this week's questions is:
Q: Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.
Well my answer may prove to be pretty boring on this one. I am not reading a new release or a popular YA novel or anything like that. I actually took a trip back in time and decided to read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares.
Many of you may have read this considering how old it is, and the rest of you probably never plan on reading it, but I wont give any spoilers, just in case. I am really enjoying it, and the biggest thing I am realizing from reading this book is that I chronically ignore any YA contemporary releases because I am generally not into contemporary. I only decided to read this one because I am fond of the story to begin with and I bought book #5 on a whim when Borders was closing so I figured I had to read the other 4 before I read that one. However, I am realizing that contemporary isn't evil like my brain likes to pretend it is.
My favorite scenes in this novel so far are the ones where one of the main characters Lena is visiting her grandparents in Greece for the summer. I think this is particularly so because I am trying to convince my fiancé that we should go to Greece on our honeymoon (what normal person would have to be convinced, right?) and I am fascinated by the descriptions and the lifestyle.
Anyhow, I'm liking it so far. Have any of you read this series (many years ago I imagine)? What did you think, and what am I in for?
What are you all reading now? Cant wait to hear from you!
