Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

Mutiny on the Bounty by Charles Bernard Nordhoff. Our pastor mentioned this story in church a while back and it sounded really interesting. It was a really good story, and I learned a lot about life on a ship.

The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. This was a pretty good story.

The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in Regency and Victorian England from 1811-1901 by Kristine Hughes. This was okay. However, I liked What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew better because that book used literature. I did learn a lot about Queen Victoria and her influence though.

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy. Lud love me, I Loved, loved, looooved this book!

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. This was okay, as are all Sarah Dessen's book, but I would rank this near the bottom of her books.

The Horse and His Boy by C.S Lewis. What can you say, it's C.S Lewis! There is a reason people love Narnia.
