FRIDAY CONFESSIONS

13»

Re: FRIDAY CONFESSIONS

  • True - the part of Fangirl I related to/loved the most was the same part others couldn't relate to/found annoying. I think RR does a good job of really finding the truth in life experiences, but if you haven't had those experiences or if you experienced them in a different way, you don't get as much out of her books.
    One of the things I love so much about her as an author is how much range she has in capturing real life experiences, like you said.  I love that she can write teens, college students, young professionals, and married couples without missing a beat in terms of believability.

    I didn't have all the feels from Landline.
    Oh yeah? I haven't even read Landline #confessiononeupper
    I haven't read anything by RR.  #iwin
    I haven't either nor do I have any desire to.  (runs and hides)
    If you read The Raven Boys all will be forgiven.
    After going through all of you gushing over Blue Lily, Lily Blue, I downloaded The Dream Thieves to listen to.  I'm going to start that after I finish Letters from Skye.

    "People talk about escapism as if it's a bad thing... Once you've escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn't have before. Then you are better equipped to deal with your current reality."
    - Neil Gaiman

  • The only RR book I didn't OMGLOVE was Eleanor & Park - and I think it's because I really couldn't relate to anything the characters experienced. All of her other books, I've had something to relate to.

  • Someone posted a picture of a pretzel on IG and now I can't stop thinking about it. 

    I just Googled "Pretzels in my town"  and plan to go get one and eat it on the way home so I don't have to share.
