Winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in Madeleine L’Engle’s classic Time Quintet. (Goodreads)
What a beautiful read! I listened to the audio book for this story. And it was so intriguing. I loved the characters and the plot was interesting to me. I think that this story has a deeper meaning.
It was written as a fantasy novel for the time, but it is something else indeed. I think everyone can find something to relate to in this book.
Apart from the magical elements in novel, the book holds a stronger meaning of love, friendship and family. And how the support from your friends and family can get you through the darkest of times.
I think that the darkness that is identified in the novel, is a darkness that is among all of us. Only love can break through the darkness and heals us.
This novel is beautiful with a lot of hidden meaning that is meant to be identified by the reader themselves.
Surprisingly enough this was not one of the books that I read in school, experiencing this for the first was something magical.
Madeline E’Langle has so many beautiful quotes but my favorite of these is the following one “the problem is, it’s not too difficult for kids, but that’s it’s difficult for grown ups. Too many grown ups tend to put themselves into little rooms with windows that don’t open and doors that are locked. And they want to close themselves off from new ideas.”
One of the challenges that I want to take on in the upcoming year would be to read through all my books. However, if I am brutally honest with myself, the likelihood of that happening is very unlikely. However, one step that I can take in order to get to this goal is buy less books. This is really hard for me, because I literally want to read everything.
I love buying books, I have always found comfort in going home with a stack of books. However, I realize that if I buy books I need to read at a faster speed and literally do nothing else but read in order to get through all my books.
So, what does that mean for my Goodreads goal? I have been pondering this for sometime. I have come to the decision that I will set my goal to 10 books and up it every ten books when I get there. This will just relieve the pressure of not reading enough and reading shorter books in order to achieve a goal. I would love to focus 2018 on reading books that I have been putting off due to size, or the mentality that I have to read a certain amount of books and end up reading nothing at all.
I know in the month of January I will be dedicating the entire month to reading “It” by Stephen King. And although, I don’t want to have a set “to be read” monthly list in 2018. I decided to dedicate January to “It”, because I don’t go back to school until the 29th. Also, I decided that I will be reading the e-book for this book because I tend to read e-books a little faster and it will definitely be easier to carry then the physical copy. (Just an observation- mass pocketbooks of “It” are impossible to track down.)
If you would like to join me on the adventure of reading “It”, leave a comment and I would love to discuss this book with you.
