Harper Lee Has A New Novel Coming Out...And It's Going To Be Amazing

So, in what is pretty much some of the best news to grace the book loving community, Harper Lee author of To Kill A Mockingbird is set to release a new novel and I for one am pretty excited.

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my favourite and most read novels EVER so the news that Go Set A Watchman will feature characters from To Kill A Mockingbird is pretty epic to say the least. The book will feature the much adored character of Scout, twenty years on as she travels back to Maycomb to see her father Atticus.

Apparantly Lee started writing the novel decades ago but when To Kill A Mockingbird was released she abandoned the project. The fact that she started writing it not long after To Kill A Mockingbird makes me think that this sequel will have a really strong voice much like its predecessor and kind of makes me even more excited to read it.

With favourite books and authors there is always a feeling of trepidation when they start something new or a little different (in this case a sequel to one of the most classics of books in the world and also a fifty year time gap makes me a little nervous) but I for one will most definitely be pre-ordering a copy and putting To Kill A Mockingbird back onto my list of titles to re-read again this year.

Are you a fan of Harper Lee? Will you be reading Go Set A Watchman? Is this the best news ever?
