Wishful wednesday [1]

This is my first attempt (even though I’ve been following the blog for few months) of Wishful Wednesday, a media to share any book that you loved having or reading.

Here are my Wishful Wednesday for this week:

A Little Princess

A little PrincessSara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her adored, indulgent father dies. Now penniless and banished to a room in the attic, Sara is demeaned, abused, and forced to work as a servant. How this resourceful girl’s fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of children’s literature.
This unique and fully annotated edition appends excerpts from Frances Hodgson Burnett‘s original 1888 novella Sara Crewe and the stage play that preceded the novel, as well as an early story, “Behind the White Brick,” allowing readers to see how A Little Princess evolved. In his delightful introduction, U. C. Knoepflmacher considers the fairy-tale allusions and literary touchstones that place the book among the major works of Victorian literature, and shows it to be an exceptionally rich and resonant novel.

I’m interested in reading more books by Frances Hodgson Burnett because I finished reading her “Secret Garden” in 2014 and I was really satisfied with the book; the whole story, the descriptions of each setting, the characters, and also how each character was transformed into someone much better. Secret Garden is a book that I would love to be read by every single child.

The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr

516ZFHDTg8L._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_Using Stanford University’s voluminous collection of archival material, including previously unpublished writings, interviews, recordings, and correspondence, King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life.

Actually any Autobigraphy of Martin Luther King, Jr would do.
