Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers discuss the books that they have borrowed from the library or bought to add to their shelves. I personally think it’s a fabulous idea as you are able to learn about books that may not even have been of interest to you!
I have just begun to read To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway which is such a classic! The following is a quick summary from Goodreads:
To Have and Have Not is the dramatic story of Harry Morgan, an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair.
Harshly realistic, yet with one of the most subtle and moving relationships in the Hemingway oeuvre, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.
I’ve recently been feeling incredibly burnt out from school, and not really feeling like myself. I have no clue what brought this about, but I’m hoping that a little book therapy will help me feel better. Although I have two midterms coming up next week, I think reading a book is a better use of my time, right? At least I hope so.
Let me know if you’ve read this novel, and feel free to link your STS posts below.
