Coming Soon!

Welcome to Bella's Bookshelf! Let me introduce myself: I am Niffercoo, a homeschooling mom in my mid 30s who is a huge fan of the Twilight series of books by Stephenie Meyer! One of the things I love best about this series is that Bella, the female lead, is such an avid reader of the classics***. I was and still am an avid reader, but when I was school I chose to read Sweet Valley High, V.C. Andrews, and Danielle Steele. Fun books, to be sure... but nothing to stretch the mind.

Bella has inspired me to tackle these classics that I missed! I want to know who this Mr. Darcy is! I want to know what Bella and Edward are talking about when they reference Wuthering Heights! I even want to know about Paris falling in Romeo and Juliet!

So I invite you to read along and discuss with me as I tackle these classics for the first time! Our homeschool year resumes in early August, and that will keep me busy getting back into a groove. I plan to start posting and discussing sometime in October! I hope you'll join me!



***OK, it could also have something to do with a certain vampire, but this isn't a fangirl blog after all! :)
