Literary Love Linkup because this incorporates one of my most loved genres - Children's books - with one of my most loved things to do - make lists about books!
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I think I have a copy of this on my Kindle but I've never read it. In fact other than the movies my only exposure to this was in 4th grade when we deconstructed the "Jabberwoky" poem and replaced the nonsense words with real words. Way to take the fun out of it now that I think about it.
2. At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald
This was my grandmother's favorite book when she was a child and she actually got me a copy but for no other reason than basic contrariness I refused to read it. I actually just got it on Kindle when I looked it up a few minutes ago so at some point I will be fixing that.
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Before the Tornado was born I used to substitute teach a bit and any time I was in 1st grade I always ended up reading bits of this out loud but that's as far as I got. I've always avoided this and the movie because I know the ending.
4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
I loved both movies but have never read the book even with Emma and Eleanor were reading Dahl by the truckload.
5. & 6.I have never read anything by John Green or Sarah Dessen. A fact I know that would make many people gasp in disbelief.
7. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I have seen this book on pretty much every best of or favorites book list of 2013.
I'm sure there's more that for whatever reason have slipped through the cracks. This is only the children's/YA edition so who knows what I'd find if I started looking at categories like "Classics". I'm sure there's giant holes in my reading. There'll be another list tomorrow but that's part of a linkup so not nearly the same thing!
