ReadAThon Hour 2 Mini Challenge

Mini Challenge hosted by Elizabeth over at Miss Wisabus

TOP 3 Children's Stories

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak ~ I love it so much I can't see the movie, as I am afraid it will ruin the original.

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech ~ I read this in college and LOVED it.  I wonder how I would've reacted differently if I would've read it as as a child.  I just related to the story on so many different levels and it brought tears, which is always an indication to me of a good book!

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert C. O'Brien ~ I don't remember what I loved most about this story because I read it as a child.  I definitely need to revisit it as an adult!  I just know it has stuck with me all these years and I always have the urge to pick it up and read it again.


  1. Just stopping by to cheer you on! Looks like you have some great books picked out for the read-a-thon!

  2. I've heard good things about Walk Two Moons but still haven't read. I loved NIMH as a child!

  3. Thank you Kate! Appreciate it! I just wish I had time to go around and feast on everyone's blog and do every single mini challenge. I'd get no reading done though!

    Ronnica, I loved Walk Two Moons. Definitely one of my favorites!

  4. How is your reading progress? I am here to cheer you on as an official cheerleader. Go Trish, Go Trish, Be Reading, Keep Reading, Yeah Book Lovers.

  5. Thank you for the cheers! I feel like I'm reading so slooooowwwwww. I can't believe we are already starting on Hour 8.
