It may not feel like it but Spring is upon us which also means it is time for the Once Upon A Time Challenge  hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings.  

  • Challenge runs through March 21 – June 21
Categories:

  1. Fairy Tale
  2. Folklore
  3. Fantasy
  4. Mythology
Last year I participated in Quest the First which requires five books read and I think I only read one, while I hope to read more  this year I am traveling The Journey.

This is really as simple as the name implies. It means you are participating, but not committing yourself to any specific number of books. By signing up for The Journey you are agreeing to read at least one book within one of the four categories during March 21st to June 21st period. Just one book. If you choose to read more, fantastic! If not, then we have still had the pleasure of your company during this three month reading journey and hopefully you have read a great book, met some interesting people, and enjoyed the various activities that occur during the challenge. It has always been of utmost importance to me that the challenges that I host be all about experiencing enjoyable literature and sharing it with others. I want you to participate. Hence, The Journey.  

  1. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
  2. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. Cress by Marissa Meyer
  4. While Beauty Slept by Elizabeth Blackwell
  5. Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
  6. James Clyde and the Diamonds of Orchestra by Colm McElwain
  7. Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon

  1. Cress is also on my reading list for this "challenge". Boy, Snow, Bird is a fantastic book. I hope you enjoy it. Looking at your list, I should probably add While Beauty Slept to my own list. Enjoy!

  2. Hah, the Princess Bride and LoTR – great choices – and I'm sure all the others are but I haven't read them so will have to await your reviews.

  3. Great choices! I love The Princess Bride, I've got Cress on my list too, and I read Lord of the Rings for OUaT last year…and Tolkien strikes me as challenging enough for any challenge!
