Feature & Follow Friday (4)


Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Basically, follow me and say hi in the comments, and I'll follow you back!

This week's featured blogs: Books are my reality & Concise Book Reviews

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

A: Streetcar Named Desire, hands down. I love that it's a play, but Williams manages to make it so vivid and haunting despite his limited access to description. To Kill a Mockingbird and Grapes of Wrath are probably close seconds.

  1. I think I was the only one in my class who enjoyed Grapes of Wrath. And I'm going to have to look into Streetcar Named Desire.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Haven't read any of those except To Kill a Mockingbird. I swear, that book was required throughout all of U.S.

  4. I really liked Streetcar Named Desire, it was a fun play to read in class and everyone yelling "STELLA!"

  9. I never had to read that in school. In fact, the only one of those I had to read was The Grapes of Wrath. I'm old! : )
