This is Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge. It began on Friday, March 21st and runs to Friday, June 20th: Midsummer Night’s Eve. Joining this challenge means you are participating but not committing yourself to any specific number of books. I'm aiming to complete "Quest the First "which is to read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time II criteria of fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or your five books might be a combination from the four genres.
These books are on my to-be-read list already and fit into these categories:
Dante’s Descent into Hell, translated by Dorothy L Sayers
The Chrysalids by John Wyndham Finished see here
The Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Star Wars by George Lucas
Helen of Troy by Margaret George
