Welcome back for another fun filled Spanking A-Z post! Today’s letter is “L”, and of all the cool choices I could have gone with, (Lust, Love, lick, lewd, lascivious…) I knew in my heart there was only one L for me.
The Lord of the Rings
This fantasy is the sequel to J.R.R Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”, and is split into three volumes.
The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.
I remember loving getting lost in these books as a young girl. The adventures were so fantastical, so wonderful! Unfortunately, it had been such a long time since I read them, that I only have a few memories.
The two biggest events that I remember reading were:
- Frodo losing his finger when fighting Gollum. (Ok, this was a long time ago, but I am positive there was lava nearby. Gah. Time to re-read. 🙂 )
2. And my all time favorite scene from a book- probably ever!! When prophecied that “not by the hand of man, would the witch king fall”, the one who saved them all- was a
I was so excited when Eowyn killed the Witch King (the Lord of the Nazgul).
Here’s what she said:
“But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund’s daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him.” (Wikipedia)
That’s one of my favorite memories from the books! I loved that a hobbit and a woman were the ones who changed the tide of the war.
So freaking awesome!
I wish I could remember more from the books. But unfortunately, all my new memories are from the new movies, which were fantastic!
Not many book can be made into movies, without being destroyed. But LotR was not only a pleasant book to movie transition for me, it completely satiated me. I loved the movies! I adored the re-created characters!
It makes me want to re-read the stories again.
They are sitting upstairs on a huge bookshelf, along with The Boxcar Children, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Harry Potter.
Someday soon, I will take the time, and re-read these awesome books, and someday after that, I will share them with my own children.
Long live elves, hobbits, dwarves, wizards, and middle Earth!
Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
