Here’s part four of Lit Chat. This series was inspired by Lauren from Lauren and the Books over on YouTube and the Lit Chat cards created by BookRiot.
Today’s card is Lord Of The Flies
What book do you associate most with your high school experience? Your college experience?
As a bonus for that literature course we read a lot of poetry and I discovered Louise Gluck. I would love to get my hands on a full collection of her as she seem is draw from myth and fairy tales. The two poems of hers I adore are Gretel In Darkness and The Triumph of Achilles.
Are there any other books that mark milestones in your life?
Dragonkeeper by Carole Wilkinson: I first picked up this series in grade 6 so I would’ve been 10 or 11. I adored the series and it really help kick start my love of books. This series feature Ping, a resilient young girl, travelling across China with wise and ancient dragon, Long Danzi and a precious dragon stone.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: No surprise this one is here. I was 14 I think when I picked up this book and become obsessed. This book was my gateway drug to young adult fiction and to fandoms.
The White Queen by Philippa Gregory: I think I first picked up these books a 4 or 5 years ago. I had just watched the mini series and feel head over heads for The Wars of the Roses and The Plantagenet dynasty. Also my gateway book into historical fiction.
That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know what book reminds you most of your schooling? Also any books that mark milestones?
Until next time, happy reading!
