“There was one small boy who saw them pass, his nose pressed to the window glass as four, ten, twenty coyotes drifted through suburban yards, headed for some wilder place where the child longed to follow. Later his mother would tell him it was only a dream, and he would believe her.” ~Terri Windling, “The Wood Wife”
Once Upon a Time is dedicated to exploring the genres of fairy tale, fantasy, folklore, and mythology.
Everyone is welcome to join! This was the first challenge that I participated in when I started my blog last year, and it was an extremely rewarding and memorable experience.
The different levels of this challenge are divided into quests (in keeping with the fantasy feel). I’m going to go for Quest the First, which involves reading five books. I’m also going embark on the Short Story Quest.
Now, for reading plans! There are two groupreads scheduled for Once Upon a Time. In April we’ll be reading the first book of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series. In May we’ll be reading “Neverwhere” by Neil Gaiman.
In addition to the groupreads, I’ll be working my way through some of the books that I’ve been collecting for the past year. I made a shelf on Goodreads with my potential choices. (Let me know if it doesn’t work; I don’t use Goodreads as often as I should.)
What is everyone else planning on reading?
