The Arthurian Literature Reading Challenge 2014

“I know I love you before I met you.” That's my relationship with King Arthur. Honestly, I have never read anything officially Arthurian. Last year I drag myself through Spenser's The Faerie Queene, and enjoyed the first Book, while the second book felt endless. But hey, I was going to give it another try.

And then I read that Howling Frog Books is hosting an Arthurian Reading Challenge. That's when I thought, “I'm going to love it!” And here I am, thinking about what books I'm going to read for the challenge.

I don't want to be over-ambitious with my picks, so just a few, not more (and I wish these were much thinner too).
  • Le Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory
  • Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser
  • Maybe Idylls of the King by Tennyson
That's it. Hope I'll be able to finish these. Is it to high to aim for the Knight level? Let's see.


  1. Welcome, Lemon Tree! I'm glad you'll be joining us. :) We are going to have a great time!

  2. Woow... My only encounter with King Arthur is TV Series by BBC, Merlin, that ended two years ago. I'm interested to read a book by Geoffrey Mornmouth. But I still delay reading it :D
