How serendipitous: the day I finished The Book of Lost Things is the day I discover the King of Challenges, Carl V. Anderson himself, is hosting his third Once Upon A Time Challenge.
There’s a frenzy in the book blogging world, which is all abuzz over his announcement, because Carl does several things during his challenges:
- he creates a community of bookish fiends (or, I should say, “friends”?)
- he opens our eyes to new authors
- he explores the arts within the theme he’s chosen
- he entices participants with prizes
I’m not quite sure which fantasy novels I’ll chose, but I’m considering the following:
- Magyk by Angie Sage
- Inkspell by Cornelia Funke
- City of the Beasts by Isabelle Allende
- The Sandman by Neil Gaiman
- Watership Down by Richard Adams
- A Game of Thrones by by George R. R. Martin
- A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Galbadon
- Tuck by Stephen Lawhead
Rest assured, I’m in for the ride. As you should be, too.
