Season 4: Which Retelling Next?

We’re looking for your input! Again, it’s about time that we’re finishing up a season and gearing for the next, so while Meg and I are putting together our Donkeyskin retellings, we’d love it if you go and vote for our next podcast retelling. Please and thank you and I will hopefully be back next post with a review or two!

Fableulous Retellings Podcast

Before we get into the nitty gritty of polling, we just wanted to announce the winning fairy tale to be retold in the last poll: Donkeyskin! Yep, with your help, we now know what to talk about for our third season.

That being said, we are also sending out some invites! Want to chat with us about Donkeyskin retellings? Let us know! This fairy tale is a personal favorite of mine, but that’s probably because deep down I have a sick and twisty soul with a penchant around sick and twisty tales. In any case, there’s going to be lots of fun discussing the issues to be had in this fairy tale. There’s still a couple weeks left before Season 2 comes to a close, so do let us know if you’re willing to make a guest appearance on our fableulous podcast!

Alright, now that we’ve finally locked down…

Season 3: Which Retelling Next?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to determine the fate of the fairy tale retelling in our hands. Wouldn’t you want to be a part of the suggestion process? Yes? Right? 😀

Please vote for our Season 3 fairy tale! You can look at the details on the original post, and it is a very quick click of the button. We promise there won’t be any dangerous beasties lurking in the corner, so it’s safe to vote your hearts away. Thank you kindly!

Season 1 is almost done, and we’ve got Season 2 under way, but now we need YOUR help! What fairy tale retelling should we delve into next?

This is just a mere fraction of the fairy tales written down in the world, but you guys, there are SO many options of what to delve into!

We’ve got a couple of ideas of where to head to next, but it would be fun to see what you guys want to see us discuss. So for that to work, we’ve made a teeny tiny poll. Tell us which of the fairy tales you want discussed in our podcast. To keep it concise, we’ve listed down three fairy tales and if you want to suggest us something, throw them in the comments section!

Please make note that we do look for fairy tales that have been RETOLD in at least two different works…

Season 1, Episode 1: Beauty and the Beast

I mentioned this a while back, where my friend and I were embarking on a fairy tale retelling podcast. And after weeks of putting our first season together, we’ve finally published our first episode!

For our first season, we will be discussing the wonderful story of Beauty and the Beast. The episode takes a look at two of the original tales and discusses the importance of roses, libraries, and invisible servants within the popular tale.

If you like fairy tales, fairy tale retellings, fantasy, podcasts, and, well, YA and NA stories, you should really check Fableulous Retellings out.

Meg and Mari open their first season by discussing the classic original fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast! They focus on the original and first adaptation as it is frequently what is used in modern retellings. They make their checklist to use against the five modern retellings they’ll be reviewing this season, as well as why they think the story came to exist!

Mystery Blogger Award

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but since I do have a backlog of posts to get through, I figured now was a good time to do this! Christina at The Bookshelf Corner was kind enough to tag me for this, which is pretty cool! The Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Enigma.

The Rules

1. Put the award logo/image in your post.
2. List all the rules.
3. Thank whoever nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
4. Tell your readers three things about yourself.
5. Nominate 10-20 people and notify them **
6. Link back to the creator of the award.
7. Ask nominees any 5 questions of your choice, with a weird or funny question.
8. Share the link to your best/favourite post of yours.

** Make note that I’m kind of a rule-breaker, so…

These Three Things

  1. I love traveling and would go around the world if I could.
  2. I have an eclectic search history, but I suppose that goes under the territory of writing a steampunk novel.
  3. I have decided that this year, my Halloween costume will be No-Face.

The Answers

  • What are you currently reading?

Several things, because why not. Portal of a Thousand Worlds by Dave Duncan, which I’ve put on temporary hold because of the other things I want to finish. Like Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, which is a little painful to read because KAROU AND AKIVA GET BACK TOGETHER ALREADY PLSTHX. Oh, and Arabian Nights, selected tales translated by Richard Francis Burton. I’m also going to re-read The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh soon.

  • What has been your favorite book read so far of 2017 and why?

Ugh. God. This is such a loaded question. I loved a lot of the books I’d read this year. I suppose it’ll have to be A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. Because hell yes to that book.

  • What new book(s) are you looking forward to being released later this year (if applicable)?

The downside with having gone to BookCon is that I’m now aware of SO MANY books that are coming out and want each and every one of them! The Because You Love to Hate Me anthology just came out today, which I want. I’d love to finally get a copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater looks really good, and because it’s Marissa Meyer, I also want Renegades.

  • If your bookshelf could talk, what would it say? (the weird-ish question)

“Reorganize me already!” Yeah, I’m due for fixing my bookshelf up again…

  • What book series would you like to see turned into a TV series or movie?

A whole lot. I’d love to see Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson on screen. The Shades of Magic series by Schwab, the Lunar Chronicles by M. Meyer would totally be an animated series and I’d watch the hell out of that. I also wouldn’t mind watching a live action serial of anything Patricia Briggs came up with. Mostly because werewolves.

Favorite Post

Uh. I suppose shoutout to my Food and Fandom page because it’s always my favorite post when I talk about food?

The Nominations

  • Totally throwing Meg @ La Foi Aveugle under the bus for this one specifically.
  • And YOU. Or anyone else who’d like to respond to these possibly riveting questions. XD

The Questions

  1. What book are you adamant on reading this year, if nothing else?
  2. If you had to listen to an audiobook instead of read a book, who would your dream voice narrator be?
  3. What actor/actress would you see playing your fictional crush, provided the book becomes a movie/show?
  4. Which of your favorite fictional characters would make excellent space pirates? And it does NOT count if they’re already space pirates.
  5. Dragon or unicorn?
