To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Monday, April 27, 2015


Hello friends!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  I just finished reading the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.  I enjoyed this reading this book and I'd love to share with you a little bit about it.



It's been a long time since I read this book in high school.  I was interested in reading this book again since the author will be releasing for publication her second novel Go Set A Watchman this summer and you can read more about that post if you click HERE.

This a novel set in the small southern town of Macomb, Alabama during the Depression.  It follows three years of the life of 8 year old Scout Finch, her brother Jem, and their father Atticus who is a lawyer.  The story is told through the eyes of Scout Finch and how their father is put on a case and how the facts of it have rocked the whole town.  This novel covers race, class, justice, and the pain of growing up.

I totally enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it.  I am so happy I read the book again and I'm looking forward to reading Harper Lee's next book Go Set a Watchman.

Have you read any good books lately?

  2. We read that for book club a few months ago(my first time) and I really liked it. I watched the movie right after and it was wonderful!

  3. I read it in high school and am a big fan of the movie, but truth be told it was a long time since I encountered either. Then my daughter had to read it for school and I read along with her and I loved it even more as an adult. I am eager for her new book.

  4. Being from Alabama, I must say, Harper Lee is a state treasure. You might enjoy Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills. It is my favorite book about Harper Lee, the writer and the woman.

  6. I've just read "Mischief" by Fay Weldon. It is a collection of her short stories which seem to have been written from experience. I made this book last for 3 months as I was enjoying the stories so much.

  7. I'm excited about her new book, too. I read mostly nonfiction but love a really good fiction book to relax with. You can't really go on vacation without at least one good fiction book.

  10. I read it many years ago, but will have to go back and re-read it again. I am a avid reader about 4 to 5 books a month. Love my Kindle so I don't have to hold up a heavy book and smell dusty paper, which makes me sneeze.
    Have a wonderful week Julie.

  11. I've read it 16 times--and every time I read it, I find something new to chuckle over, ponder or think about. I've already pre-ordered Go Set a Watchman!

  14. I haven't read this book in years. I've probably forgotten most of it. The last two books I read were good. They are in my Goodreads on my sidebar. I'm reading an old book now, The Warden. Hugs, Diane

  20. I've often thought when I retire I would reread some classics. Now that I've been retired for a year, I never take the time to do so. My bad,
