Once Upon a Time VIII

The time has come once again for Carl V. 's Once Upon a Time challenge. This year, I vow to complete my quests. :)

This year, I'm going on Quest the Second - for which I must read one book for each of the four categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy, Mythology. Though, as always, I'm not quite sure what the difference between Fairy Tale and Folklore is. :)


  1. Blood Ties, by Garth Nix and Sean Williams

For the Short Story Quest, I'm going to start out by reading one fairy tale a day from Andrew Lang's The Grey Fairy Book, which I've been plugging through for a while now. It would be fun to finish up the book. I'll post my reviews of the tales on Sunday or Monday of each week during the challenge. 

The Grey Fairy Book
Week 1 

I don't watch a lot of movies or TV, but I probably should do more of this. (Yeah, I know that's a really weird thing to say, but it's true.) I'm going to try to complete Season 2 of Once Upon a Time, as well as a few movies.

  1. I'm hoping to complete my quest this year too! (For once.) I'm aiming for Quest the Second also, though I agree it's difficult to differentiate some of the categories. Actually, I'm really not sure what the difference is between folklore and fairy tale either! Happy reading!

    1. Yeah, I've arbitrarily decided for the purpose of this year's challenge I will consider Andrew Lang's Fairy books as "folklore" and fairytale retellings to be "fairy tales." :)


What do you think? I love getting comments!
