Still on my Mind was created and is hosted by Haley at YA-Aholic.The purpose of this meme is to share a book you read months or even years ago that is still on my (your) mind every Thursday.

The Book Still on My Mind this week is…

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Goodreads Summary:

Doomed to—or blessed with—eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.

Why It Is Still On My Mind

I had to read this book back when I was in 5th or 6th grade. The other day when I was on Instagram looking at everyone’s pictured for Book Soulmates Photo A Day Challenge for favorite Childhood books and Katelyn from Kate’s Tales Of Books and Bands  posted a picture of this one and I was just like “I REMEMBER THAT BOOK!” While I first started reading it I really loved it but then I got to the end and absolutely hated it. I remember trying to write my own endings though I can’t remember what I came up with now. Since being reminded of this book I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it and how much I disliked the end. It was so long ago and I’m wondering if I would feel the same about it a second time around especially now that I am older. I know I say this a lot but I really wish I had the time to reread it an find out. Maybe I will again some time but who knows.

Have you read Tuck Everlasting? What did you think about it?
