Seven years ago, when this blog was brand new, Carl V. started his Once Upon a Time reading challenge. It was the first challenge I’d ever heard of, and I was excited to sign up and try out this new way of reading. I loved my reading during that first “OUaT,” and I repeated the experience for three more years. Now, after my recent extended hiatus from blogging, I again hear the call of Carl’s elegantly designed challenge.
So, once again, I’m going to choose “Quest the first,” which means that I will read five books from the 4 genres of this challenge: fantasy, folklore, fairy tales, or mythology.
I will also follow the four rules of Carl’s challenge:
Rule #1: Have fun.
Rule #2: HAVE FUN.
Rule #3: Don’t keep the fun to yourself, share it with us, please!
Rule #4: Do not be put off by the word “challenge”.
Here is my starting list for this challenge, and I will keep adding to it as I go . And here, also, are links to my previous years’ wrap-up posts for this delightful reading challenge. If you are participating this year, I hope you enjoy this reading experience as much as I have and will! Happy reading!
My reading for OUAT-VII:
- The Changeling Sea, by Patricia McKillip
- Arabian Nights and Days, by Naguib Mahfouz
- The Sea Fairies, by L. Frank Baum
Links to my previous reads for this challenge:
Once Upon a Time – I
Once Upon a Time – II
Once Upon a Time – III
Once Upon a Time – IV (I read four books for this challenge but didn’t do a wrap-up post which would have made it a lot easier to link to..!)
