The idea behind this post is self-explanatory, but what's new is that I've decided to participate in the blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog.
"Wish List Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves."
My pick for this week's Wish List Wednesday comes from an article about 22 Books You Should Read Now, Based On Your Childhood Favorites. My favorite childhood book was Hatchet and based on the article I should read this book. I have to admit the synopsis does sound intriguing.
Brian has his hatchet and Margo has her rifle, and both are fending for themselves in these stories of survival. Their isolations are different though; where Brian is alone in the wilderness after surviving a plane crash, 16-year-old Margo is traveling along the Stark River in rural and sparsely populated Michigan in search of her long-lost mother. The dangers she encounters are real and often disturbing, but her perseverance is legendary.
This book sounds awesome. I encourage everyone to check out this list. Even if your favorite childhood book isn't on the list you can still discover a great new book.
