I've discovered that I'm completely unknowledgeable about fantasy. I haven't read a lot and what I have has mainly been children's fantasy, of the Harry Potter or Narnia ilk. I have some fantasy on my shelves, like the Tales of the Otori series by Lian Hearn. Inkheart and Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. And the Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix waiting to be read, among some others but again they are mainly YA fantasy. I do have a Guy Gavriel Kay book. He's for adults I believe. And I've read Gaiman's Neverwhere. I'm currently reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and thoroughly enjoying it, by the way. And there are probably a few more books here that could be classified as fantasy. And I keep meaning to read more fantasy but other books always seem to take precedence.
Carl has of course launched his tempting Once Upon a Time Fantasy Challenge. But this is where the problem lies. I have a hard enough time separating fantasy from science fiction. Never mind sub-genres! Trying to figure out which categories (Mythology, Fairytale, Folklore, Fantasy) the books on my shelves fit into was starting to make my brain hurt. Hey, I never said I was clever! So I gave up. I honestly don't really have time right now what with all the other challenges I'm doing but I was curious all the same. For the time being I think I'll stick with Jonathan Strange, and then have my Harry Potter binge and with any luck, toss a bit of fantasy, without puzzling over which type of fantasy it is, into the mix down the road. I'm looking forward to reading the reviews though and getting ideas for possible future reads. And I'll be cheering you all on from the sidelines.
