Spotlight Sunday: You Need To Read This Book!
I am starting a new series on my blog called Spotlight Sunday! It was started by Closet Readers, but I haven’t seen any new posts made since last year. I thought with being a newish blogger I’d start it back up. So, every Sunday I will be sharing a book that I think deserves the spotlight!
Today’s spotlight book is…
To Kill a Mockingbird
Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature. (Goodreads)
Spotlight Sunday: You Need to Read This Book!
I absolutely love this book! It is my all time favorite and a definite must read. This book is an ultimate classic and takes you back in time to a summer during the Great Depression. You’ll fall in love with Atticus and his children Scout and Jem. The children endure a summer acting out stories with their new friend Dill. You’ll also find that Scout absolutely hates school and does not want to go back. She is also a kick ass and asks questions later who can’t keep her attitude to herself.
As you can probably tell Scout is my favorite character in the book. I love her attitude and how she wants to just be one of the boys. Her dad tries to keep her in line but she has a mind of her own and lets you know what it’s about.
Why it’s Worth the read…
To put it plainly it’s a classic. Also, it is beautifully written by the amazing Harper Lee. It may have been her first of two books but it is the top of my love it forever list. I don’t know what else I can say other than you need this book and it has lots of pretty covers!
What book do you think deserves the spotlight? Maybe I can feature it next!
