52 Book Challenge: Week Seven

Re-reading A Ring of Endless Light was great fun.  Even though it is, at best, a young adult novel, I got caught up in the characters.  Madeleine L’Engle was an amazingly talented writer.  My plan was to return to novels that make me feel less like a cheat and more like an adult this week.  However, Ring was so good that I’ve chose to read the sequel this week.  The book is called Troublina Star and is the last in L’Engle’s Austin series.  Highly recommended.  As an adult, I can analyse the characters with a sense of nostalgia.  Remember the world as a teenager?

For those of you who are also working through this challenge– if you find yourself slowing down or feeling like leaving the challenge, do try reading a very simple and easy book.  For me, at very least, it was just the trick for re-gaining momentum.

This does make me feel a bit of a cheat, but I’ll push through the shame one more week and read another novel well below my age group.  😉
