Read-A-Long: The Secret Garden

Have you read The Secret Garden?

The children’s classic? A tale of a hidden garden and the children who bring it to life, by Frances Hodgson Burnett?

Somehow, I never got around to reading this book. I don’t even like to admit it because most people assume that as a lifelong gardener and nature lover, this was a book I would have devoured as a child.

Earlier this week Sheila at Book Journey posted that she would be reading Secret Garden for the first time and was amazed, no, shocked, that others commented that they never read it either. As a result, The Secret Garden Read-A-Long was born.

The Read-A-Long

The read-a-long is open to both first timers and re-reads. On May 31st there will be a Garden Party with a link-up for reviews, an online discussion and giveaways. Head over to Book Journey and join the fun. I will finally be reading The Secret Garden!

      I’m a little embarrassed to admit I hadn’t read it before!

    I remember reading this for English. I enjoyed it, but most of my classmates didn’t. Hope you enjoy it!
