To be honest with you, this reading “challenge” is one of the reasons why I continue to blog. I’ve been blogging for seven years and I’ve joined this event almost every year. If I remember correctly, it was Dewey who got me to join (she also got me to read Neil Gaiman and graphic novels too). Reading events and challenges like Once Upon a Time, Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.), and Dewey’s Readathon always leave me feeling excited and breathless at their arrival.
Anyways. Here’s the details:
Once Upon a Time is an annual reading challenge hosted by Carl (Stainless Steel Droppings).
Readers can read from any of the four categories: Folklore, Fantasy, Fairy Tale, and Mythology.
It runs from March 21st – June 21st.
Participants pick how they want to participate from watching movies to reading short stories.
The only rule: have fun.
Since I can’t join a reading event of any kind without going overboard, I think I’ll join a quest or two.
- A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
- The Memory Garden by Mary Rickert
- Cress by Marissa Meyer
- Ella Enchanted by Gail Levine
- Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick
- Half World by Hiromi Goto
A reading event that includes watching movies or TV shows?! Hell yes! I do need some suggestions though.
So that’s what I’m going to read. What are you reading for Once Upon a Time VIII? You are going to join, right?
