LOVE this story and have never yet read an "original" old version)
Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Tristan and Isult by Rosemary Sutcliff
Peter Pan (I started this once and never finsihed. It's time.)
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
The Child Thief by Brom
Hmmm.... well it looks like for a couple of them I'll be reading TWO retellings! It's just too hard to decide these things!
Also, be sure to check out Melissa's Retell Me a Story Week coming up on her blog next week! I've written a guest post that she'll be sharing which I can't wait for you to read! And mine is only one among many. I hope you come and see what Melissa has planned!
