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
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?
