A to Z Challenge - Favourite Books - Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley and Me, Elizabeth

Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley and Me, Elizabeth. Or any other book by E. L. Konigsburg; a list of favourite books wouldn't be complete without her.


Her most well-known book is From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, which always made me long to run away and live in a museum, too.

I think Konigsburg's books are as difficult to classify as Diana Gabaldon's. Konigsburg's are for middle grade or young adult readers, certainly, but the stories are about intelligent kids, kids facing the usual problems who tackle them with not-quite-the-usual methods. I wanted friends like those characters when I was younger, but at the same time, I think life would be difficult with kids like that. They demand a lot, and they challenge you.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm just lazy...
