Follow Friday #25



Photobucket

Follow Me Friday is a book meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. #FF is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. In order to join in the fun, all you need is well . . . A book blog :)


The question this week is:

Summer Reading!  What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
 
My answer:

Finally, an easy question! There were two books that I clearly remember. One was Emma, by Jane Austen and the other was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I love those books, especially CMC - I've read it several times and watched different movie adaptations :))

Please leave links to your FF's, so I can stop by!! Oh, and if you're a new follower, let me know so I could return the favor!

Also, I want to remind you about the giveaway of "Pledged" that's going on at the moment. Please visit The Giveaways Page for more information and the Rafflecopter.

  1. LOL, sorry if I confused you with the new YA blog, just thought it would be easier to separate the content.

    Count of Monte Cristo, I can't remember if I read this or not LOL. I am too old. I need memory pills .

    thanks for following and stopping by.

  3. Emma is one Austen book I haven't tried yet, but I need to fix that soon since I love her work. :)

  4. YAY!! I chose CMC too! It was like the only required reading book I enjoyed! Loved it! Although I did see like the end of one movie adaptation and hated it! It sooo changed the book and it made me mad. Of course I didn't see the whole movie, but the ending was enough to make me write it off as a never ever movie!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  7. Would have loved to have read Emma in school. We didn't read ANY of those classics. I read Wuthering Heights for an essay project, but we got to choose our books. Erk.

  14. Hello Vanya
    Had to drop by and follow when I saw your name on FF! And yes, Emma . . oh, she was just wonderful. Such an amazing character. I never did read CMC. Perhaps I should add it to my staggering TBR. I'm a new follower, by the way. And you know where I am: http://todayinshenaya.blogspot.com
    Have a magical weekend.

  15. I still haven't read any Jane Austen, and I'm in my 30s! It's a shame, I know! But I do own a few of her books and Pride & Prejudice is in my physical TBR pile, so I should hopefully be getting to it soon! And I haven't read The Count of Monte Cristo either, but I've heard it's good! Thanks for stopping by my FF/TGIF, and have a great weekend! (Old Follower) ;)

  16. I really enjoyed Emma, but not Pride and Prejudice, can you believe that? I have the unabridged version of the CMC but haven't read it. It's so daunting!
