Once Upon a Time VII is here! Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the challenge:

Thursday, March 21st begins the seventh annual Once Upon a Time Challenge. This is a reading and viewing event that encompasses four broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology, including the seemingly countless sub-genres and blending of genres that fall within this spectrum. The challenge continues through Friday, June 21st and allows for very minor (1 book only) participation as well as more immersion depending on your reading/viewing whims.

There are several options to choose from and I’m going to participate in

Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time categories. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.

Reading pool:
It’s high time for me to finish a couple of fantasy series I’ve enjoyed a lot so “Burn the Night” by Jocelynn Drake and “Con and Conjure” and “All Spell Breaks Loose” by Lisa Shearin are on the list.

A wolf at the Door by K. A. Steward is the third in the series.
Blue Magic by Dellamonica is the second in the series.

I’m probably going to also begin at least one more series:
The Stepsister Scheme by Jim Hines
