Wrap Up Post: Once Upon A Time VII
At the beginning of April, I pledged to read five books that were either fantasy, folklore, fairy tale, or mythology for Once Upon a Time VII and then promptly started sucking at blogging. I haven't been reviewing all of my reads or keeping track of where I am with this challenge so let's refer to my (thankfully) up-to-date spreadsheet and see how I did ...
On April 2, I finished Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (fantasy, science fiction) and wrote about it for The Estella Society.
Also in April was a Stardust (re-)Read-Along (part one and part two -- fantasy and fairy tale). This was my first Gaiman of the season.
At the end of April, I read The Looking Glass Wars (fantasy).
In May I read, The Blood Binding (fantasy), Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures (not reviewed yet -- fantasy, mythology) and The Clockwork Princess (fantasy, steampunk).
June was enjoyable because of a re-read of The Last Dragonslayer (fantasy) and a first read of The Song of the Quarkbeast (also not yet reviewed -- fantasy) and, of course, an early read of The Ocean at the End of the Lane (fantasy, folklore, mythology and probably some fairy tale in there too ... I need to reread it to be sure).
So it looks like I managed to read nine fantastical books. Yay! Another successful season, especially with two Gaimans and two Ffordes.
What was your best OUaT read? Are there any of these that are on your TBR?
