A Wrinkle in Time (Time Series, #1) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s funny that I have read almost every Madeleine L’Engle book but this series. For most people I’m sure these are what they read first. L’Engle has always been a favorite of mine and reading these books was like returning to a childhood friend, and I remember the feelings reading her books has always given me. I was impressed in this book of her references to faith and spiritual things. I think I may set these aside for me to read the whole series this winter to my kids.

The Graveyard Book The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A great, imaginative story! At first I was a little worried by the opening chapter and wondered about how dark this book was going to be. (My 10 year wouldn’t even let me finish reading Coraline to her because she thought it was too scary.) This story is very charming with a great main character who is raised by ghosts and “others” in a graveyard.
