The Secret Garden 100th Anniversary
The Secret Garden 100th Anniversary | Frances Hodgson Burnett
"One of th' gardens is locked up. No one has been in it for ten years." When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds it full of mysterious secrets. There are nearly one hundred rooms, most of which are locked, and the house is filled with creepy old portraits and suits of armor. Mary rarely sees her uncle, and perhaps most unsettling of all is that at night she hears the sound of someone crying down one of the long corridors. The gardens surrounding the odd property are Mary's escape and she explores every inch of themall except for the mysterious walled-in, locked garden. Then one day, Mary discovers a key. Could it open the door to the garden?

This is one of Mrs Bookwomble's favourite childhood books, although I've never read it myself. When I saw this cover peeping out from the pile on the charity book table, I couldn't resist it, so now I may just have to read it in order to justify my purchase 😏📖

A favorite from my childhood which I've revisited fairly often! I don't recall it being so repetitive but I feel that's a frequent issue with me these days. What a fun experience actually hearing some broad Yorkshire, since I've never really known how to put a spin on it and you can only imagine what it sounds like in NewYorkese! 🤣

🌿I am going to read Secret Garden (well listen to it). I got about half of it done today. Super surprising that I never read it growing up. 🌿I don't garden but... I really wish I did. Like I love love love plants but I suck at it. Maybe I will “learn“ some day.. I have beautiful flowers outside and I am so happy they are able to take care of themselves :)🌿

Here is a quiz to see which character you are from the book. Which one do you think you will get before you take it? Did you get who you thought?

1. Cabin or yurt!
2. My childhood summer camp is always in my heart, so I'll steal its name here: Camp Lael.
3. The Secret Garden is pretty rough by 2021 standards, but the descriptions of Mary's connection with the weather and the growing garden still transfix me.
4. I got behind in my July reading and I want to finish a few titles that I started and stalled on last month.

This has been one of my favourite stories since l was a kid and still l only knew it in adaptation.
The original is enchanting. I loved all the simbolism, though it drag a bit in the middle.

Fiction: *Plot* What questions do you have about the story? Why are you curious about these components?
Ive finished the book, and I really enjoyed the plot. Nothing really made curious since the line of event were clear. They way the author made everything in order and even though there were many mysterious involved, in the end the author answered all my questions.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A wonderful story of how one little girl can change the lives of so many. Mary is an orphan who arrives to live with her Uncle who she does not know. Her Uncle is gone most of the time and Mary is left with the servants. Mary is a quite precocious little girl. What she discovers will change the future for a little boy and his father.

Thanks for the #ThoughtfulThursday tag @MoonWitch94

📕 I‘ve read Good Omens at least 6 times, HP several, The Penderwicks and a few others I‘ve shared with the kiddo
📖 not usually, though I sometimes avoid books based on the cover art (movie tie-ins, for instance)
📚I love the power of nature to heal the kids in the tagged book. Kiddo read it with Gramma last summer and wants to garden now.

I‘ve read a lot of boring books where a perfect little girl lands in a relative‘s home for some reason and she charms everyone. This is the opposite. Mary is a spoiled rotten terror, and over several chapters she learns what it is to like something and from then on we get to see her grow into a still spirited but much more amiable child. TW: There are a few hard to read “Yikes!” moments in regard to race near the beginning of the book.

1. The birds! It's so lovely to hear them singing in the morning. I even stopped listening to my audio book when walking to work, because I prefer hearing the birds.

2. Nope, not really.

3. Done. Even though it might not be a spectacular choice. I could've gone for Tell The Wolves I'm Home as well, but this just fits better.

My favourite thing about spring is the end of winter. I hate the cold! It makes me sad. I love how spring smells and looks and the promise of long summer days and holidays ahead. I also love to eat mulberries and start swimming again. The change in season doesn‘t shift my reading choices but I do read more as I try to stay warm in bed in winter. The tagged book is one of my favourites of all time. I love the original movie too #thoughtfulthursday
