Hey everyone and I’m so excited that this is another Classic Fridays post!! I haven’t done one in so long and it feels good to have them here again!
If you don’t know what Classic Fridays is, here is the page on my blog where you can get more information on it: Classic Fridays. A quick rundown of the project is that this is a weekly meme and anyone can join us in it!
Anyways, this week’s topic is Politics! This is a topic that I would normally stay away from, but with it being an presidential election year and all, and I’ve been reading some books with politics mixed in, I thought it might be cool to have it as a topic!
Do you enjoy reading books with some politics thrown in? Why or why not?
I usually like the books with some politics thrown in, especially if they are YA Contemporary books because I feel like it adds another dimension into it.
What’s one book that you’ve read with some politics mixed in? Was politics a main point or just a smaller back story?
The latest book that I read with politics mixed in is Interference by Kay Honeyman and it had politics as one of it’s main focuses which I appreciated immensely.
Did you enjoy the book? Why or why not?
Ahhhh I loved the book so much! It was so good. You can find a review of it here: Interference
Is there a biography of a former President/First Lady/First Child that you’ve read? If so, which one?
I’ve actually read quite a few biographies of former presidents, but most of them were just the kid friendly, simplified down versions online so I can’t actually remember them all.
BOOKSTAGRAM Prompt: All the books with some bit of politics mixed in. #ClassicFridays

Some non-bookish questions:Do you watch presidential/other debates? Why/why not?
I usually try to avoid the debates as much as possible but I always make it a point to read recaps of major things that happen so I’m not too out of it the next day at school and whatnot. I just feel like the debates don’t really do that much and is just an opportunity for the opponents to insult each other.
Who’s your favorite president/first lady to learn about? (I know it’s a weird one but for some reason, everyone has one).
I actually really like reading and learning more about Laura Bush and Michelle Obama because they are both so different, and have done so much in their own ways and also because those are the only two First Lady’s that I actually have any knowledge about because I wasn’t born until President Bush’s term.
