Day Ten: A book that reminds you of home
Again, my first choice would be a number in the Harry Potter series, because we read them as a family. But I’ll go with number two, Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo.
To be honest, I don’t remember much of what actually happened in the book. I had to check out the Goodreads summary for that. I don’t remember if it was good or not. I do remember we read it as a family because we were told it was like Harry Potter—we were in between Harry Potter book releases, so we bought the hardcover book, and Mom and Dad would take turns reading it out loud.
So cliche, but Going Home by Harriet Evans. When I was younger, we moved around quite a bit, so there’s not really a book that reminds me of that but this one gives me that feeling of home.
It’s about Lizzy Walter going home to spend Christmas with her family and finding out the family home is in jeopardy and with that the unity of her family. Every time I read it, I wish I was part of her family and in the book with them. It gives such an overall feeling of comfort and concern, it’s perfect. I forgot how much I love this book!
