Forgotten Friday (3)

Forgotten Friday is something new here at bookmarked! After researching other memes, I discovered there really weren't any that featured the books we've always wanted to read but keep forgetting about. This is an idea I've had floating around for a while because I am notorious for wanting to read old releases and getting side tracked by the new books constantly coming out.

This week's featured book is . . .

The Outsiders
S.E. Hinton
first published 1967

I have a feeling I'm going to keep embarrassing myself with these posts. The Outsiders is another classic read by nearly everyone I know. I wish I had an excuse for not reading it, but I just never did. What are some classics you've never read?


  1. You aren't alone with The Outsiders thing. While we were snowed in last week, I rented the movie on Netflix. My huband sat down to watch it and said: "What's The Outsiders?"
    My 14 year old son and I looked at him like he'd lost his mind. We live in Oklahoma! Every Okie has read The Outsiders or at least heard of it! He hadn't. So, I marched to the computer and ordered it on Amazon.
    It really is a great book. And the movie launched about a half-dozen careers!

  2. @Stefne
    :whispers: I haven't watched the movie either!
    I know all about it, I know who's in it, I've just never seen it. It's definitely on this year's bucket list!

  3. I've got so many books I WANT to read. I'm still trying to catch up with all the really old vampire novels that went with the old nosferatu movies. I'd also like to read "Seven Brides for Dracula!"

    I'm following your blog. Found you on Book Blogs. :-)

  4. The Outsiders!!!!!!!!! It's my all-time favorite novel. You should read it! The movie is also fantastic--one of my favorites. S.E. Hinton's other novels are also amazing.

    There are a lot of classic kids books I haven't read: Chronicles of Narnia, Phantom Tollbooth, Treasure Island. . . . Maybe someday I'll get around to them.

  5. Cute Blog! I love your Blog title! I’m a new follower Happy Saturday!! I would love for you to stop and take a look at my blog as well! Thanks!

  6. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I actually haven't read The Outsiders either, so no, you're not alone :) Another classic I've never read is Catcher in the Rye.

  7. Hello! I am your newest follower from the friday blog hop. I'd love it if you would follow back at one or all four of my blogs :)

    Have a great weekend!
