A few highlights or lowlights of the book fest depending on how you take it:
A selection of Misty of Chincoteague novels by Marguerite Henry from my lengthy "horse phase."
The Black Stallion by Walter Farley-one of my favorites from times past, again with the horse thing.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit, a book I remember quite fondly-not so much the 2002 movie, however.
The Complete Pendragon Cycle by Stephen R. Lawhead which is still some good semi-historical fiction tracing the lives of Taliesin, Merlin and Arthur.
Aaaand, Help!: I'm Trapped in My Gym Teacher's Body! by Todd Strasser. An interesting concept-kind of kinky. I liked this book as an adolescent. This explains alot of things.
Please wrest me back to the present now.
1) You have been a posting maniac lately, and I love it.
2) I too was *horribly* disappointed by the film version of Tuck Everlasting. I read the book when I was a kid and - ever the Gilmore Girls fan - was excited that it starred Alexis Bledel. My friends who saw it before me all raved about how powerful it was.
I saw it and afterward was like -- hmm....okay...I suppose this was admittedly before Bledel learned how to act :)
Thanks. My dad told me I didn't "need" to bring my laptop and that I could use the home computer for email. I was like...um, no thanks, I'll be bringing my computer!
