    Have you finished ‘A Wrinkle In Time’? I loved it; hopefully will be putting a review on my blog soon, but I’d love to hear other opinions…

      Yes I finished it! I’ve been rereading all of my childhood books since I started working in a middle school (It’s been marvelous). I really enjoyed it– if you liked A Wrinkle In Time I’d recommend The Ocean at the End Of the Lane by Neil Gaiman! They reminded me of each other in a really good way.
