Once Upon a Time Wrap Up

I won the Grand Prize for completing the Once Upon a Time challenge, so I am pretty excited! It was early in the morning and I clicked the prize envelope and was shocked to see my name there. For some reason I was thinking I was not eligible to win, it was really early and I was tired. I really liked this challenge, as fantasy is quite easily my favourite genre. A huge thanks to Carl for such a great idea.

The books I read for this challenge were:

1. Dragons of the Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
2. Storm Front by Jim Butcher
3. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
4. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
5. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
6. Flight of the Nighthawks by Raymond Feist
7. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
8. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
9. Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
10.Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong
11.The Briar King by Greg Keyes
12.Magician: Apprentice by Raymond Feist

  1. Congratulations Kailana!

    I look forward to next year as well. It was such a great challenge.

  2. Congratulations, Kailana! You definitely deserve the top prize. :-) I enjoyed reading each of your reviews as you posted them. You have good taste in books. :-)

  3. I am so jealous you won, but congratulations :) It looks like you enjoyed the challenge as much as I did. I can't until next year when I can do it again. I love Fantasy, it's the perfect escapist fiction.

  4. A HUGE congratulations to you on winning the prize. You deserve it! What a prize, huh? Carl sure does know how to put a prize package together. This was such a fun challenge...I'll miss it...

  5. Thanks everyone. I am SO excited about my prize, I keep telling everyone about it. My mother actually works at the post office, so she is probably getting the hint to watch for it so I can have it as soon as it comes in! This means that I will get it immediately and not have to wait for slow postal service people... not that they are all slow, my mother isn't... Anyways, haha, funny you mentioned being jealous Rhinoa. I was actually thinking the same thing when I clicked the Neil Gaiman prize pack, for some reason I did not think that I was eligable for the grand prize (it was early), so I thought my chances were over. I think that was good, though, because then I was equally surprised when the next envelope said my name! haha, I have unveiled my winning like ten times since, I like clicking on the card. :)

  6. Oh, and my prize package is actually already being partly claimed. Apparently the signed picture I am getting used to do art for Magic the Gathering, or so I am told by Tom. He didn't ask for it, but I imagine I will frame it and give it to him. I think the picture is cool, but he will appreciate it ten times as much. :)
