My Bucket List: YA Retellings


You can find a better list on Epic Read's website here. They even have links for the books. I just copied + pasted their list and combined it to come up with the master list below of all 162 retellings on the above chart.

As of right now, it appears I own 15/162 books.
And have read 5/162.
So I own 11 books that I have not yet read from this list.
This is a BIG bucket list goal. So I am going to break it down some. I know it is going to take me a long time to complete.
By the end of this year (2014) I want to definitely read the 11 books that I own.
It would be nice to also read another 4 from the list.
My local library system appears to have 31 of the books. (That I don't own.)
So that would be 20/162 minimum goal for the end of 2014. (Hopefully I will do better than that!)
