Once Upon A Time There Was A Reading Challenge...

Spring is over and summer has officially begun and that means it’s the end of the Once Upon A Time Reading Challenge.  I had a wonderful time with the books I read and I enjoyed seeing what others were reading.  I discovered some new books that have been added to my TBR pile and I was able to talk about the books I love.  I want to thank Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings for hosting such a great event.  I’m already looking forward to next year.  And even though the Once Upon A Time Challenge is over, I still have the Summer In Discworld going strong, so all is not lost.  Below is a list of books, an animated series and the one movie I enjoyed during this challenge:

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed

The Thief of Bagdad starring Douglas Fairbanks 

The Gammage Cup by Carol Kendall

The Whisper of Glocken by Carol Kendall

The Firelings by Carol Kendall

Avatar The Last Airbender - The Promise Part 1 Graphic Novel

Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (Group Read)

Guards! Guards! By Terry Pratchett

The Legend of Korra Animated Series (Spoilers if you have not been keeping up)

I didn’t embark much into fairly tales, mythology or folklore so maybe next year.  I committed to Quest the First, which was to read 5 books in each of the categories.  I think I met my goal and then some.

Overall I had a great time and a big thank you to everyone who stopped by for a visit and a chat.  I also found some new blogs to visit and I look forward to seeing what they are reading so we can chat some more.  I recommend taking a look at the review site here.  If you’re looking for a good book to read, I’m sure you’ll find it there.

  1. The coming gap in my challenge-life was a big motivator for the Summer in Discworld challenge. :) Glad it's serving that purpose for someone else too!
