#COYER Read-athon – Fairy Tales with a Twist

July 11th – 13th: Fairy Tales with a Twist
Read fairy tale re-tellings and give those childhood favorites a twist!

The Rules

  1. Sign up!
  2. Sometime between now and the end of the read-a-thon post on your blog, twitter, FB, Google+, Goodreads, Booklikes (you get the idea… somewhere!) that you’re participating. That’s the link you’ll need for the Rafflecopter.
  3. Read books that are in someway related to a fairy tale. When you finish a book do a general update with a link that you can put on the Rafflecopter. Example – on Goodreads you could write: “Great, cute book! 4 stars! Full review coming soon!” and that would count. (For COYER participants, just do something quick and then update with full review for COYER linky)
  4. Have FUN!!!

Not sure if all of these will count as retellings, but they’re definitely in the fairy tale vein.

  1. I hav a book that’s been sitting on my shelf for a few years now that would be perfect for this challenge: “My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me” – have you heard tell of it before? (I’ve also considered making fairy tales a suit in DMI but haven’t tried it thus far. Maybe next year…)

    1. No worries.

      I am so terrible at getting through anthologies that I had checked out “My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me” from the library once, but didn’t get more than a few stories in. These two anthologies are bite-sized in comparison.
