  1. Oooo I like the 2nd one.
    Except I think it’s awesome when a woman is fearless.

    Hmm, this is one I haven’t read, though I did read the sequel after seeing both films. (Weird, I know!) I definitely need to read this at some point, because I really like the “fearless” quote, except my view point on it would be that it’s a GOOD thing to be that way. 😀

    Thanks for all your recent comments on my blog, Jade!

      As I understand it the sequel was written long after GWTW and not by Margaret Mitchell so I think I’m going to pass on it and leave the story as is. But you do have me curious about it though some of the reviews I read about it were not good.

      And as I told JuJu, normally I would agree with being fearless, but in Scarlett’s circumstances and considering her attitude about things, the old woman was giving her sound advice.

  3. I love it all. I especially love the last one because it is the one I remember most of all. I haven’t read the sequel either. It was given to me as a gift and I never got past the first page. It was clear that the magic was gone. I know that I was biased but the writing wasn’t imitation and it wasn’t easy imitation either. I thought about reading it again but I really don’t need to. I like the way the book ended though I know that sounds horrible. This book just felt so real to me. Bad things happen sometimes. And sometimes the ending is what you deserve even if it isn’t what the reader expects.

      That’s how I feel about it Alexis. The story did a good job reflecting real life and sometimes no matter that we all want a HEA, it just doesn’t work that way. I do believe Scarlett got what she deserved for all of her selfishness and I’m glad Rhett got away from her. I just imagine in my head him going on to find a love and happiness that he deserved. He’s like my older version of Jacob!
