To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorite movies/books/stories. Seriously it was my favorite movie in Kindergarten. And I wanted to take this movie into class because I quote “thought the kids would really like it.” So for anyone in my Kindergarten class thank my mom that you’re Kindergarten self didn’t have to suffer through this movie like I’m sure all of you would. But I loved it! And I still love it so I am very excited for Go Set a Watchman. The novel is a little different. Scout is all grown up and it’s not as if she was telling the story. I have only read the first few pages and have heard some negative feelings on the book, but I don’t care. Scout is a dream role of mine for life!
Scout and Atticus.
Our favorite local bookstore, Left Bank Books, had a reading marathon of the first book celebrating the arrival of the new one. People could sign up in 15 minute slots to read a part of the book and my mom, dad, and myself all read back to back. It was really fun to go up and read and they even had fun, “southern” cocktails to drink as well! We got our copies (yes, copies we have four) yesterday so now all that’s left to do is read the book!
What are your thoughts on Harper Lee’s new book?
