Retelling January '16 | Recap of 2015.
First off, if you haven't signed up for this challenge, you can until February 1st. Go to the introduction post with the master sign-up linky.
Other technical details: don't forget to tweet and Instagram with the hash-tag #fairytaleRC.
Can you believe it’s already 2016 and that we are starting a new, clean sheet? Let’s keep those fairytale retellings coming! I hope you are all ready to get some reading done (let me know in the comments which level you are aiming for and what your first book might be.) At the end of this post you can put links to your challenge page/post and every review you post on your blog. Please make this easy to navigate by putting it like this:
UPDATE @ your name/blog name. This is your master post, like your challenge page.
REVIEW – book title @ your name/blog name.
I am SO excited you guys! There was a moment where I wasn’t sure if I wanted to host the challenge again. It’s quite time consuming and I wasn’t sure if I had enough ideas, but then I had a moment of inspiration and I wrote down tons of ideas for the monthly posts. It’s a shame I didn’t receive many feedback on my November 2015 post, but I got a few new ideas from people and I will work with it.
I thought this would be a good time to recap the Fairytale challenge from 2015 and to give you a little view of what you can expect from 2016.

One square is enough to qualify for the extra points in the giveaway!
What can you expect from this challenge in 2016?
I am planning to integrate Youtube and/or Instagram into the challenge. I have a puzzle, a new quiz, discussion posts, information and hopefully a few more challenges. I'm also going to place a bigger focus on other retellings than fairytales, to make sure this challenge is suited for everyone! I'm also using at least one guest post, so I think we are up to some fun posts!
If there is something you really want to see, let me know!
