Once Upon a Time V

once upon a time v

It’s time again for Carl’s Once Upon a Time challenge! As usual, we have gorgeous buttons, and I have an immense stack of fantasy books I would like to read. Since I have eight that I’ve pulled out which are sitting in front of me, plus my monthly Wheel of Time rereads, I think I’ll easily be able to pull off Quest the First, five books of any type of fantasy. I’ve not been doing many challenges this year, but I think I can make an exception for this one. I love fantasy, after all, so what’s not to like about reading more of it??

The choices I’ve given myself include:

  1. Dreams Underfoot, Charles de Lint
  2. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, N.K. Jemisin – I know I’ll read this as it’s a book club choice for April!
  3. Howl’s Moving Castle, Diana Wynne Jones
  4. Ill Wind, Rachel Caine
  5. The Native Star, M.K. Hobson – This was meant to be my first Nebula read, but I still haven’t gotten to it yet.
  6. Demon Angel, Meljean Brook
  7. Blood and Iron, Elizabeth Bear
  8. The Dubious Hills, Pamela Dean
  9. Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal – I don’t own this yet but I do plan to buy it, probably in May, which still works for this challenge!

And then, if I keep with my Wheel of Time reads, I should also be reading The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn, and The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan.

Where should I start? Are you joining in?
