My Summer Reading List

Summer is upon us and it has come to my attention that there are a couple of classics that I have never read.  It is shocking, I know!  The first one is To Kill A Mockingbird.

I started to read this book when I was younger because growing up it was in our house, but then I didn't. Now I am going to!

The second book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

I recently uploaded this book to my Nook Color and now I am determined to read it.

I can't believe I let these classics pass me by.  Have you read one or both?  Did you enjoy them?  Comment please!!

Read more here and here.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is my most favorite book EVER!! I hope you love it! Such a great account of Depression era NY. Francie Nolan is an amazing character!

I have read To Kill a Mockingbird. I remember enjoying the book when I read it, but for me it wasn't as good as the movie.

As for A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, that's one I've never read.

I've read To Kill a Mockingbird but I haven't read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn - I need to pick that one up!

Hi Lesli!

I read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for my book club last year and really enjoyed it. The first half is a bit slow but the 2nd half picks up a lot and it was a really interesting read about a time/place/life that is so different from ours now! I loved the book's main character.
