Fairy Tale Challenge



That's it I give up and I give in. I'm becoming a reading challenge addict. Here is yet another one I'm signing on for. Tif over at http://www.tiftalksbooks.com is hosting a fairy tale themed challenge. I will be signing up for Royal Princess but hoping to get to Happily Ever After To sign up go to http://www.tiftalksbooks.com/2010/12/2011-fairy-tale-challenge.html Here are the details as copied directly from her site.

  • Fairy (Level 1):  Read 1 original tale.  Read 1 modern tale.  Watch 1 film. (Total of 3 selections.)
  • Dwarf (Level 2):  Read/watch any combination of original tales, modern tales, or films, resulting in 6 total selections.
  • Royal Prince or Princess (Level 3):  Read/watch any combination of original tales, modern tales, or films, resulting in 9 total selections.
  • Happily Ever After (Level 4):  Read/watch any combination of original tales, modern tales, or films, resulting in 12 total selections.

Here are a few other thoughts to share that may or may not be important to you . . . 
  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
  • Selections can include any age level or genre, from picture books and classics to young adult and even graphic novels.  Creativity is completely acceptable here!
  • You do not need to determine your list of fairy tales.  Go with what moves you at the time!
  • You need not have participated in Fairy Tale Fridays to participate in the 2011 Fairy Tale Challenge.  It is open to everyone interested!
  • A blog is not required, but it is encouraged.  You are also welcome to keep track of your selections via Goodreads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, or simply the comments section.
  • Reviews are not required, but are encouraged . . . I just really want to hear your thoughts and recommendations on what you read!  That is just me being selfish!
  • A Mr. Linky will be posted at the beginning of every month for you to share your selections if you do choose to review them.  Comments are also fine for sharing as well.  You will be able to refer to the direct links to these posts on the sidebar for easy reference.
  • You can overlap your choices with other challenges.
  • Prizes and guest posts will randomly appear in the monthly review posts to share some fairy tale love with participants.
