Once Upon a Time III Challenge Wrap-Up

I am so bad about putting together wrap-up posts! I of course had a blast doing this challenge, as it focuses on my very favorite genre. Not only do I get to read and write about my favorite kinds of book, but I get all sorts of great ideas and suggestions of new books to add to my list. Which, despite the fact that the list and the pile are overwheming these days, is definitely a Good Thing.
For Quest the First, I read and reviewed the following:
Rogue's Home by Hilari Bell
The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
Flora Segunda by Ysabeau Wilce
The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman

For Quest the Second, books in different fantasy subgenres, I read and reviewed:
Fantasy: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Mythology: Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore
Folklore: Return of the Emerald Skull by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell
Fairy Tale: Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan

I regret that I did not manage to read more short stories for the short story weekends, but I did read and review:
"The Peony Lantern" by Kara Dalkey
Swords and Deviltry by Fritz Leiber

Many thanks to Carl and to all who participated and made this challenge so much fun!

    I never know what to say on wrap-up posts, either. I tend to wing it. Nice post and nice job with the challenge! I really enjoyed reading your reviews and getting new ideas for reading.

  4. Congrats on finishing - you read some good books there.

  5. Deslily - That is too bad about Mr. Linky. :-( But your post about it (or mention in the comments, I forget which) prompted me to get off my behind and do the wrap-up post. So thanks!

    Rhinoa - Thanks! I'll be curious to hear what you think of those when you get to them. :-)

    Fuzzycricket - Thanks! I have put so many books on my list because of this challenge. And I know I'll enjoy them because of the positive reviews from readers I trust. :-)

    Cath - Thank you! I had a great time, and I'm looking forward to next year.
