I always enjoy reading Carl's blog and have participated in his R.I.P. (Readers Imbibing Peril) Challenge twice, however this is the first time I participated in his Once Upon a Time Challenge and I'm so glad I did. I haven't read fantastical literature for a while and participating in this challenge has once again reminds me how much I missed reading them.

Knowing my reading progress is slow, I had chosen to read one book for this challenge and that book is Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale by Carolyn Turgeon (my review here). I enjoyed the book very much; and what I liked is it featured two narratives aside from the mermaid princess, in which I find refreshing and also that it is great to know the other point of view from the human princess who is the other protagonist.

That said, I want to thank Carl for hosting this challenge and before finishing off this post, I'm very glad to read from Carl's blog that he will be hosting the R.I.P. (Readers Imbibing Peril) Challenge VI on September 1st so do make a note on your calendar should you decide to join.

    I still can't believe you hadn't participated before! It's such a great challenge isn't it? I still need to do my wrap up post but it may be a while :)

    I also read Mermaid. It was interesting, but I liked her other book better...

    It is a fun challenge. This year I read a couple of short stories for it. Mermaid sounds interesting!

    Glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully you'll sign up again next year. Out of interest how did you add the follow me on twitter/Facebook button?

    Thanks, everyone! As you can tell, I had fun participating in this challenge!

    Rhinoa - I will sign up again next year. :)

    As for the Twitter/Facebook button, all I did is to add on my Twitter/Facebook account links onto 'Design' under blog dashboard. Before that, you need to choose 'Picture' from 'Add a Gadget' from your 'Design' for adding those links.
