Welcome to Our Mutual Friends!

Hi! Welcome to Our Mutual Friends: Liz and Jaz do classics! If you’re a fan of Charles Dickens you might recognize the title of our blog as the plural version of his novel Our Mutual Friend. It’s one of my favorite novels, and the name seemed appropriate for a blog dedicated to those books and movies that my friends and I have spent so much time reading, watching, and talking about.


There are many delightful stories to discuss, so we are choosing a theme for each month and dedicating each week to a different story in that theme. We hope to post two to three times a week: one post about our favorite characters and aspects of the novel or movie; one post to briefly review movie versions of the novel; and one post purely for fun with spoof reviews, quotes, random facts, or whatever else strikes our fancy.


June’s theme will be Favorite Romances. We’ve already chosen our four stories for the month, but please tell us which four classic novels/movies you would choose. Or try to guess which ones we’ve decided on!
