Monday: Musing/Mailbox/Whereabouts

Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia, In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and New Crayons is hosted by Color Online. Check all three, which are related to books you receive in the past week.

I received the following two books:

1) Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas
2) The Scottish Thistle by Cindy Vallar


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Musing Mondays (BIG)
What books did you read while in school? Were there any that you particular liked, or even hated? Did any become lifelong favourites?

We had English Elective in our Senior School years. Apart from the course books, I read a lot of classics..Novels, Dramas, Poetry etc.

Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights remain my perennial favourites. I read and loved Rebecca too, along with lot more books. I read almost everything by the Bard. Wordsworth, Keats, Shelly, Browning, Burns, Frost, and comtemporary poets interested me a lot. They still do.

However, I don't like Jane Austen Novels. And also Hemingway. Period

The Scottish Thistle by Cindy Vallar

"Rebecca" is one of my all-time favorites! I keep hearing about it lately, so I think it's time for a reread.
