All Summer, as the world was anticipating the release of the movie, every copy was on hold in every library. Thus, all Summer, I recommended The Lovely Bones to everyone who didn’t feel like waiting for this- I’m pretty happy that I made a spot-on recommendation. They read similarly but were interesting in their own right. The Time Traveler’s Wife’s is heavy on description/detail which I enjoy but drags things out quite a bit.
Everyone who saw me reading this week screeched that this was their favorite book ever (they were mostly women + 1 male); I won’t be counting it as one of mine. Not to give away the ending, I wasn’t particularly moved by it, but then again I’m mildly desensitized by somethings and am pretty good at figuring out the end of a book halfway through. All and all, good book for those who want to a romance with a twist.
