Once Upon a Time Challenge

I just couldn't resist taking up this challenge as these type of books are really a favourite of mine.
This challenge was set up by Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings. If you click on the picture it will tell you all about it.
I will give a brief overview of the challenge. The books that need to be read in order to complete the challenge have to fall into the following categories, fantasy, folklore, fairytale or mythology.
There are various ways in which you can participate in the challenge and if you click on the picture above you will see all the different ways.
I intend to follow the Quest the First challenge, where I have to read at least 5 books that fit somewhere within the Once Upon a Time III criteria. They might all be fantasy, or folklore, or fairy tales, or mythology…or the five books might be a combination from the four genres.
I have a few books lined up to read already that will come into this challenge. They are:
1) The Tygine Cat by Inbalis Iserles
2) Fearless by Tim Lott
3) Wicked by Gregory Maguire
4) Valiant by Holly Black
5) City of Ashes by Cassandra Clay
I may go over the five and will just keep recording how many I do.
I am really looking forward to taking part of this challenge. Anyone else joining me?
