I am going to do "Quest the First," mainly because my semester is heating up and I don't have much time right now to figure out specific books from each genre: Read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time II criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.
But that may well change...or I may go on to do both quests, just for fun, since fantasy is my true reading love. I've decided not to combine the books I chose with the Mythopoeic Challenge books since both challenges involve fantasy novels. 'Cause then it wouldn't be as much of a challenge, of course!
So for now (and this is, of course, subject to change depending on personal whim/availability of the books), my picks for the Once Upon a Time II challenge are the following:
- The Bronze Pen by Zilpha Keatley Snyder
- When Demons Walk by Patricia Briggs
- Waifs and Strays by Charles de Lint
- Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
- A Stir of Bones by Nina Kiriki Hoffman
