Julie of Booking Mama is hosting a great challenge. Participants get a chance to either revisit favorite YA books or catch up on the ones we may have missed.
Yep, I'm signing up for the Shelf Discovery Challenge. All I have to do is pick six books that are featured in the book Shelf Discovery and agree to read them over the next six months. Sounds fun and easy, doesn't it? I have from November 1 to April 30 to read some really great childhood novels.
Wondering what I found to read? I have five novels from the book and one "cheater" novel. Let me explain: I haven't read the Austin series by Madeleine L'Engle. The second book is the series is on the official list of Shelf Discovery books. I have a sad problem: I cannot read books out of order, so one of my six books is the first in that series: my cheater. The Louisa May Alcott and E. L. Konigsburg books are repeats for me, but the other four are new.
There are some terrific choices, including two books from the Little House series. I almost picked them but ultimately decided that I do not want to review them or write about them here; I'll just let my reading of that series be noncritical.
