The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, by Joan Aiken

Reading to Know - Book Club

It now being May, we are moving on with our next read for the Reading to Know Classic Bookclub. This month we'll be reading The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, by Joan Aiken. This title was selected for us by Bluerose's Heart. Here are her opening remarks:

*****

I usually pick my reading based on the pretty cover, words or phrases that catch my attention, high praise from a trusted blogger, or books that make it on a "book list". Those books that make it on a "book list" are ones that stuck out in someone's mind from all the others, and that's extra motivation for me to put it on my reading list. Also, any book in the middle grade realm that has a dark(ish) weird vibe immediately goes on my list.

A couple years ago, I saw The Wolves of Willoughby Chase (Wolves Chronicles) on a book list, and for some reason, it gave me the vibe that it was on the darker, odd side of the book world. At that point, I felt I MUST read it! I haven't started reading it yet, so I still don't have a clue what it's about, but here's to hoping I find a great "odd" read.

I hope you'll join us this month!

*****

I've already begun reading this title and so far I am completely enthralled! It's a quick and easy read, full of mystery. If you can land a copy of this title, I highly recommend reading along.

We hope you will consider reading along with us. If you are planning on it, we always like to know. Just leave a comment below!

Have fun!

I'm hoping to read it to my girls, but we have two already in the works now. I'd better get to reading!

I'm joining in again this month - started reading a couple days ago and am very intrigued by where the plot appears to be taking us...
