The Boxcar Kids led me to The Little House on The Prairie. I read every book, and with each book, the more i wanted to be Laura, with a Ma and Pa like hers. I wanted to live in that little house in the big woods so badly. I wanted to wear those long dresses and bonnets! Many many hours i spent with my nose in these books, putting myself in Lauras place. Later, after i had a my first daughter, i came across a dress, just like the ones laura wore, with a bonnet, and i bought it and dressed my poor daughter in it.....in a sad attempt to have my own little laura ingalls. Sheesh. I just might have to read those books again one day.
Then came my Pilgrim and anything old New England stage. I wanted to be a pilgrim girl, tapping papa`s maple trees, sitting at the fire on a cold winter night watching mother knit me a new wook scarf by candle light. Playing in the forest and spotting an injun, running home breathlessly to tell papa. Ahhh what a life. I still have a facination with the Old New England, i think i always will. When i get to New England, first stop..........The Mayflower!
And those books led me to my witch stage. This has been my longest stage, i am a witch wannabe. Ever see the movie, Practical Magic? I LOVE that movie, i want to be one of the old aunts, and live in that house. Real bad. I have Tarro Cards, i have a spell book, i have graveyard dirt, I have the witches almanac, I even have the black cat, but sadly, i have no wand, nor the vintage clothes all witches wear. I remain, just a wannabe, destined to live my one day a year as a witch on Halloween, and waiting for another good witch book to come out. *sighs*
I have no new witch book at the moment, i am currantly reading something totally differant than i have ever read before, it is called, The Pillars of the Earth, which is a great read by the way.
Which book are you reading right now?
