First Cycle of CLRP : Wrap Up

It’s been 3 years since I started my Children Literature Reading Project, and this is how it went. I was quite optimistic at the first year, for the second year I had a tough time (unrelated to this project), but everything was under control. Then, I had to slow down and lay back my blogging activities last year, so there wasn’t much progress for the third year. However, I don’t regret everything, since I had really great time reading children’s literature through the difficult times (though I didn’t review it all).

I’ve updated my 2014-2017 list so it contains books I’ve read and reviewed. I’ve added some books out of my original list and omitted some books I haven’t read/reviewed. Here are some books I’ve read that haven’t been reviewed, not including borrowed books and books I (seem like) won’t review:

  1. Ajdar – Marjane Satrapi
  2. B is for Beer – Tom Robbins
  3. Esio Trot – Roald Dahl
  4. The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery (reread)
  5. The Magicians of Caprona – Diana Wynne Jones
  6. Sable – Karen Hesse
  7. Dear Mr. Henshaw – Beverly Clearly
  8. Indigo – Alice Hoffman
  9. Odd and the Frost Giants – Neil Gaiman
  10. Heartbeat – Sharon Creech
  11. Lulu Walks the Dogs – Judith Viorst
  12. The 13 Clocks – James Thurber
  13. Shiloh – Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

So there are 56+++ books I’ve read, and 43 books I’ve reviewed.

Just for the record, here are books I’ve omitted from the list. I may read these books for the next cycle.
