Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
This week’s book:
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
BLURB FROM GOODREADS
At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, Scotland, teacher extraordinaire Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably, and outspokenly, in her prime.
She is passionate in the application of her unorthodox teaching methods and strives to bring out the best in each one of her students.
Determined to instill in them independence, passion, and ambition, Miss Brodie advises them, “Safety does not come first. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty come first. Follow me.”
And they do — but one of them will betray her.
Why I Want to Read This
Because it is a modern classic first published in the 1960s and I’ve seen it on many must read lists. Anytime I see a book on a must read list it gets added to my TBR lol!
