Not to worry either, just because I'm going to be a little slower getting around to reading/posting, I did have something planned out that I'd like to still do:
Post edited November 11, 2013-- Please read for the new additions and updates to this post!
This is not a meme or a feature that any of you have to participate in, but you're welcome to if you want/have a couple of books on your shelf that are re-tellings from a classic/fairytale/mythology, etc.. and would like to just pick them up during the same time. I'm just doing this for fun for me mostly though and hope you enjoy the content I put up in the meantime. **I'm not going to be strictly focused on this topic throughout the next month, but a majority of my discussion topics and several reviews will be marked under this feature.**
The thing about re-tellings with me is that I'm a picky reader with them. So sometimes I might love one, and the next absolutely loathe. I seem to always be drawn to wanting to give them a try though, and this leads to having several on my shelf--even now. The idea just seemed to spark from there while I was looking them over today.
So on November 15th, I will be sharing my first Re-Telling Reads Review, as well as cross-featuring with Forgotten Fridays with Kara and Lyn since it's an older book and I thought it'd be perfect to start taking part then. :)
**I had to make some post rearrangements obviously. Anyone who might remember the original post before I edited this knows I meant to make my review already along with a some discussions. My weekend completely escaped me, to be honest. I barely finished that one book by this past Friday (haven't finished writing review yet either) and haven't even started reading the other two books that are promised for this feature (For Darkness Shows The Stars and Cruel Beauty). They will be started this week though. The wonderful thing is the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much content I could create out of this feature. Thus, I changed it to last a month long with various posts in between any other posts I need to make. And while Novemeber is half over, for this year I will continue through most of December before I end it with a giveaway. Next year, I will make sure it is much more organized if I do it again now that I have my notes and things in order, and would have a set month/date. I definitely wouldn't do it during November again. Haha. :P
