It's been a month since I've participated in Friday Finds, and I've missed it. I took a two-week vacation ("Christmas read-cation"), and I wrote up my reading challenges for 2015. Several of these books will meet my challenges.
I plan to read at least one children's classic this year, but there are a few other runaway children's books that I also want to tackle. I've never read Charlotte's Web, but I remember having it read to me during recess when it was too cold or too rainy to go out. I'd like to revisit the story. (Even though animal stories tend to completely undo me.)
Brown Girl Dreaming is a memoir written in verse form for children. That checks off three of my favorite boxes.
Wonder is a story that appeals to me, though I do hope it's not too preachy.
I picked up Driving Mr. Albert and What the Dog Saw at a used bookstore while on vacation. I've been meaning to read another Gladwell book for years, and I once owed a copy of Driving Mr. Albert, but decided I've never read it. Ha!
Occasionally, I like to read a book everyone else is reading. (It's a I-never-was-a-cool-kid thing.) So I think I'll read Amy Poehler's Yes Please this winter.
I recently read an advanced review of The Secret Wisdom of the Earth, and it sounds very good. It's fiction, and I'm trying to read a bit more of that.
And maybe this is the year I finally get to Jane Eyre. I know so many people love this book, but I anticipate a very depressing read. Am I right?
What did you add to your TBR over Christmas and New Year?
