30-Day October Book Challenge ~ Day 9

Farmer Boy  - Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams

9 ~ A book you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

I've read the Little House series numerous times. Not the whole series numerous times, though. The whole series minus Farmer Boy.

 

See, I'm a girl. And Farmer Boy is about Laura's husband, Almonzo's, childhood. Being a girl, I was convinced I wouldn't like Farmer boy so I put off reading it, until one day I knew I couldn't really claim to have read the Little House series unless I'd read all the books.

 

So I finally read Farmer Boy. And, of course, I loved it.

 

What can I say? Sometimes I'm the tiniest bit stubborn.
