Follow Friday - Summer Reading


Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: School is out! What is your favorite Summer Reading book?
Here's the thing. I actually only ever had one assigned summer reading book.  Strange I know.  It was Grendel which I actually really enjoyed at the time but probably couldn't tell you anything about now. Or wait, was it Beowulf and then we read Grendel during the school year? That makes more sense.  Honestly, that was AP english in high school and we read a lot of books so I'm a tad blurry especially since those are basically the same story told from different perspective. I liked them both well enough. I think I preferred Grendel because it was less poem and more just novel.

I'd prefer if you'd ask me what is my favorite book to read in the summer.  So I'm going to pretend you asked that too.  It's the Song of the Lioness quartet by Tamora Piece and I usually re-read it once a year.  It's my happy place BFF series.

Hopping through. I didn't like Beowulf when I read it in school but I've been thinking that I should give it another try. I've seen so many cultural references to it.

I've never had a summer reading assignment either, mainly cause it's Christmas & the end of the school year in Summer!

I never had required summer reading either. It was always suggested. And I pretty much never went with the school's list since I had my own books I wanted to read!

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

I've never heard of that book but it's amazing that you always re-read it. I'd love to re-read but I it's hard for me to find the time since there are so many new books to read all the time. I'm a new follower!

I think I had some summer reading lists when I was in school, but I don't remember anything I read from them! I'm a new follower.

Stopping by from Feature Follow.

I am an old GFC follower, new Twitter follower. Tried to follow by e-mail, but it wouldn't let me do it. It said this feature wasn't set up.

Have a good day.
