Once Upon a Time VIII

onceup8275Carl does some of the best reading events around. I’ve participated in his R.I.P. challenge for two (three?) years running now, and this year I’ve decided to jump into his Once Upon a Time challenge, which asks readers to 1. Have fun! and 2. Participate by reading as few or as many books as they want that fall into one of the following broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology.

My plan is to join in by reading at least one book in any of the four categories as well as hopefully participating in the read-along of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in June.

I’m not sure yet exactly what I’ll be reading, with the exception of Violet Kupersmith’s The Frangipani Hotel, which I’m reviewing later this week. This is a book of short stories based on Vietnamese folk tales, so it segues nicely with the challenge.

If you have recommendations of books I should consider reading for Once Upon a Time, please feel free to let me know in the comments!

    Welcome to the challenge! This is my fourth OUaT, and I’ve had great fun every time. 🙂 I hope you enjoy your reading–those Vietnamese fairy tales sound interesting!

    That’s right! It is springtime, huh? I’m not sure I’ll play along this time as I’m actually trying to slow down my reading, but I might join in for Mid-Summer Night’s. I read it with the group a few years ago and it was a lot of fun.
