It is that time again! Time for Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge, my very favorite challenge of the year; the perfect way to welcome spring.

There are at least 8 books that I've been adding to my TBR list for this challenge. I will look for it later. Some of the books on my list are a result of authors I read for this one last year and that I want to re-visit, some are titles picked up from reading other blogs.

Have to get on the road, but when I get back, the list must be located, the version of the challenge decided upon, and a library visit scheduled.

One of the books is already in my stacks: Valente's In the Cities of Coin and Spice which I pre-ordered last year after reading The Orphan's Tale: In the Night Garden which I reviewed here. It took a great deal of will power to hold Coin and Spice for this challenge.


  1. I've been looking forward to this challenge too (not that I need more to join - ha,ha). I have a tentative list so I'm going to try and post it tonight. Have fun coming up with your choices - can't wait to see what you'll choose.

  2. Oh I think that's one of the most delicious titles I've heard (In the Cities of Coin and Spice) I have been a little overdosed on fantasy and fairytales lately, but I may have to pick this one up!

  3. Iliana -- I'll be looking for your list! We never outgrow the need for fairy tales and fantasy, do we?

    Esther -- Do read In the Night Garden first, but maybe you should take your time before another dose of fairy tale!
