After several delays, due to website issues and health issues, I finally started the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge on Book Lover’s Day. I have been wanting to do this challenge for numerous years, but I kept procrastinating over the last few months due to the first book. 1984 by George Orwell. In school, I had to read George Orwell 4 years in a row, 3 Animal Farm projects and 2 1984 projects. It had seemed I never would escape the clutches of George Orwell’s writings, so I vowed, never again.
And what just happens to be the first book of the challenge? Yep, I had to accept it, if I ever wanted to get to the fun reads, I was going to have to read Orwell, again. In this day and age, where hate seems to be overflowing and encompassing the world, it was hard to “escape” into this book. It is a frighteningly realistic hyperbole on what society could become.
Anywho, it is a classic and one that I am grateful to check off the list! Up next, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. This was one of my favorites growing up, so it will be nice to revisit it.
