Once Upon a Time Reading Challenge

I thought I had found all the challenges I was going to do this year, then I came across this one, hosted by  Tena at Crazy Book Slut. It's pretty easy, really. All you have to do is read 5 retold fairy tales between January 1 and December 31. She's even posted some suggested books.

Here's what Tena has to say:

"This challenge is quite simple..... read the fairy tales you grew up reading but from another view than Disney's version. There are so many great fairy tale books out there, that might take the same story we know but with an added twist.

These books can be Young Adult, Romance, Erotic, e-books, audio books.... your only limited by your own imagination.

I am going to make this an easy challenge to finish, and say the goal is to read at least 5 books, again if you want to go big or go home... read more!

The time frame for this challenge will be January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. Plenty of time. Please do not start this challenge before the time, and don't use books you have already read."

I love retold fairy tales, but don't actually read all that many of them. This should give me a little push to read more!

If you'd like to join in, sign up at Crazy Book Slut. I'd love to know if you're participating also!
