I am singing "it's the most wonderful time of the year", or maybe one of a couple most wonderful times, and no, I am not talking about Christmas!
It's time for Once Upon a Time V, hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings!
This year I am planning to participate in two different aspects of the experience.
Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.
And this time, for the first time, I am also going to do:
This quest involves the reading of one or more short stories that fit within at least one of the four genres during the course of the any weekend, or weekends, during the challenge.
So here's the list of books that I will probably choose from:
The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
The Vampire Dimitri by Colleen Gleason
A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine
Bumped by Megan McCafferty
The Vampire Narcise by Colleen Gleason
Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton
Monsters and Men by Patrick Ness
A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
