♥ Weekend Reads ♥

It's the freakin' weekend, and i decided to opt out of #fridayreads and opt in for my weekend reads this week, there is so much i want to read, and i feel like at the moment im just not catching it up, ive finally got back into the habit of reading for an hour before bed though so that is helping; anyway - onto the books.

Black Rabbit Hall
At  Black  Rabbit  Hall  nothing  much  ever  happens  ­-  time  seems  to  move  slower  at  this  idyllic  holiday  home  in  Cornwall.  Until the  worst  thing  happens  and  for  the  Alton  children  time  feels  like  it's  stopped  altogether.  As  they  run  wild,  lost  in  grief  and confusion,  an  outsider,  Caroline  Shawcross,  and  her  dark,  angry  son  Lucian  enter  their  lives,  changing  them  forever.

In  the  present  day,  Lorna  Smith  is  searching  for  her  perfect  wedding  venue  and  is  inexplicably  drawn  to  the  now  crumbling  Black  Rabbit  Hall,  unaware  that  her  own  history  is  locked  up  in  those  derelict  walls...

Thoughts so far; The description is wonderful and you feel yourself lost amongst the crumbling walls of the hall, in the woods around it and in the mystery of the building. Everytime i finish a chapter i feel like i read more to find out all the answers; from the past to the present, its so far a beautiful read.

To Kill A Mockingbird
 The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior—to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

Thoughts; I never got the pleasure of reading this in school, i cannot recall what we read instead, but i know it wasnt this, and im late to the party i know, but with the release of Watchman, i need to get cracking.
