I feel as though I've been waiting for this one for weeks... my books all ready and waiting and piled up on the shelf. As always it is hosted by Carl and as always there are several options to choose from. I'm going for...
The object of this is to:
Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time IV criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.
These are the books I've collected together for my pool *but* they're not necessarily the exact books I'll read. I tend to read a few off my own pile and also get inspired by what others are reading and end up reading a few off their piles too! Such is the world of book blogging. Anyway this is my pile:
From the bottom:
The Remarkable Adventures of Tom Scatterhorn by Henry Chancellor. I know nothing whatsoever about this book. My little grandaughter gave it to me on a recent trip to Exeter city library and said that it was 'really good' and when she does that I always try to read whatever she's recommending so that we can chat about it.
Greenwitch by Susan Cooper. Book three of her 'Over sea, under stone' series that I've loved so far. There's only one copy in Devon libraries and I nabbed that too while I was in Exeter.
The Magician by Michael Scott. Book two in his Nicholas Flamel series. I read book one last year and it's about time I got to book two.
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. This has sat on my tbr mountain for years but just recently my husband and daughter have been gushing about this series so it's time to see what I'm missing.
Temeraire by Naomi Novik. Another series I've been wanting to read in forever! This one will double up for my Year of the Historical challenge.
The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett. I've never read the first couple of Discworld books and am reading them for the Terry Pratchett challenge Marg is hosting. So this one will also be a double-up book.
Storm Front by Jim Butcher. The first in a series that I've been wanting to read forever. Now's my chance.
So that's it. The challenge runs from the 21st. March to the 20th. June and I can't wait to start reading.
