The Once Upon a Time II Challenge

Yay! It's that time of year again, it's the start of -The Once Upon a Time II Challenge!!! I did this Challenge last year and I found so many new authors to read, so when Carl V over at Stainless Steel Droppings made the announcement, I started compiling my list.


I'll be doing Quest the Third which is:

Fulfill the requirements for Quest the First or Quest the Second AND top it off with a June reading of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Quest the Second is: Read at least one book from each of the four categories. In this quest you will be reading 4 books total: one fantasy, one folklore, one fairy tale, and one mythology.

So my list of books (which I reserve the right to change up at any time) are:

1) Fantasy-Magic bites by Andrews, Ilona

2) Folklore- Swimming without a net by MaryJanice Davidson, a modern mermaid story.

3) Fairy Tale- Goose Girl by Shannon Hale, I've read another of her stories for the 1st challenge

4) Mythology- Legend by David Lynn Golemon, is a stretch, it's a thriller about the search for El Dorado. I may replace this if I find something not set in today's world....but I'm excited to read this one.

I'm so looking forward to everyone's review and find new great reads.

You're in again! Woo!!! I'm happy to see you in round two. I look forward to seeing exactly what you read as well as reading your reviews.

Go read "A Curse Dark as Gold" by Elizabeth C. Bunce. It's fabulous. It's a retelling of Rumplestiltskin.

I've got it on my library list. I was looking at what other people in the challenge are reading and stumbled across it. I love my library, I can order what I want to read on-line and they email me when they have it. They also have a list section where I can put books I want to read but not ready to get yet, so I don't forget about them. I love that function. When I need new books, I just open my list up and order.
