There are actually a couple of books that I would like to try to read that have been made into either a movie or TV show.

I voted for 'Fairy Tale', but 'Book Made into Movies' works for me as well. What books do you want to read?

I voted for Fairy Tale/Retelling of a Fairy Tale as I have been drawn to this genre as of late and I’m sure I have more to explore on this area.

This month I read House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig, a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and LOVED it!

Could someone possibly post a link to the August forum please? I see the”August Discussion” forum tab, but once I click it there are not any discussion topics there to post to. I am likely missing it somewhere since I’m still fairly new here and in finding my way around. Thank you!

There are no topics on it yet. Here is the link to the forum: August 2020 Genre Discussion.

@hsimone, I hope you don't mind, I opened a few topics here: August 2020 Genre Discussion. :tiphat:
