My summer reading plans.

April Morning 
The Red Badge of Courage 
To kill a Mockingbird.

 I am taking America Lit for school this year and i wanted to get a head start on my reading for it. 
  I have already finished April Morning and i must say I really liked it. I liked how the story was a new perspective on a historical event that we are all familiar with. I liked the characters, they where very likable and believable.

The Badge of Courage i am in the process of reading, i am about half way through it. So far i don't really like it. I don't really like the way it was written, I find it hard to follow and a little mundane. An honestly I don't like the main character, I find him very selfish. And it has this habit of making me fall asleep every time I read it. 

I have not stared to Kill a Mockingbird yet, but i have seen the movie and I like the story a lot and i am excited to start reading it when the time comes.  


  1. I didn't like The Red Badge of Courage either. The main character is a very frustrating person. What is April Morning about?

  2. April Morning: is a story depicting the Battle of Lexington and Concord from the perspective of a fictional teenager, Adam Cooper. It takes place in the 27-hour period from April 18, 1775 to the aftermath of the battle.
    It is the Battle of Lexington and Concord though the eyes of Adam Cooper.
