As you can tell, I like the classics. There is a reason they make you read these books in school ladies and gentleman. It is because they are awesome. They resound. They make you think and imagine and understand like you never had before.
This is Kathryn Stockett’s first book and she did an exceptional job developing the plot and characters. This story takes place in Jackson, Mississippi in the year 1962 and follows the lives of three different women.
I recently read one of three books in a romantic series by a best-selling author. I stumbled across what I assume is the second of three. Deep in the heart of Texas, three sisters fall in love with three brothers. I was a disappointed by the book’s predictability. I didn’t think the characters were particularly interesting. I know—it was just a romance. I didn’t expect literary fiction, but did expect a little more.
May I recommend a few romantic westerns, or romances in a western setting, to you?
Goosebumps, I got goose bumps, I'm not going to lie when I saw the new Harry Potter preview. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows arrives in November and the new trailer has just surfaced. Although, I have mixed feelings about the last two movies, on the one hand I’m very excited, on the other I’m a little sad. It didn't take me long to jump on the Harry Potter bandwagon. I started reading the books in early 2000 before the last three books had come out. I was immediately hooked. I'm so enraptured by these books, I even remember where I was the first time I really looked at them.
