Once Upon a Time VII

OnceUponATime7Here we are again – the seventh year of the Once Upon a Time reading event, hosted by the most awesome Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings. This will be my second year participating, and I know from last year that a great chunk of what I read falls in the Fantasy genre. This is one of the funnest reading events of the year, as it is all about fun – and fantasy. You can catch all the details over at Stainless Steel Droppings, but the basics are that: It runs from March 21st -June 21st, any book, movie, or tv of the Fantasy genre counts, and there is a whole slew of other bloggers participating, so you can see what they are all up to in the Fantasy genre.

GaimanStardustI’ll be aiming for Quest the First, which is 5 books that fall into the Fantasy genre somewhere – so many subgenres! Also, Carl is hosting a read along of Stardust by Neil Gaiman in April. Here’s the schedule for that:

April 1-9th: Prologue through the end of Chapter 5.
April 10th: Discussion over first half (roughly) of the story

April 10th-16th: Chapter 6 through the Epilogue.
April 17th: Discussion over the second half of the book and wrap up.

This is one of my favorite books, and movies, so it will be great to share it with a group of people. If you are thinking to join the festivities, I highly encourage you to do so. Need more convincing? Check out Stainless Steel Droppings.

Dab of Darkness will also be hosting a read along of The Shadow of the Sun by Barbara Friend Ish, a high fantasy book, in April. There’s still time to join us, if you are interested.

    I’m hoping the library will find a copy of Stardust so I can join the fun! I haven’t read this one.

  2. The Once Upon a Time event sounds perfect for me! I will have to check it out.

    I love OUaT and I’m looking forward to our readalong. Probably won’t join stardust as I read it fairly recently although I could join in with the comments.

  4. I’m the same way–so much of my reading is fantasy, this is always an easy (and very fun!) challenge.
