Spring has officially sprung according to the calendar, even though it has felt like spring for several weeks. And that means one thing in particular to me. It is officially the start of Once Upon a Time VI, a challenge hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings. Last spring, Grace at Books Without Any Pictures introduced me to Carl’s challenge. It was my first reading challenge and I made so many wonderful friends. And I read some good books.
The Once Upon a Time challenge involves reading books that fall into the genres of fantasy, folklore, mythology, and fairy tales. There are several levels to the challenge and I am going to attempt Quest the First. This means I will read five books.
I plan on reading:
Eldest—I read the first installment for last year’s challenge so I thought it fitting to read the next one.
Also, Carl is hosting two group reads during the challenge. In April we will read the first installment in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy. And in May we are reading Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.
And if I feel like getting crazy this time around, I may supplement my reading with some movies that fall into these genres. We’ll see what I can squeeze in. The challenge runs until June 19th. If you would like to join the fun, and it is fun, please visit Carl’s site and sign up. The more the merrier folks!
