Challenge completed. This is also the last open challenge which isn't of the perpetual nature, IE series and bookshelf.

Yes but I did change U from Unicorn to Underwater because I simply couldn't find anything with Unicorns I wanted to read minus a HP reread which I wasn't up for.

The main unicorn book I think of is a spoiler, since the fact that someone is a unicorn-shifter is kept secret for half the book... last year a bunch of people read The Last Unicorn, and I think I stumbled into a unicorn when we read Dragonlance Chronicles...

I looked for hours and couldn't find anything. Dragonlance series vary in quality dramatically so I wasn't up for that. I read a lot of those years ago.

Unicorn! There are other books but it's harder to figure out when it's not in featured in a blurb. =)

It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn?

It is???

Virginie | 5795 comments Wait, I've got another. Robots vs. Fairies

That's so bad the CW wouldn't host the made for TV version.
