Norse Mythology- Neil Gaiman

Norse Myths are full of giants, trolls, dwarves and gods.  In addition, at least 3 of Loki's children the 8 legged horse Sleipnir, the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr would qualify as a monster.

 Actually I'm cheating a bit on this update:

  • I haven't QUITE finished And Then There Were None, but I expect to finish before bedtime tonight.
  • I'm moving Half Off Ragnarok from Monsters to Supernatural because Norse Mythology fits Monsters better.  
  • I'm also taking advantage of the short story ruling and counting individual tales in Norse Mythology as separate short stories and calling the Monsters square as read, even though I'm only partway through the audiobook.

 

Next Up:  The Thin Man group read, which I plan to count towards the Classic Noir square
