Shelf Discovery Challenge!

I've decided to participate in my first-ever blog challenge!

The challenge: Booking Mama's Shelf Discovery Challenge

From the contents of Shelf Discovery (see below), choose 6 books to read between now and April. Then read them. Then write about them.

The book - Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading

Based on a column from, author Lizzie Skurnick revisits our favorite middle- and high- school reads, from Ramona Quimby to the daring Judy Blume. These are more than mere stories, she urges us to consider, bringing into light the life lessons learned in each.

My picks - 3 re-reads, 4 new reads (yeah, yeah, that's more than 6)

1) From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (first read)

2) The Secret Garden and/or A Little Princess (re-reads)

3) Flowers in the Attic (seen the movie, but first read)

4) Jacob Have I Loved (first read)

5) Little House on the Prairie (re-read)

6) Forever (first read)


  1. Great list! It's just too hard to limit yourself to 6!

  2. How 'bout Pagemaster? And all those Brian Jacques books? I think I'd include Wind in the Willows, and The Chronicles of Narnia.


Thanks for stopping by!
