So here it is, my first attempt at creating a meme. Bear with me and please join in! :)
This week's theme: a book you loved as a child.
We all have a book that we read over and over again as a child and still think of fondly as an adult.
The main reason I love this book is that it was the first one I read that showed me it was OK and indeed a good thing to have an imagination. I was a daydreamer as a child and always felt that this was a bit of a bad thing, that reality should be preferred to fantasies. A Little Princess and Sara Crewe taught me that it could be a strength, and that there is something to be said for having an active imagination. I also enjoyed how Sara was a bit flawed - she flew into a temper easily and thought a bit too much of herself. It made her much more real and relatable. All of the characters were well developed and I also loved the historical feel of the book.
I went on to read all of Frances Hodgson Burnett's books and whilst I liked them all, A Little Princess always remained my favourite.
