My favorite childhood reads

Something about school starting gets me in a nostalgic mood. How about you? There are many books that shaped my reading and shaped me as a reader. Even now, I remember the mood or feeling or even the change that happened to me as I read certain books.

I was a vorcious reader in elementary school. Our classes had colored books with about ten or more books in each color. The books got harder and harder to read. I zipped through the books pretty quickly. When I got bored with those, I turned to the school library.

SHADOW OF THE FOX by Julie Kagawa BOOK BIRTHDAY!

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko…
