It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Journey, and it’s a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well.
This past week I finished Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, which I really liked. Rowell has this way of portraying young love that is just so realistic and lovely. There’s a scene in it in which the main love interests first kiss, and it rang so true to me that it was like I had lived it myself. I also enjoyed the way that book treats the subject of fanfiction, and it honestly made me want to run out and write some, although I’m not sure what I’m a big enough fangirl of to write fanfic about. Maybe Veronica Mars? Buffy?
I’m trying desperately to finish Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon for Wednesday, as I have a book tour stop for it on that day. It’s a good book and I’d love to just sink into it, but unfortunately real life (work) is getting in the way. Bah.
Up next is Before I Met You by Lisa Jewell, a writer whom I read years ago and liked. I’m looking forward to reading her work again, this time as historical fiction.
