Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge Wrap Up



I find it hard to believe, but it's true; today is the last day of October and thus the end of the second Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge. What initially began last year as medium in which I could share with other readers my love for all things Betsy-Tacy has grown to be so much more than I ever imagined. I am thrilled to connect with a vast number of Maud Hart Lovelace fans and to watch as a new generation of readers discover this wonderful author and these fabulous books for the very first time.

As this is the wrap-up post for the challenge I have opened a Mr. Linky where all participants of this year's challenge can come and link up any and all Maud related posts from their blog. Even if in the last few weeks you have left a comment with a link to your blog I encourage to you re-post it here. This is a great way for me to connect with each of you (I've tried to stay on top of all your posts, but I may have missed a few) and an awesome way for you all to connect with each other.



Thank you for participating! I hope you all have had as much fun as I have reading Maud's books and learning about Betsy, Tacy and Tib, Emily, Winona and Carney (and all the rest of the Deep Valley crowd and beyond). I hope you have enjoyed learning more about Maud herself and maybe even been tempted to check out some of her other works or to take a trip to "Deep Valley" (a.k.a. Mankato). Most of all I hope you're planning to keep reading and return next year for the third Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge! Maud's books are indeed modern classics, little gems of literature and I can't wait to do it all again next fall! See you all then -- and hopefully in between on other topics.

Just introduced my 9-year old granddaughter to the Betsy books last night. As of this morning, she had read the first two. I sent all of them home with her. She wants to read them and then her mother wants to read them and when they return them I will read them all again. How exciting! Lulu

So glad that you introduced me to this author as well as series. I am going to continue reading through it and hope to one day read these books with my daughter.
Thanks again!

Thanks for hosting the challenge! I'll be posting my last review for the challenge today, though I did finish the book before the challenge ended. ;)

Really enjoyed the first two books in this charming series, especially reading them in October, alongside so many spooky reads, which I don't like to read right before going to sleep: Maud Hart Lovelace was perfectly soothing though. Thanks so much for hosting!
