(Hi peeps! I know today is Friday… HAPPY FRIDAY!!! However, I really wanted to post this yesterday but I didn’t have time to edit and post it… so here it is today!)
Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
My life has seemed to become consumed with school work lately, so sadly my reading time has been far and few between. I have been reading the book “1984” by George Orwell for my English Lit class, and I have been really liking it so far! My English class readings have been very interesting in the past, so I am not surprised that I am actually enjoying a mandatory read.
Third Sentence Thursday used to be a very regular blog post that I would publish every Thursday, but I haven’t made one since March 2015! TST used to be hosted by That’s What She Read, but her blog has since been deactivated. If any of you know who currently hosts “Third Sentence Thursday”, please let me know in the comments and I will add their Blog URL/link to this post!
Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.
“Winston’s heart was thumping so hard that he doubted whether he would be able to sleep.” – “1984” by George Orwell, pg. 175
This is actually from the page I am on now! For my class, we split the book up into four different sections, and have a conference after we have read and finished each section. While I haven’t started this section yet, I assume this has to do with something related to The Party or Julia. Like I previously said, I am really enjoying this book so far! The beginning was a bit slow and hard to get into because I found it quite confusing. However, as I read on I started to understand the world a lot better and appreciate Orwell’s distinct writing style. The plot is very very interesting, and I can’t wait to see how the book pans out!
