It's That Time Again!

It's Spring, which means it's time for Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge! I've been quite absent on the blogging front, but I have been reading, so I hope signing up for this challenge can help get me back on blogging track!

I'm signing up for Quest the First, which means I will try to read five books that fit into the category of fantasy, fairy tale, folklore, or mythlogy. I'm tentatively thinking that I will choose from this list:
1. The Once and Future King, by T.B. White (which will also count for A Century of Books)
2. Daughter of the Forest, by Juliet Marillier (I've been wanting to reread this, so now is the perfect time!)
3. The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey
4. The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkein (I need to read this before the movie comes out, so it's perfect!)
5. Neverwhere, by Neil Gaman (I've never read any Neil Gaman *ducks*, and Carl is doing a group read of this, so it seems like the perfect opportunity!)
6. Green Heart, by Alice Hoffman
7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, by J.K. Rowling
8. The Queen of Attolia, by Megan Whalen Turner

I'm also signing up for the Quest on Screen. This will give me a good excuse to gush over ABC's Once Upon a Time. It will also give me some motivation to rewatch The Lord of the Rings sooner rather than later; some Lost, Doctor Who, and Pushing Up Daisies might show up, too.
