Hey there 48 HBCers! I am eleven hours into my reading challenge and I have just finished my second book. Initially, I thought I would have more read, but that’s okay, I’m happy with my progress. First book that I finished was The Indian in the Cupboard, #99 on the Top 100 Children’s Books and part of my yearly blogging challenge. What an imaginative and well-written story! I especially liked the relationships between Omri and his brothers, but more about that later. My second book conquered was Numbers by Rachel Ward. Most definitely a disappointment, this one was. The plot was great and creative and the background and history of the characters well-thought-out, but the story just didn’t flow for me and was rudely interrupted by the vast amount of curse words. Now, this is a young adult novel, so a few are expected, but I believe I am just not used to the British vocabulary and the increased use of curse words. Anyway, on to the next book on my list, also #98 on the Top 100 list, Children of Green Knowe.
