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.
( Red Seas Under Red Skies )
( Emyr's Smile )
( Shadowfell )
( Raven Flight )
( Dawn of Avalon )
( The Vinter's Luck )
And of course there was...
( A Midsummer Night's Dream )
