I seriously can never believe how fast the week has gone until I write up my next FF post! Follow Me Friday is a weekly book-blogger meme hosted by Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View (easily one of the sweetest book blogs I've ever seen by the way). Have a book blog? You can join in the fun too! Just visit Parajunkee's site at the pink link above, be sure you are a follower of her blog and the blog she is featuring for the week, put your name in the Linky, create your own FF post on your blog, and then start commenting and following whomever you wish!
This Week's Question:
Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?
Well I am definitely a classics kind of girl through and through, so even though I do love my YA fiction to death, most of my books would probably be a bit more on the heavy side- I'm guessing I'll have a lot of time in my bomb shelter to get through these :)
1.) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
2.) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
3.) Confessions by Saint Augustine
4.) Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
5.) The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
6.) Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
7.) Utopia by Sir Thomas More
8.) Middlemarch by George Eliot
9.) Dracula by Bram Stoker
10.) Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
While I have read some of these already, there are just so many classics I want to get through at some point in life, but a lot of them are just really tough! So I figure, if I am stuck in a bomb shelter I'll have no choice but to concentrate and make my way through them... However, I have read Pride and Prejudice at least 8 times, it is my fave book ever, and I've read Jane Eyre probably about 3-4 times. Some classics are just readable no matter what time period you're in :)
Happy happy Friday to you all and thank-you for stopping on by my blog!
