Contrary to what the weather gods would have us believe, it’s springtime once again…which means it’s time for Carl’s annual Once Upon a Time Challenge!
The purpose of the challenge is to celebrate the joy and wonder of spring by reading books in the following four genres: fantasy, fairy tales, mythology, and folklore. There are many different ways to participate in the challenge, but I’m going to aim for Quest the First, which requires me to read 5 books that fit into the above genres.
I’m hoping at least to read Mary Stewart’s Merlin books, which would certainly fit within the mythology category. Also on my “maybe” list are The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen, Spirit’s End by Rachel Aaron, Graceling by Kristin Cashore, Child of the Prophecy by Juliet Marillier, and Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire. Looking forward to a magical spring!
