The Classic Double Challenge is hosted by Melissa at One Librarian’s Book Reviews. The goal is to read a classic and a modern re-telling of that classic. Fairy tales, mythologies, classics, or any kind of original story all count. I use this goal to get me to read classics that I haven’t read yet with a new, modern version of it.
Medium Level – 4 books (2 sets)
There are so many great re-tellings coming out next year, but here are the two classic books that I really want to read next year.
2. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy + Across the Star Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund (I want to watch the movie with Jane Seymour, too!)
3. The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells + Transparent by Natalie Whipple
