An Acceptable Time

I finished listening to An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle. It’s labeled as the fifth book of the Time Quintet book series (A Wrinkle in Time book series), but I think it should be the last book of the O’Keefe book series.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, Meg’s daughter Polly is taking some time of from school to stay with her grandparents. She had met a guy when she went on class trip to Athens. His name is Zachary Grey. He shows up at her grandparents house wanting to see her again. They see a strange man near one of the trees, but the man doesn’t say anything to them and then the man disappears. Then Polly meets a strange girl. The man and girl are part of the past of 3,000 years ago. Zachary tells Polly that his heart is bad and he is dying. Then they both go back into the past. Zachary is so focused on getting his heart fixed that he does something so terrible that ruins their friendship. Zachary and Polly do come back to the present.

Even though I didn’t like Zachary, I loved the book. I will be reading the O’Keefe book series soon. Now I’m reading A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

A Wind in the Door

I finished listening to A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle. It is the second book in the Time Quintet book series (A Wrinkle in Time book series). I decided to go back and listen to the second book before finishing out the book series.

Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this book, Meg’s brother Charles Wallace gets very sick. He says there are dragons in the garden and he is losing his breath when he and Meg do to the garden. Meg does meet the dragons. The dragons are actually cherub. She also meets the principal in the garden, but it was the principal. It was a evil creature that looked and acted like the principal. Later on Meg has to pick out the real principal in the series of three tests. Meg also meets a teacher who tells her that she, the principal, Calvin, and the cherub will help Charles Wallace to get better.  They do go inside Charles Wallace to make one of his cells evolve. In the end, Charles Wallace does get better and the principal sees things differently.

I love this book. I’m listening to next An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle. It is last book of the Time Quintet book series (A Wrinkle in Time book series). She wrote a book series of Meg’s daughter which I do plan on reading.

Many Waters

I finished listening to Many Waters by Madeleine L’Engle. It is the fourth book of the Time Quintet book series.  There are five books in the book series.

Warning: there is some gross parts and a little bit violence.

In this book, Meg’s twin brothers, Denny and Sandy, were home alone.  They were going to make cocoa, but the cocoa was in their parents’ lab. They go in there to get cocoa and discover their dad has an odd looking new keyboard. It is winter there so one of the twin mess on the keyboard to make them go somewhere hot. They land in a desert place. They meet a small man with a mammoth. They are feverish from the hot sun so instead of walking to the man’s tent, they ride on unicorns. (Yay unicorns! I love unicorns.) One of the brothers pass out and disappear. The other arrives at the grandfather’s tent. He is been looked after. The other one goes into another tent and is thrown out that tent. The brothers do find each other again. They discover they had landed in Noah’s time before the flood. They fall in love with one of Noah’s daughters. They also become like family to all of Noah’s family. They do find a way to get back home via unicorn and angel.

I loved this book. I’m reading next Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers. It is part of the His Fair Maidens book series.

A Slightly Tilting Planet

I finished listening to A Slightly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle. It is the third book of the Time Quinet book series. (I skipped the second book, but I might go back to listen to it.)

Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this book, Meg is older (around 24 or 25 years old) and she’s married to Calvin. She’s also pregnant. Charles Wallace is older too. He’s 15 years old. Their father gets a phone call from the president about a mad man is calling for a nuclear war. Calvin’s mother tells Charles Wallace needs to remember a rune and to save everyone. Charles Wallace thinks he can’t do on his own. He meets a unicorn (so cool. I love unicorns) who takes him back in time to find out who the mad man is (I was wrong about who he is. I was thinking it was Mrs. O’Keefe’s brother. It wasn’t). He changes the past to stop the nuclear war from happening.

I loved, loved this book. It’s an awesome book. Now I’m listening to Mary Poppins Comes Back by Pamela Lyndon Travers. It is the second book of the Mary Poppins book series.

A Wrinkle in Time

I finished listening to A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. It is the first book in the Time Quintet book series.

In this book, a girl named Meg who is very bright (gifted) gets ridiculed in school because her father had gone missing. Her father is a scientist. He is sent on mission wherehe gets lost in space. Meg’s little brother is different too. He had met some interesting people. Meg and her brother go meet this interesting people one day. While going there, they meet up with Calvin (a boy who is different too.). Those interesting people tell them they can find Meg and her brother’s father. So they take a wild journey through time and space. They end up finding her fatheron a dark planet. Her brother gets sucked into the brain of the planet. Meg saves her brother.

I loved this book. I have the third book of the book series on hold. I’m reading next Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.
