Turning Pages

Hello Everyone, it’s me, Marissa. I have been very good about sticking to my 50 book challenge for this spring and summer. Where did I get all the book ideas? I looked them up in Sarah Clarkson’s book Read for the Heart. This book was a great reference when I needed book ideas that would be fun to read during my challenge. 

The book I just finished was titled 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson. This particular book I did not find in Sarah Clarkson’s book, this book my mom found for me in World News Magazine. This Christian author made an adventure that was hard to put down. From sunrise to sunset I was looking forward to reading where I had left off. Henry York gets sent to his aunt and uncles house in Henry, Kansas when his parents are sent to a foreign country and don’t return. Henry gets the guest bedroom located in the attic and soon discovers a wall full of magic cupboards. Henry and his cousin Henrietta take many wonderful, and scary, adventures through this wall of magic cupboards. I recommend this book for older children since this book can be scary in some sections. 

So, how many books have you completed so far? Have you taken on a 50 book challenge as well? If you have any good reads that you recommend I would love to know! One of your books may end up on my list. The next book I will be working on will be Dandelion Fire by N.D. Wilson. It is the second book in the 100 Cupboards trilogy. Keep on turning those pages!

    I love your book reviews and think you are a writer in the making. I will get the book you wrote about and read it this summer to Joy. I appreciate you and your writing so much!

    Marissa, I am reading a book for adults by N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World. I like his fresh, poetic style. I didn’t realize at first that he is the son of Doug and Nancy Wilson (though I must admit I am not a fan of everything they do). I look forward to finding and reading N.D.’s 100 Cupboards series, thanks to your recommendation.
