Why I'm Interested:
I've put off reading Jane Eyre for FAR TOO LONG. Other than that, I think I can knock this challenge out with all the fairy tale retellings on my TBR.
I also like that the challenge makes me think of a big cheeseburger.
Some books I'm considering:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
East of the Sun, West of the Moon
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George
The Goose Girl by the Brothers Grimm
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
9. The Girl Games by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
8. Medusa the Mean by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
7. Artemis the Loyal by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
6. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
5. A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
4. Aphrodite the Diva by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
3. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
2. Athena the Wise by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Have you signed up for this challenge? What books are you planning on reading? Do you have any suggestions that I absolutely MUST read?
