i completed the fantasy challenge!
i was initially not going to do it as i didn’t have any money to buy any new books and i still had some way to go to get through my pile (there was also only one fantasy book on my pile…). but then funny things happened.
i found neil gaiman’s “angela” for a pound in a charity shop, a friend gave me “kafka on the shore” for my birthday and i bought the new terry pratchett (i just had to! i love the watch!). and hey presto i had 3 fantasy books. then when i read carl’s review after he’d reread coraline (and carl’s general neil gaiman promotion campaign) i decided i could reread “coraline”.
this was the first challenge i had done and i really enjoyed it. it was really cool to be a part of something – to know everyone was reading the same genre with you, and celebrating fantasy with you!
it was also fun to immerse myself completely in the realm of fantasy for a while. my life has felt a bit dream-like lately…!
i’ve posted reviews of “coraline” and “angela” and will do for the other two soon.
