CHALLENGE: Once Upon a Time IX

“Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
~William Butler Yeats

The 9th Once Upon A Time hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings is the true beginning of spring. The signs around here (we still have 4-5 feet of snow on our lawn and I'm not exaggerating!) are not conducive to actual spring. I've seen some posts on Facebook that say the spring birds are arriving and can't get at the ground. It's pretty depressing around here with just piles of old dirty snow.

Of course I'll read a book for this challenge this year. Something in the fantasy, folklore, mythology, or fairy tales area. There are none that I'm specially planning to read, but there are a few floating around that I might read, including a read-a-long of Little, Big by John Crowley hosted by Bellezza. I also have one of the YA Sync audiobooks from last summer, Torn from Troy to listen to. That's probably pretty high on my list actually.

What I Read:
1.Torn from Troy: Odyssey of a Slave - Patrick Bowman (audiobook)
2. Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl (audiobook)
