Currently reading, 7/21/2017

I'm a big reader. It can be hard for me to find time (and motivation) to read a lot while I'm taking classes, but I try to find a few minutes when I can, especially over the weekend.

When I was a little kid, I used the go to the library and get so many books that when I stacked them on my lap, I could rest my chin on them. One of my favorites as a kid was A Wrinkle In Time. It's a book that defies genres, I think - there's science fiction/fantasy, but I certainly wouldn't call it a fantasy book. I also really liked that even though I got it from the kids section of the library, it didn't feel like it was written for a kid - it had some pretty complex themes!

I saw the trailer for the movie adaptation of the book, which I'm really excited for. You can watch it below - I know that it's a short clip, but I think it really captures the feel of the book. And it has a pretty amazing cast!



The trailer got me nostalgic for the book, so I decided it was time for a re-read. I think that I'm enjoying it just as much as I did when I was a kid, and it's fun to experience it from a totally different point of view. I highly recommend reading it for the first, or second, or third time!
