Another outstanding book of fantasy from Madeleine L’Engle. More centered on biology than I personally would like, but a nice adventure.
I’ve noticed that these past two books are hard to put down, but also that they don’t really need to be read in order. The only reason for that is the kids’ ages. But that’s not even really important.
“Wait until tomorrow to find what tomorrow holds.”
“It is the nature of love to create. It is the nature of hate to destroy.”
“Time isn’t…important. All that is required of you is to be in the Now, in the moment which has been given us.”
“For want of a nail the show was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; for want of a horse the rider was lost; for want of a rider the message was lost; for want of a message the battle was lost; for want of the battle the war was lost; for want of the war the kingdom was lost; and all for want of a horseshoe nail.”
Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
