While I really don't need to add another challenge to my plate, I have to admit that this one appeals to me in many ways. First, I love fantasy, second, I love folklore, third I love mythology, and last I adore the play Midsummer's Nights Dream. So it is a win win situation.
The challenge is hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings and I adore the banner. The art work is amazing. You can read more about the artist at the host's blog along with the various categories for the challenge.
I will be attempting Quest the Third, which requires me to read five books that fit into fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or five books that might be a combination from the four genres. The other requirement for this Quest is to read A Midsummer's Nights Dream. I have loved this play since I was a kid. I actually read it and performed the play when I was in eighth grade. (I played Helena one night and Peter Bottom on another night), what a hoot.
Here a few titles I am considering this challenge.
The Magician by Leo Grossman
Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn
Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George
Flight of the Dragons by Susan Fletcher
Mira, Mirror by Metie Ivie Harrison
If you read a lot of fantasy I would urge to check this challenge out. The challenge runs through June 20 so don't wait too long.
