Growing up I didn’t know fantasy existed–ok I knew, but not as a “genre” I just knew I liked that magic stuff….
One of the things I used to do was “read out” a book. That is reading a book so often that I had it practically memorized, and I was beyond reading it anymore–it was in my head forever.
The books that I read out and therefore molded me were…
Wrinkle in Time Quintent by Madeline L’Engle
Narnia series (read in the original publishing order Lewis was wrong to reorder)
Wizard of Oz (the 1st 7 I didn’t own the others)
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Anne of Green Gables
Note how none of these were singular instead of the Hobbit….amazing how these books will forever be in my head….
