Heyyyy, bookish people! I hope you have a wonderful week!
Do you know what happened this weekend? Well…. I bought a book! Yayyyy!
It’s funny because I told to myself that I wouldn’t buy books this month, but… ops!
Anyway, this is the book I bought:
It made me so happy that my local bookstore had this book! I’m glad that they are kind of putting more english book on their shelves. After all, there are many people here (in Portugal) that are starting to read more in English and it’s great that bookstores are noticing that. Besides, they would only lose money if they didn’t sell English books. However, my local bookstore is definitely lacking in diversity… They have too many unknown authors, some classics (not that much, tho), and they don’t even have completed series, even though they are selling books that belong to a series! Ughhhh….
Besides that, I’m glad they are slowly getting better.
Here’s the Goodreads synopsis:
‘Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.’
A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.”
See you tomorrow!!!
