Shelf Discovery Challenge

I am completely failing several challenges and, yet, I feel compelled to join this one too. What's the definition of insanity? Never mind. This challenge just calls to me by dangling my childhood favorites in front of me. The books that I devoured as a girl are all fair game in this one and I have to take the bait!
Here's what the challenge is all about lifted directly from Booking Mama's post...

The Shelf Discovery Challenge will run for six months (November 1, 2009 - April 30, 2010). To join me in this challenge, all you need to do is grab a copy of SHELF DISCOVERY and pick out what six books you want to read (of course, you can read more than six!) Then, after you read a book, just write a "book report" to share your thoughts with others!

The titles I picked are mostly books that I "remember" that I LOVED but I am kind of sketchy on the details since it has been 30+ years since I actually read them! I wonder if I will still love them now. (The exception is A Little Princess which I have on my nightstand at all times and reread fairly often, at least the good parts.)

Here's my list...with the covers of my youth - when I could find them!

From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Harriet the Spy

Are you There, God? It's Me, Margaret

A Little Princess


Flowers in the Attic

You sound just like me! I haven't completed the first challenge, yet I keep signing up for them. I think this one will be lots of fun! We have several of the same books on our lists. Good luck!

I am so glad that you are joining us! You list of books includes many of my favorites!

Would you mind adding you name and link to the Mr. Linky:

YOu have some good books there! I don't do horror -- not even kids horror, so Flowers in the Attic is not one for me.

I just read Mixed up Files with my oldest daughter, and I love it as much as I remembered in childhood.

My daughter is currently reading Harriet the Spy and is ready to get her hands on the sequels.

I think I may be joining this one too. I have Shelf Discovery on reserve at the library, so once I get it and peruse it, I'll decide for sure.

Aha! For MONTHS I've been trying to remember the title of that book I read aloud to my kids in '02, about the brother and sister who hid out in the museum! None of them could recall me reading the book, much less the title...I was starting to think I'd imagined the whole thing. Maybe I should start some mixed up files of my own!
