To be young at heart...

Yes, it's true. I have found another book challenge to be a part of. This time, the 2008 Heart of a Child Challenge found at Becky's Book Reviews. Considering I only read like eighteen books last year, the fact that I keep finding and joining challenges could be laughable, but I think even if I don't complete everything I sign up for, at least I tried.

Anyway, the rules for this challenge are fairly flexible which is super nice. Just choose 3-6 books to read between February 1st and July 14th. Books should all be rereads, ones read and loved by you when you were a child (so, up until you were 18). Since I've got a lot on my plate at the moment (reading wise) and really should be spending my time job hunting instead of reading (it's hard to pay rent when one is unemployed!) I have chosen only three books.

My List:

Dealing With Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede
The Last Silk Dress - Ann Rinaldi
Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson

All three are books I loved as a child. The Last Silk Dress introduced me to my favorite genre of historical fiction, and Treasure Island has been my favorite book since I was ten (though I haven't read it in a few years, I currently own seven copies). It will be a lot of fun to go back and reread these books that began my love of reading.
