Okay, well, it's time to wrap-up a challenge and it's Carl's Once Upon a Time II.
What a lot of fun it's been. Not only reading my own books but also reading other people's reviews and adding recommendations to my 'keep an eye out for' list. In fact I found one of those at the library this morning - River Secrets by Shannon Hale. I know a lot of people were very excited about her writing during the challenge so I'm really looking forward to trying this author's work.
Anyway, as usual I'm digressing. This is the quest I was attempting for the challenge:
Quest the First:
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.
The books I read were:
The Wee Free Men
A Hat Full of Sky
All by Terry Pratchett of course.
Assassin's Quest - Robin Hobb
Dragons of Autumn Twilight - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
These five were from my list of nine but I also read two extra books which were:
Fragile Things - Neil Gaiman
The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents - Terry Pratchett
It seems I had a bit of a Terry Pratchett fest and I'll admit it, I did. But it was great, I loved it. It was so nice to discover that a series of his that I thought was not for me was, in fact, fantastic. The truth is I loved all of the books I read but if I had to choose *one* favourite it would have to be Assassin's Quest by Robin Hobb.
I'd like to thank Carl for hosting this challenge, and I'm already planning what to read for the RIP challenge in the Autumn - it can't come quickly enough!
