BOOKS | Weekend Finishing Up

Ah, weekends. This weekend hopefully will see me finishing up the Once Upon A Time Challenge with The Winter King and A Midsummer Night's Dream (fingers crossed).

I've also just checked out a copy of Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall from the library. 1001 Nights of Snowfall is a sequel to the Bill Willingham comic series, Fables, where characters from fairy tales have been driven from their Homelands into our world because of some dark conquering power, known as the Adversary. 1001 Nights of Snowfall takes place in the early days of the Fables series, just after the fables (characters from the fairy tales and folklores) are exiled from their homes. Snow White has to travel to Arabia as ambassador to her Fables community. She is kidnapped by a sultan who of course wants to marry her, then kill her. In the process of trying to save herself, Snow White plays Scheherazade, telling stories to the sultan for 1001 Nights.

Maybe I will just add it into the list of books to read for the challenge. Well, why not? I still have time.

Then again, the Once Upon A Time Challenge is the very first challenge I might actually complete, so maybe I shouldn't try to jinx it by counting chickens before they hatch?
