A few months back, I signed up to the Once Upon A Time Challenge. Specifically, I signed up for Quest the Third. In addition to reading or viewing A Midsummer Night's Dream, this challenge involved the following:

Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time categories. 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 challenge finished up on the solstice (21 June).

I had hoped to stretch myself by reading a bit more of those sub-genres I don't normally--namely folklore, fairy tales and mythology. But you know what they say about good intentions...

However, I did easily make the five books. I thought I'd share what I read and some brief thoughts on some of them.

Emyr's Smile )

Shadowfell )

Raven Flight )

Dawn of Avalon )

The Vinter's Luck )


And of course there was...

Even if you have only visited this journal briefly, you'll likely be aware that I have a moderately enormous pile of books to read--a sizeable number of which are fantasy. So when I saw [personal profile] lynnoconnacht post up her introduction to the Once Upon A Time challenge I thought I'd give it a go.
