This week, I finished reading The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson. It is about a young man that moves to Puerto Rico and starts working at a newspaper. We follow along with his adventures and misadventures. I really liked the writing style and it was a quick, enjoyable read.
This week, I finished reading Kit’s Story Collection by Valerie Tripp and Winnie-The-Pooh by A. A. Milne.
Kit’s Story Collection a collection of six books in one book that I found at Goodwill. It is about a girl named Kit, who is a part of American Girl, and what she and her family go through during the Great Depression. I don’t much care for the dolls but I really liked the writing and thought it had a clear and understandable plot, making it enjoyable to read. With this in mind, I think it’s perfect for young, impressionable minds. I’ve read the Molly books when I was younger and enjoyed those as well, so I thought I’d read Kit’s story, too. I might need to do a reread of Molly’s story since it’s been a while.
I also finished reading Winnie-The-Pooh by the original creator, A. A. Milne, before Disney bought the rights. I really enjoyed the language from the start and it was a very fun and funny little book. I highly recommend it for the young and young at heart.
Thank you for visiting my blog,
I recently finished reading Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. Apparently, it’s not a sequel but a first draft of To Kill A Mockingbird. If you are interested in that, it’s worth a read but as a stand alone novel, the interesting parts came and went. The main focus was on prejudice as in TKAM but in between, stories of Scout’s childhood and teenage years were dispursed. These parts were more interesting to me. Other parts were long and made me lose interest, maybe that’s why it took me 12 days to read it.
Bottom line: If you’re a fan of Harper Lee and TKAM, it’s a good read but otherwise not so much.
