What I Read Last Week:
The Gathering by Isobelle Carmody (1001 Children's Book)
Whispers in the Graveyard by Theresa Breslin (1001 Children's Book)
Nothing to Be Afraid Of by Jan Mark (1001 Children's Book)
Where Angels Fear to Tread by E. M. Forster (Classic)
I had the crazy idea to participate in one of bloggers' favorite yearly events, R.I.P., Readers Imbibing Peril, by reading a few of my 1001 Children's Books that I have been avoiding. Why have I been avoiding them? I get spooked by scary books, and lots of the ones I have left to read are scary books. But why not try some scary kids' books? How scary can kids' books be? So I did make my way through three creepy books from the 1001 Children's Books list last week. Maybe I'll squeeze in a few more before October is over.
What I'm Reading Now:
The Bee Sting by Paul Murray (Booker Finalist)
Cuore: The Heart of a Boy by Edmondo Di Amicis (1001 Children's Book)
What an Owl Knows by Jennifer Ackerman (Nonfiction)
