Bibliophile #1

If you're feeling....
             like you want to remember what it was like to be a school-aged girl facing your own insecurities and still are
             like it's cold outside and you want to hunker down with a light but meaningful novel
             like you want a book that stories a coming-of-age and friendship-turned-to-first-love
             like it would be nice to imagine what boarding school in the Swiss Alps would be like
             like an innocent, young adult book with overtones of mystery and serious subject matters
             like reading aloud to your pre-teen daughter but secretly you enjoy it more

then you need to read a lesser-known book by Madeleine L'Engle titled And Both Were Young.

If I had to create an image board around this novel to capture a feeling or mood about this book, it would look something like this:

12345678910; 11

I hope you get a chance to read it and enjoy one of my favorite authors!


  1. Kim, I love your "classic" recommendation, truly! I will read it pronto, as soon as I get through the ten other books waiting. I think your blog is muy awesome. Is it o.k. for a 56 y.o. to like it?;)

  2. you had me at the sheep sweater.
