I've wrapped up the Once Upon a Time II Challenge and just in the nick of time. Originally I only committed to The Journey which involved reading one book. After a while I decided to read one book from each of the four categories. Here is my completed list with brief thoughts:
The Princess Bride by William Goldman - I'm considering this fantasy since it includes a giant, a pirate and an evil king. It was just as fun as the movie.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight trans. by J.R.R. Tolkien - a folktale in connection with King Arthur. This poetic epic was my favorite.
The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White - another folktale about King Arthur that I adored.
A Wonder Book by Nathaniel Hawthorne - a book of reworked mythology I enjoyed with my children.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall edit. by Kate Bernheimer - a compilation of essay from famous women writers about the fairy tales they love and hate.
I still plan to read A Midsummer Night's Dream but not in time to count for this challenge. I want to refresh my heart of its magic before seeing it performed in celebration of my 15th wedding anniversary next month. Yes, I am one lucky lady.
P.S. Thanks Carl once again for a fun and enlightening challenge.
