Once Upon A Time VII

Before Once Upon A Time VII, which began Thursday, March 21,

there was Once Upon A Time VI:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and the very first Once Upon A Time Challenge:
 
 
I have participated in each one of these challenges, which have re-opened my eyes to the beauty of fantasy, fairy tales, and mythology. This is one of the very reasons that blogging about books is so exciting: through the ideas of others, we are challenged to expand our own reading horizons.
 
I have inserted the link to each challenge because they are a wonderful source of titles should you be at a loss as to what to open first. As for myself, this year I think I will focus on the Stardust read-along, the children’s classic novel Peter Pan, and Murakami’s After The Quake.

“I want to write about people who dream and wait for the night to end, who long for the light so they can hold the ones they love.”   ~Haruki Murakami           
 
 
What will you read?

  1. Peter Pan! It's beena few years since I've read that. Perhaps I should pick it up again. I am sure you will enjoy all three books (although, that might be a little too confident, I know very little about the Murakami book).

  2. You know I don't think I have ever actually read Peter Pan. OUAT III was my first one and at the time I didn't even think I liked “those kinds of books”. Ha. I look forward to your review of After the Quake. I'm still working on finishing 1Q84.
