The Time Will Come (7)
The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company, where we can highlight the books on our shelves that we’ve been meaning to get to for some time, but have been put on the back burner for one reason or another.
The book that I chose for this week is:
A Wrinkle in Time
Published 2007 by Square Fish, an imprint of Holtzbrinck Publishers
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I’ll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract.”
A tesseract (in case the reader doesn’t know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L’Engle’s unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O’Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg’s father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.
A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. (From Goodreads)
I think I may be one of the only book bloggers out there that hasn’t already read this book. I think most people had to read this in school, and I’m not sure why it was never required reading for me. But I got this book as a gift from one of my friends last year, and I’ve been meaning to read it, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. Hopefully I’ll be able to read it soon, or maybe I’ll save it for the next readathon I participate in, because it would be a quick read.
What books have been pushed back for you? Let me know, or leave a link to your post if you’re participating in this meme and I’ll be sure to stop by your blog!
