Follow Me Friday #26

     So, Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and AlisonCanRead. It's where you answer the weekly question and then link yourself and you go and check out other blogs of your interest, helping to support out endeavors as a community. Also, do it just because it's fun! :)

Q:  Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

A:  I think that I would probably be teaching a third or fourth grade English class! :)  As you can see I'd have a really hard time choosing!!!  But those are some of the books that have stood the longest test of time for me.  I would love to share them with children, who would love them as much as me (hopefully).


     I can't wait to see your imaginary syllabi (yes, I am a nerd! LOL) and I hope you have a great Friday!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)  I do prefer Bloglovin' follows, but am also trying to build up my Facebook and Twitter followings (especially my Facebook page).  All the links are on the right sidebar! <3


  1. Oh noo...I felt so guilty about this post. Narnia is still buried under my TBR pile.

  2. I haven't read many of these so it looks like I may have to take your class! I do love Narnia though, such a magical story that can spark kid's imaginations! :)

  20. Terabithia is so sad but it would show students the power of the imagination. Here's mine Backchatting Books F&F

  21. Love your picks - especially Bridge to Terabithia and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I agree that Terabithia the book is really sad, but I think it's pretty important for kids to know that other kids have to live through that sometimes. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF.
