#RetellingAThon Wrap-up!

Hello bookworms! August is over and that means that the #RetellingAThon is over too. Thank you so much to everyone who participated and a very special thanks to the hosts Tay and Missy from Frayed Books and my fellow co-hosts Harker from The Hermit Librarian and Jennifer from Bibliolater. I’ve never co-hosted a readathon before but you made it a fun and exciting experience for me!

I ended up reading 6 books for the readathon, completing 5/25 challenges and reading 2,027 pages! To be fair, doing five challenges is rather pitiful but I had a lot of other arcs I had to read this month and I couldn’t fit any more in!

I hosted and mainly participated in Fairy Tale week and here was my tbr for the week:

And here are the books I actually read:

Mythology Week:

I decided to read two books for mythology week because I’d been wanting to read them for a long time and never got round to it.

  • The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker (a retelling of The Iliad): 4 stars
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (a retelling of The Iliad): 3.5 stars

Fairy Tale:

I managed to read three out of the seven books on my tbr and one other retelling that wasn’t on my tbr. Weirdly enough, all these books start with ‘S’!

  • Song of Sorrow by Amanda Allen (a retelling of Rapunzel): 3 stars
  • Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce (a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood): 3.5 stars
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (a retelling of Rumplestiltskin): 5 stars
  • Shadow Frost by Coco Ma (a slight retelling of Snow White): 4 stars

So that’s my progress during the readathon! It was fun and I hope to do another soon!

  1. I’m so glad you liked The Silence of the Girls! I think I read that a little earlier this year and something about it really made me invested in it. I loved the story so much and I’m not usually a historical fiction person (well I wasn’t but I am slowly getting more into it!). Good job with these readathons!
