I’ve been fascinated by the many book challenges I see on the different blogs I visit, but have been hesitant to make a commitment to reading a certain number of books within a particular time frame. Who know how long it might take me to finish one book (Out of Africa took six weeks!), let alone multiple titles! But I can’t resist this new one! Carl V.’s “Once Upon a Time” challenge (with its beautiful button) has captured my imagination, so I’m embarking on my first book challenge, which looks to be a great adventure. Thanks, Carl!
I have chosen “Quest One: Read at least 5 books from any of the 4 genres.” Here are some of the books I found that have been patiently waiting on my shelves:
- The Moorchild, by Eloise McGraw
- The Arthurian Trilogy written by Rosemary Sutcliff: The Sword and The Circle, The Light Beyond the Forest, The Road to Camlann
- Warriors, Gods & Spirits from Central and South American Mythology, text by Douglas Gifford, illustrations by John Sibbick (from a gorgeous series of books on mythology I bought many years ago)
- Stardust, by Neil Gaiman (my first Gaiman!)
- The Eyre Affair, by Jasper Fforde
And if time allows, I’ll include a June reading of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, to celebrate the end of this challenge.
