Once Upon a Time III

It is that time of year again. Spring is in the air and thoughts turn to fantasy, fairy tale, folklore and mythology. Yes, it is time for this, the third annual Once Upon a Time Challenge. What is the Once Upon a Time Challenge?

Well, if you do not know about it, I encourage you to follow the link below for an explanation:


On this site I ask that you submit links for the books you read and review for this challenge. Type your name and then the name of the book and the author in parenthesis. For example, if I read The Hobbit, I would type my entry as follows:

Carl V. (The Hobbit ~J.R.R. Tolkien) and then would submit my link directly to my review of The Hobbit. Feel free to email me at cvincent68 (at) comcast (dot) net if you have any questions. Otherwise, please enjoy. If you scroll down to the Once Upon a Time II post below, you make click the "here" link and see a list of novels reviewed for last year's challenge.

Well, I've read my one book for The Journey and finally got it reviewed here:

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

I was hoping to read more than one fantasy book this year, but it hasn't happened. Had a good time anyway and now I'm enjoying reading everyone's reviews. Thanks, Carl, for hosting this.

Jenny said...

I've just finished A Midsummer Night's Dream from Quest the Third, unfortunately i think i've ran out of time for my Quest the Second, and had been hoping to get further than the fairytale section, but exams have rather got in the way and i hadn't realised i'd ran out of time, but thankyou, because i really enjoyed this one :)
