6 books finished in 2017: A Wrinkle in Time

6 books finished in 2017

Someone recommended this book after The Silver Chair (thank you), and I realized that I’d never read the books that come after! These were a PERFECT pairing with the home-buying process, as they’d calm my brain in preparation for sleep each night. (Or, if I woke up in the middle of the night with house thoughts, I could easily return to this story with limited mental acuity.)

Also, the last time I’d read this as an adult, I was pretty angry about Meg and Calvin and the soulmate-ness of their relationship. I still find that to be odd, but I was able to get over it and focus on other aspects of the story this time. (Update: it was actually the second book in the series that led to such a rant, which explains why I’d not continued reading last time!)

I think my main problem with these books is that they are so much less dense/deep than her non-fiction. She shares so much of her heart  and her life through essays, and these books do not capture any of that for me. Le sigh.

  1. Oh goodness, I loved these books growing up. It’s been a long time since I reread. I clicked over and ready your review if Wind in the Door, and your response totally makes sense, as an adult. That one’s always been my least favorite for some undefined reason. Swiftly Tilting Planet is my most favorite, though I can’t really remember why. I’m sure at least partly to do with time travel. I’ve always liked time travel in books.
