Time once again for Feature and Follow Friday, an awesome weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read designed to help book bloggers meet and connect. This weeks all-important question is:
If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?
Even though it probably feels a bit dated now (as it was first published in 1993,) I would choose Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden. This one has so many amazing twists and turns as the lead characters fight to defend their country against invading forces. The heroine Ellie is not only a very strong young woman, but she is amazingly resourceful. I think a lot of modern YA heroines could take a leaf out of her book.
The second book I would choose is one of my all-time favourites, Oliver Twist. I was amazed by just how different the book is to its most famous film adaption. It's actually quite dark. It surprised me that anyone could make a musical out of some of the subject matter.
What about you? Which book (or books) would you choose?
