Joining: Once Upon A Time VII

(Art by Melissa Nucera)

Hosted by Carl V from Stainless Steel Droppings, the Once Upon A Time VII challenge is a yearly reading and/or viewing event that highlights four categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology. I am a few days late joining, the challenge began on March 21st and ends on June 21st. Participants are given choices to make this a fun event: they may read one book, one book from each category, 5 books from a chosen category, fulfill all of the above, and/or join the Quest on Screen where they can discuss television and films that fall under the required categories.


Since this is my first year participating in the Once Upon A Time Challenge, I decided to begin small and chose to join The Journey. This choice gives me the freedom to read one book from any of the four different categories, but if I choose or have the time to read more, then that works out too!

I'm shooting for a Fairy Tale. :)

  1. Fairy tales are always a good choice! I usually look on this as a fantasy challenge with an emphasis on fairy tales...but that's just my interests. :) I hope you find a good one to read!

    1. Oh yes! I agree. This challenge has that fantasy feel. It makes me want to read a fairy tale (or two). :)

    1. Thanks Nath! I missed this challenge last year and regretted it later. So, this year I will read at least one book, if not more. We'll see what I can manage. :D

  3. I'm doing this challenge, too, Hils. I have my post mostly written up, but I'm working on my Iceland post first. :) Did you see Carl's doing a read-along of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, too? That counts as a fairy tale, I think. No pressure. ;)

    1. Oh great! I saw the post for the Stardust read-along too, but I'm late and don't have the book yet. I don't think I'll get it in time. :(
