Friday Linkups - The Grapes of Wrath
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Do you read a lot of diverse or own voices books? Why or why not?
Not really. I'm not purposely choosing to not read them it's just I typically read genre fiction like mysteries and romance which I'm not sure really have options that fall under the diverse or own voice tag.
To the red country and part of the gray country of Oklahoma, the last rains came gently, and they did not cut the scarred earth.
I love how visual this is. I normally don't think of Steinbeck being particularly descriptive but I can just see the rain and the earth.
Muley observed, "Judge says he give you a light sentence 'cause it wasn't all your fault"
I love how matter of fact Steinbeck's dialogue is and this scene is a really perfect example of that.
So what do you think? Keep reading? Are there any classics that you've been meaning to read but just somehow haven't picked up yet?
