A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L’Engle: Open Road Integrated Media recently republished Madeleine L’Engle’s four Crosswicks Journal memoirs. As I saw book I, A Circle of Quiet, pop up on Netgalley, I turned to look at my bookshelves and saw the 1972 softcover edition sitting on my shelves, as yet unread. I had bought it at a library book sale several years before, and there it still sat.
It’s time, I thought. Providence! Madeleine L’Engle wrote such children’s classics and Newberry winners as A Wrinkle in Time and A Ring of Endless Light. She was a staple of my childhood and teenhood reading binges and remains one of my top 4 favorite authors ever. I’ll be reviewing A Circle of Quiet later this week!
Currently Reading & TBR Next
I’m continuing my Brandon Sanderson reading spree with Elantris as my bedtime reading, and I’m inhaling The Way of Kings during the daylight hours. I’m going to take the two weeks of Christmas and the New Year off from blogging so I can really focus on finishing the Stormlight Archives and start Arcanum Unbounded immediately following the Christmas and New Year celebrations. I love these holidays and I spend them with family and friends, usually in vast board game competitions with my husband, his brothers and our devious grandmother. (She cheats, I tell you. 90-something is not to old to cheat!) Anyway, after that, I’m planning to dive into a Christmas haul and enjoy the fruits of finally finishing The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance: Arcanum Unbounded. Phew, that’s a lot of pages, but I’m determined! And I’ll talk to you more on the other side of winter.
