Challenge: Arthurian Challenge 2009-2010

Arthur Challenge Becky, you are a temptress! How do you keep coming up with these challenges that I can’t avoid joining?!

I took a class on the Arthurian legend/romances last spring and had a lot of fun; I’m still interested in the whole shebang, and I think it’d be fun to read some more contemporary books about the legend.

Sound interesting? Here’s the details:

When: April 2009 through March 2010

Goal: To read books starring characters found in or inspired by Arthurian legends. (King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Lady of the Lake, etc.) There are no set amount of books. Read one or two. Or read a dozen. You set the amount that feels good to you!

What about movies? What about graphic novels? What about comics? What about audio books? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. All of those things count. So though it says 6-12 books. It can be a variety of things–book, movie, tv show, comic book, graphic novel, etc.

Kids books. YA books. Adult books. All count.
What about series books? Or series books in all-in-one editions? I’m leaving it up to you.

What about short stories or poetry? Yes and yes. Anything really can go.

What about rereads? Sure why not!

I’m gonna aim for around 5-8, but I won’t limit myself if I wanna read more (or less, I suppose). My list will be below once I’ve read something that fits. Woo!

1. The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp – Rick Yancey
2. The Seeing Stone (Arthur Trilogy #1) – Kevin Crossley-Holland
3. At the Crossing Places (Arthur Trilogy #2) – Kevin Crossley-Holland
4. King of the Middle March (Arthur Trilogy #3) – Kevin Crossley-Holland
5. The Winter King – Bernard Cornwell

Challenge completed November 2009. Wrap-up post.
