July 28, 2015 2015, Top Ten Tuesday 8

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I take part in when I can think up answers! It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with! This week–characters who love books–love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc. I’ve read all these books at one time or another except for the last two. I own Guidebook to Murder, but haven’t read it and Booked to Die is a book I’d like to read. The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley–Carrie McClelland is… Read more »

So yesterday I wrote a little bit about my love for A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I feel like I said almost nothing about the book and there’s more I wanted to write about, so this is post 2. This post is mostly about Dickens writing about the French Revolution. I don’t think it really counts as a spoiler for me to say that once the French Revolution portion of the story gets going, the French peasants are going to kill a lot of people and they’re going to do it some really awful ways. That’s just history. I’ll also say that once they start doing that… Read more »

Hi, this is Karen. As my mom said, I’m hoping to write in occasionally with book reviews, so hopefully this first one won’t be so off topic that it gets me kicked off the blog! I’m starting with a review of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities. I know this isn’t the type of book my mom usually reviews on her blog, but she told me I could write about any books I wanted, and I really loved this book. I’d never been particularly interested in reading A Tale of Two Cities because it sounded like kind of a boring book, but wow, was I wrong! This is an… Read more »
