…and they lived happily ever after

Yesterday concludes the sixth annual Once Upon a Time Challenge, hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings.

This challenge is special to me because last year’s Once Upon a Time was the first reading challenge that I ever participated in.

Even though I didn’t read as much this year as I had initially planned, the Once Upon a Time Challenge introduced me to many new bloggers and books, making it a complete success!

I had initially planned on reading some short stories, but I ran out of time.  Here are the books that I did manage to read:

1.  “The Wood Wife” by Terri Windling

2.  “Winter Rose” by Patricia McKillip

4.  “Chalice” by Robin McKinley

5.  “The Lies of Locke Lamora” by Scott Lynch

6.  “Elantris” by Brandon Sanderson

7.  “Wings of Wrath” by C. S. Friedman

8.  “Mistborn: The Final Empire” by Brandon Sanderson

9.  “Seraphina” by Rachel Hartman

10.  “The Court of the Air” by Stephen Hunt

11.  “Red Seas Under Red Skies” by Scott Lynch

12.  “Bitterblue” by Kristin Cashore

13.  “Neverwhere” by Neil Gaiman

A big thanks to everyone who made Once Upon a Time such a memorable experience!

  1. Lots of great authors on there! You commented that I read a lot, but looks like you read plenty too. 🙂

  2. Oh I feel like i missed out here! What a fun challenge!

    • Carl’s challenges are always excellent. There’s also the RIP (Readers Imbibing Peril) challenge in the fall that centers on gothic/horror/dark fantasy/mystery themed books. 🙂

  3. Wow, it sure seems like you read a lot to me! Carl’s challenges always seem to be fun, regardless of our completion rate, though.

    • Well, I was going to do the challenge that involved short stories, but I ran out of time and didn’t get that far. I did read a lot of novels though! 😀

  4. You were so prolific. I wanted to read more but haven’t even finished my second book, Solstice Wood.
    Altough the vent is over, I will not have to stop reading fantasy.
    I was somehow much more in the mood for dark fantasy and didn’t want to cheat.

    • Carl’s events always make me want to explore specific genres a lot more than I could feasibly do in a couple months’ worth of time.

      Dark fantasy is something that I’d definitely like to read more of. Do you have any suggestions?

      • I don’t really know where to draw the line. I though Neil Gaiman is dark fantasy. Kelly Armstrong is and basically all the vampire-werewolf novels with some exceptions. Karen Moning’s series. Fun but stll dark. There are so many. I’m not the best for suggestions as I’m still trying really,

Comments make me happy! Please feel free to leave a reply.
