Booklist: Retellings of Classic Literature

No comments

For those who are participating in the Retelling-A-Thon, for those who are just following along for fun or those who clicked on my Pinterest graphic in search of a Classics Retelling…..this post is for you!

Did you know that there are a TON of retellings? Name your favorite classic and I bet there is at least one. If you are a Jane Austen fan, there are A LOT. I mean A LOT. And the YA genre seems to hold the most retellings which is A-Okay in my book.

Without further ado… is just a small list of retellings of Classic Literature (with a link to each’s synoposis):

Truth Universally Acknowledged: A Jane Austen Retelling

Terror Made Me Cruel: A Bronte Sisters Retelling

We’re All Mad Here: An Alice in Wonderland Retelling

It’s Alive!: A Frankenstein Retelling

Glitter and Jazz: The Great Gatsby Retelling

Other Classic Retellings

Re-Telling-A-Thon Refresher

The teams are tasked with reading as much as they can using the prompts in the month of August for FUN (and the weekly giveaway or two).

The above lists are just SUGGESTIONS. You do not have to read in any particular order and you do can read from every category – hence the reader’s choices.

Other categories include Mythology, Shakespeare and Fairy Tales. You can review their prompts HERE.

Results should be shared on Twitter using the hashtag: #Retellingathon. You can either share as you read along. The Tweet(s) should look something like this:

#RetellingAThon Day [insert day here]

Pages Read: [insert total for that day]

Total Pages: [insert total for thon]

Challenges completed: [insert # of prompts you complete/25]

I’ll be posting my #RetellingathonTBR soon. Have fun creating (or adding to) your TBR shelves! Happy Reading!
