Btt and a Challenge!


Hooray! Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the 5th Once Upon a Time Challenge, where we all revel in fairy tales and fantasy books. This is always such a fun challenge! I'll be doing Quest the First and may try to sneak in a reading of Midsummer Night's Dream too!

Here's my pool:
  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemison
  • Lament by Maggie Steifvater
  • Jaran by Kate Elliott
  • Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
  • Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling
  • Mainspring by Jay Lake
  • Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper
  • Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
  • Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
  • Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Man, i have a few tomes on there huh?

For BTT:

Series? Or Stand-alone books?

Hmm. Depends on my mood? some series get tired and are just not worth it. but i love stories that have scope so i do love series. so, both?
