once upon a time vii

Once upon a Time VII Reading ChallengeSpring arrived while I was in Salt Lake, leaving me pleased with the change in season, but unable to focus on the important aspects thereof, such as the beginning of the annual reading challenge, Once upon a Time, now in its seventh incarnation.

Now that I’m back and able to concentrate on books once again, I’m eager to participate. This year I’ll again be signing up for Quest the First, wherein I agree to, before summer begins:

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.

I’m not yet sure which books I’ll read, but I did receive a Kristin Cashore novel as a belated birthday present, and both Seraphina and The Peculiar were shortlisted for the Cybils in their respective categories. I also have a tome of Icelandic mythology I bought before our trip a few years ago, but honestly 800 pages seems a bit daunting.

If you’ve got a recommendation for me to read in these categories before June 21, I welcome them.
