Hey good peeps! I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Thanks for stopping by our post for this week's Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Billy from Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.
This week's question:
What is your favorite classic novel?
I guess this depends on what your definition of "classic" is, but I am going to say The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I read it when I was a junior or senior in high school, and I was just beginning to find my own voice as a writer. That book spoke to me in a way that few books had been able to before. I underlined so many passages and wrote so many notes in the margins, reading certain passages over and over again. Beautifully written.
Mine would have to be Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I grew up loving to read thanks to my mother always taking me to the library, but when I read this novel in the 8th grade it gave me a new appreciation for the written word. As I read it, I imagined what it would be like if our government really did ban all of our books. Since then, I've been on a mission to read as much as I can ... and maybe to add a few to my bookshelves on occasion.
