    My most favorite children’s book is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. And also The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I still have some of my books from my own childhood, so I can definitely do January. I can do them all, actually. October might be a bit of a problem. But in the words of Abraham Lincoln, ‘I shall endeavor to persevere.’

    Should be do-able. Just set my Goodreads Challenge 2019! This will be fun . . .

    I download or put in my wish list books I remember from my childhood, so I think I’ll pick up “Heidi”. Also, I’m always looking for new books and new authors written for a male tween, (I don’t give a book to a youth that I haven’t read). So the book I’m going to read is “Curse of the Black Avenger” by, Eddie Jones, this may not be what I’m looking for and I’ve downloaded it . I’ll let you know

    Delicious! By Ruth Reichl was a joy. It had a chef or two, a butcher, a love story, a surprise, and best if all, some history! Loved it! Not sure if it’s considered historical novel or not, but read it in March…thanks for interesting challenges. I have way too many books I want to read. 😀
