In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here!
By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!
This week I want to know….
Did you have a favorite book as a kid? (before the age of 13)
If so, what was it and what was it about?
My favorite book from my childhood is Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war. It’s now 1943 and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are “relocated,” Ellen moves in with the Johansens and pretends to be one of the family. Soon Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission to save Ellen’s life.
I read this for the first time as a school assignment. I can’t remember which grade though. I loved this book! I don’t reread books often (I’ve only reread HP and only once) but I read would read this book over and over again. I would finish it, read something else, and read it again. When I was younger, I was really into historical fiction, so I think that’s a part of the reason why I loved it so much.
What about you? Any books from your childhood stick out? Let me know!
