  2. I still need to finish the second PJO series, but I loved the first as a kid! I’m also ashamed to say that I never read the Phantom Tollbooth, or if I have I can’t remember it at all.


  3. “I wasn’t much of a reader when I was a kid,” Anjie reminds us as she drops copies of TKA Mockingbird, THG, and Sparks novels onto the desk in front of us. The rest of us stare at her apprehensively… (to be continued).

    Perhaps that’s why I’m living up these YA reads right now–to make up for lost time haha.

    I loved The Phantom Tollbooth! I didn’t have enough space on my list for it.;)

    I loved Judy Blume. Her books are fantastic. 🙂 To Kill A Mockingbird is on my list this week too!


  8. What's She Reading? says:

    Oh man, I used to be so obsessed with Tuck Everlasting! I had such a crush on the guy from the movie. I haven’t thought about that book in forever! That definitely means it’s due for a reread 🙂


  9. Freckle Juice! I haven’t thought of that book in years. I was such a Judy Blume fan when I was a child. I grew up reading her books. I never could get through Tuck Everlasting, no matter how often I tried. I wonder if I could now.

  10. So many good books here! Absolute loved The Lightning Thief and seriously want to reread the whole series. I also really want to reread The Giver, To Kill a Mockingbird (my favorite classic), and the whole Hunger Games trilogy. Tuck Everlasting is wonderful, too. 😀


  11. Sas says:

    I’m a late bloomer too – I’ve never read The Percy Jackson series and I’m finished university. I really need to read them! They look amazing.

  12. I love Freckle Juice!! My mom loved Judy Blume when she was a kid so she handed down all of her Judy Blume books to me. I totally forgot about Tucker Everlasting! I loved that one too.
