March 29, Friday in Memes #7

The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
    Name one classic novel you have always wanted to read. (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

My Answer:
      A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (1929). I guess it is more than 10 years I keep in mind this book and still did not come even close to it. It was a recommendation from our literature teacher and we were supposed to read it, but as additional book, so nobody did. But I still remember how she talked about it and it made me wanting to read it anyway.

Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Gillion Dumas of Rose City Reader. A weekly meme where readers share the first sentence of the book they are reading and say what they think.

My Book Beginnings:
Once, four children called Charlotte, Emily, Anne, and Branwell lived all together in a village called Haworth in the very farthest , steepest, highest, northernest bit of England.
My 56:
Charlotte's furious pace had dragged them all across the moors and into sooty Keighley streets early. The hay market gate clattered and echoed with horses and voices and
smelled of many less wholesome things than hay, but no carriages waited there to collect two unhappy girls. Emily looked up to a bank's brassy clock tower. It wasn't near time for speeches yet.
Outline:  I have heard a lot good things about this book, but I know literary nothing about the plot. The only this is obvious from the beginning the story is based on inspired by Bronte family.

  1. Never read anything about Ernest Hemingway (but I'm not American so it isn't in our school curriculum, maybe that's why) but I'm like you. I've never read books that were an optional reading but I did read them after (1984 is one of them). Have a nice weekend!

    1. I am not either, but it was an additional course in American literature, so I happily skipped it)))

  5. I read an Ernest Hemingway novel a few years ago and I really didn't like it. I think it was a FAREWELL TO ARMS. Ugh. I didn't like his spare style at all. My Friday quotes

  6. Reading Hemingway isn't always easy, but he does offer something to think about. His down-to-earth style would really contrast to the wildly fantastical elements of The Glass Town Game.

  7. I've read A Farewell to Arms but don't remember one thing about it. It obviously didn't resonate with me. This week I am spotlighting Grave Destiny by Kalayna Price. Happy reading!
