So I apparently love challenges. I also apparently don’t always do so well at them, because I’m one hell of a starter, but a pretty poor finisher. I keep trying, though so I get props for either determination or stupidity. It could go either way.
But the latest challenge should actually be fun, meaning that I will probably not complete it because I also apparently have a puritan streak a mile wide which whispers evily in my ear “If you are having fun, you shouldn’t be doing it.” I’m working on learning to stuff a dirty sock in that old bat’s pie hole but there isn’t always a dirty sock handy when you need it.
The Roof Beam Reader has given us another challenge which is right up my alley this spring, and the fact that I can get double credit for another challenge I’m doing is a bonus! Even that old puritan bat can’t argue with that!
Therefore, I give you the Magical March, A Magical Realism and Fantasy Event!
The premise is simple, you read a quantity of books in the specified genre, and you get a nifty title based on how many you read. Even one counts, but I’m going for Sorceress status, mostly because being called a Sorceress will give that old Puritan bat living in my head an aneurism. 3-5 books qualify for Sorceress status, and the books I’m reading for the TBR pile challenge will qualify! Take that!
My chosen books are:
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Dragonsdawn by Anne McCaffrey
A Gift of Magic by Lynn Kurland
Lady of Light and Shadows by C.L. Wilson
I debated about the fifth book because rumor has it Game of Thrones is not really light reading, but we’ll see…
This is my latest challenge, and I’m looking forward to starting. A couple of these have been burning a hole in my nightstand for a long time now.
Just don’t tell that old Puritan bat I’m planning on having fun. I wanna watch her flip out when that Sorceress badge goes up on my blog! Mwaaahhhh!
And really! How the hell is it nearly March already?
