2012 Fairy Tale Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!


I am a sucker for fairy tales! My girls love to read them.

This challenge is being hosted by Tif at Tif Talks Books.

Here are the details copied from Tif's blog:

2012 Fairy Tale Challenge


I am so excited to announce that the Fairy Tale Challenge is returning for 2012! For all those who love fairy tales, both in writing and on the screen, this is your opportunity to share your love with other fans. Just as last year, we will have four different levels:

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 a total of 6 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 notes of importance:

The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.

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!

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 comment section.

Reviews are not required, but are encouraged. Other participants enjoy receiving recommendations!

A Mr. Linky is below for sign-ups. Another post will be made for adding your reviews. Both direct links can be found on the left sidebar.

You can overlap your choices with other challenges.

  2. Watched the 2011 movie "Red Riding Hood" (see my comments above the movie in the book review for #1)
  3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer (Lunar Chronicles, Book 1) 
  4. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer
  5. Matchless: A Christmas Story by Gregory Maguire 
  6. Watched the 2007 movie "Enchanted" with my kids, and we loved it! Amy Adams as Princess Giselle was wonderful!
