March options. . .

So, I figure I should be making a decision as to what our next joint literary adventure should be. I am not finished yet with "Northanger Abbey," so I am having a hard time choosing. There are so many books out there that I have always wanted to read, but have never had a chance, or the "push" to do so. I have narrowed it down to three, and I would like some input please.

First of all is "The Scarlett Pimpernell." The book I read before "Northanger Abbey," was a Victorian era spy novel and I thought this might be fun since I loved the other modern book so much.

The next thought is "The Wizard of Oz." I love a lot of the adaptations and I have always wanted to try reading the original book(s), but have never taken the time.

My third idea came to me as we watched "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory," in class today with my kiddos. I grew up on the movie and can quote the entire thing, but have never read the book(s). So Perhaps "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory," might be fun?

I have also thought about, "The Woman in White," and "The Picture of Dorian Gray." What excites you guys of theses options? Does anything spark your fancy?

P.S. all of the pictures are hyperlinks to their Amazon listings in case you want to find out more about them.


  1. Those all sound awesome. I quickly thought of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and The Picture of Dorian Gray because I own those books. But then Cherie read The Scarlet Pimpernel, and absolutely loved it, so I like the idea of that too. Grumble too many choices, but I might read two of them, because I read fast and get bored easily! I'm excited to discuss our book so read quickly. I will be posting most likely tomorrow!

  2. LOVE Scarlet Pimpernel! One of my favs! Also loved The Woman in White.
