Once Upon a Time II Reading Challenge


I can't resist a fantasy/fairy tale/folklore reading challenge. Those subjects are such a large percentage of my TBR pile I'm happy any time I find a way to structure in reading more of them.

I'm going to do the first quest, and read at least five books in the challenge subjects. I've come up with the following list of six to choose from. I may substitute this, depending on the borrowability of a couple of them that are library books, but I think I'll be able to stick to this list.

Anansi Boys - Neil Gaimen
The Nibelungenlied
Howl's Moving Castle - Dianne Wynne Jones
Beast - Donna Jo Napoli
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld - Patricia McKillip
Tam Lin - Patricia Dean

Thank you so much for joining in. I'm thrilled you are doing so! Great list! I was telling someone the other day that if you ever get a chance to listen to the audio version of Anansi Boys I highly recommend it. The reader is fantastic.

Cool! I'll definitely have to remember that.

Carl V. is right - the Anasi Boys reader is AWESOME!

I need to develop some time for reading to audio books. I have tons of recommendations, but barely any time to look into them.
