Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee | The Fire Sermon by Frances Haig | Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed | The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan | Between the Notes by Sharon Huss Roat | Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling
Did everybody dust up their copies of To Kill a Mockingbird in preparation for Go Set a Watchman’s release this week? Yes? No? Well I did. I wanted a refresher course because I read it so long ago. It’s nice to go back and reminisce all the things that I loved about that book. My indignation over Tom Robinson’s fate still rings true to this day; and my appreciation for Atticus Finch’s quiet magnificence seems to have grown by leaps and bounds. Scout is a character that is both illuminating and amusing. And at such a young age, this girl has taught me more about acceptance and bravery than any living person I know.
No review books this week. But you’ll notice I picked up a couple that are pretty old: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling, and The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I decided to finally read those series because I think it’s high time. Originally, I planned on reading Harry Potter with my boy. But he refused to read Harry’s books for some strange reason. So it looks like I’m going to have to fly solo on this one.
Anyway, that’s it for me this weekend. I hope you’ll have a great Sunday!
