Have fun!

Sabrina The Book Lover | 388 comments Thanks for yet another challenge! I'm going to have a look tonight to see if I have any books which would fit these categories. Number 4 sounds challenging!

Not that difficult at all! Shelley Freydont has a book called Foul Play at the Fair, and there is Earlene Fowler's State Fair. I know I've seen a few others that would fit in Mount TBR. Winter fairs and Mardi Gras also count -- and at least one by Laura Childs, I think it was Keepsake Crimes, has a scene at Mardi Gras.

Oh! Jim and Joyce Lavene have an entire series set at a Renaissance Fair, first in the series is Wicked Weaves. Remember, too, that your books do not HAVE to be mysteries. ;-)

I'm not sure where you got your information, but Carnival ends at midnight on February 18, Ash Wednesday.

Nell | 1172 comments A couple of Donna Andrew's mysteries take place at a fair or festival: Some Like It Hawk and Hen of the Baskervilles. Her main character, Meg Langslow, is a decorative blacksmith who often participates in craft fairs so earlier entries also include scenes at fairs or festivals. If you haven't read any of her series, you're in for a delightful read.

Some Like It Hawk (Meg Langslow, #14) by Donna Andrews Hen of the Baskervilles (Meg Langslow, #15) by Donna Andrews

Carnival as religious holiday (Capital C), yes, they really finish on Ash Wednesday but if we're talking about a carnival day (small C), it's something totally different. No sense in saying that Ash Wednesday is Carnival Day.


message 7: by Sabrina (new)

Sabrina The Book Lover | 388 comments I was thinking of maybe reading Joyland for the book which is set at a fair/carnival... It's not exactly set at a fair, I think it's more like a theme park.
Would this book be allowed for that category?

Lynn, I said Carnival Day -- it's not referring to Carnival/Mardi Gras but to carnivals in general. And don't ask me why we're celebrating it in February instead of May or June when carnivals start making their circuits. I mean, they also have Ferris Wheel Day in February, which is one month I would NOT go up in one, considering how windy (not to mention cold) the month can be.

Thank you for the clarification. I think it might be a meaning-of-the-language issue. The word Carnival, particularly in connection with February or March dates is associated with Mardi Gras/Carnival to me, so I thought you had the date wrong. And since the date you listed is a possible date for Mardi Gras Day, I was doubly confused.

It's an odd time to celebrate state fair-type carnivals when the religious-related Carnival is actually be celebrated and there are few state fair-type carnivals on the calendar.

Marisa wrote: "Lynn wrote: "I'm not sure where you got your information, but Carnival ends at midnight on February 18, Ash Wednesday. "

I may have been a bit confusing with my original post. I know that Carnival is not on Ash Wednesday, but it does end at midnight on Ash Wednesday, which this year happens to be February 18. It's a tradition in New Orleans to see the police on horseback riding through the French Quarter declaring loudly that Mardi Gras/Carnival is over.

Yes, I know well Ash Wednesday (I'm Spanish). Here, we had a parade (it is mainly lost now, I believe) called "The burial of the sardine", for saying bye to joy and parties.

Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos also takes place at a fair.

Kylie Logan's Chili Cook-off series (Chili con Carnage is one of the two published so far) are set in a fair circuit too.

Just looked through my books for this challenge and I'm excited that I can use the next two Bubba books (by C.L. Bevill) on this challenge. I've been wanting to read them since I got them at Christmas time! :) Woo-hoo!!! Well, I think I can use #4 in that series... There is supposed to be a Murder Mystery Festival occurring during the book, so I hope at least one scene takes place there. ;) :)
