It’s the first day of spring! And that means that thoughts are lightly turning towards love, pilgrimages (see Chaucer), and fairy tales! If you were here last year, you may remember the Once Upon a Time challenge, hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings (home of the Sci Fi Experience too).
The plan: read fairy tales, fairy tale retellings, fantasy… And since that’s pretty much what I DO, I’m so excited! I’ve not read many fairy tale retellings lately, so I’ve got them lined up. In fact, I started (re)reading Robin McKinley’s Rose Daughter this morning. 🙂 Technically the challenge starts tomorrow, but, you know, close enough. I’ll still be reading it tomorrow.
There’s a whole list of Quests, which I selected and pursued last year. This year I’m embracing the casual nature of Carl’s “experiences” and deciding to let the chips fall where they will. I’ll go for those books I have lined up, and see how it sorts out in the end.
So, keep your eye out for more fairy tales–coming soon!
