The Once Upon a Time II Challenge is being hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings. There are several different 'quests' based on four genres, Fantasy, Folklore, Fairy Tales and Mythology. I'm going to be doing Quest the First which is:
Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time II 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.
I've gathered together a pool of ten books that I'll choose my five from. I must admit I had a lot of fun choosing, I sometimes think that part of it is half the fun! Anyway, my books are as follows:
Across the Face of the World – Russell Kirkpatrick (fant.)
The Ivory and the Horn – Charles De Lint (urban fant.)
Tailchaser’s Song – Tad Williams (fant.)
Beauty – Robin McKinley (fairy tales)
Temeraire – Naomi Novik (hist. fant.)
Extra Books read:
To the tell the truth I'd like to read all of them but am not sure how realistic that hope is. We'll see, I can only do my best and I'm sure whatever I manage it'll be a lot of fun trying.
