Is it just me, or does anyone else squee with delight when they read those words? I actually am a latecomer to the awesomeness of Tolkien. I tried reading The Hobbit when I was in middle school and just… couldn’t get into it. But when I read it again in/after college, I immediately loved it! Sometimes I think you have to have a certain amount of maturity to properly appreciate young adult books!
Today’s prompt for #ABCsofReading
is Young Adult. The prompt for #squeakybookishlibrary
is 🍿, and obviously these movies are amazing. The prompt for #HamiltomeChallenge
is Cabinet Battle #1
- Underdog character, and I think, with the possible exception of Frodo, Bilbo is one of the underdoggiest - and therefore most fun to root for! - characters I can think of. And of course, it’s #FebandBackAgain
in preparation for #MiddleEarthMarch
Hope you're all having an awesome weekend!
