Let's Play A Game Of YA Retelling Bingo!

It’s no secret that retellings are one of the best things to come out of YA lately. These remixes of the classics we grew up with give us *life* and make our bookshelves look oh so pretty. We know there are a lot of them, so in honor of THE WISH GRANTER by C.J. Redwine, a fantasy retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, we decided to have some fun with it and turn the genre into a little game!

If you scroll down a little, you’ll see our official Epic Reads Retellings Bingo card! The idea is to score five in a row, marking off any spot once you read a book that fills its category. Think you can do it? Think you already have?! Take a peak, download the image, print it out—whatever you think will help you tackle this epic fantastical challenge.

Want to download this and print it? You can download the PDF version right here!

Not sure where to start? No worries! We’ve got your back. (And don’t worry, it’s not in a creepy you’ll-regret-it-later Rumpelstiltskin kind of way. We’re actually here to help.) Here are a few suggestions for each square of recent releases that will help you check off another box until you get to shout out BINGO! But just remember that there are SO MANY retellings out there so consider this list below just a place to get started!
