I always tell myself that I am going to go back and read some of the books that I loved from my pre-high school days. I wondered if those books would still have the same feel to me now that they did back then. I remember my first read of Little Women and how emotional it made me, the second time around it did not have that same impact. In fact, I felt it a bit preachy.
That is a long way of saying that I have to re-read some of my childhood favorites. I am going to take it easy on myself with this one since I have some lofty reading goals for 2015 to make up for 2014.
Déjà vu (re-read 4 books)
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding
- Black Girl, Lost by Donald Goines
- Are You There God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blum
- The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
