Book Blogger Hop 09/14/12


I haven't participated in this meme for a few weeks and I'm glad to be back! The question this week:

Highlight one of your favorite reviews from the past month!

I suppose that is less of a question than a direction hmm? I re-read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird for The Classics Club. Check it out!

  1. Such a great book, I think I need to re-read it in the next month or so then watch film. Atticus is the best protagonist.

    1. It's one of my all time favorites :) I just watched the movie for the first time yesterday! My youngest daughter and I watched it. She was a bit bummed that it was in black & white, ha!

  2. Do you find that the more you blog and get around bloggers that the less time you have for re-reads? I use to re-read frequently and now I can't seem to get all the new stuff read.

    1. Yes! I've been thinking about that. My schedule isn't very organized at all now and I'm wondering what I can do to clean it up.

  4. Hi Elizabeth, thanks for visiting :) I really enjoyed Mudbound...and thanks for the reminder that it was in my currently reading spot, I had to tweak that a bit since I finished it a while ago!

  5. Hi, Jennifer!

    Like you, I read this novel years ago. I think it's about time I read it again, for the pure pleasure of such a great plot and characters! It definitely deserves the label of "timeless classic"!

    Your take on the book is perfect! I totally agree with you about Atticus -- what a MAN!! I don't think most men have any idea how attractive they become to a woman when they steadfastly stand up for what is RIGHT. I saw the movie version, as well, and thought that Gregory Peck really nailed this character.

    One thing I especially like about your review is that you've included all of the various covers that have graced this novel. I've never seen amything like this before in a review. Great idea!!

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful review!! : )

    1. Thank you for such a lovely comment Maria :) Atticus Finch is simply the greatest protagonist in the history of books, if you ask me! Gregory Peck was the only choice to play him in the film. What a great role for him. I was so glad to find all of those covers, I love seeing them all together like that.

      Thanks again for stopping by!
