I decided to join a few memes for a Friday blog post (I love checking out Katherine’s posts each week!). I’m participating in the Book Blogger Hop (answering a given question each week), Book Beginnings on Fridays, and the Friday 56 (sharing the first line, and something from either page 56, or 56% of the book I’m currently reading). Click the links to check out these fun posts.
The Book Blogger Hop Question of the Week:
If you could meet one author, dead or alive, who would it be?
My Answer: Oh my gosh, this is so difficult. I think I would have to go with Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book, and since she passed away years and years ago, I would love to actually get a chance to meet her. That said, I would be so nervous, I doubt I would say two words.
Book Beginnings on Fridays and the Friday 56
Geekerella by Ashley Poston
“The stepmonster is at it again.”
My Thoughts: It’s short, but I think it does really set the tone of the book. It’s a Cinderella retelling, so anyone picking up this book will have a good idea about what’s going on.
“What I want is an Orange Crush. It’s my one and only kryptonite, diet or no diet. One of these floors has to have a soda machine, and even a walk down the hall beats being holed up in a hotel room.”
This quote is from Darien’s POV. He’s chilling out in a hotel room, thinking about how much he wants a soda, even if he’s supposed to be on a diet to keep his figure top notch for his acting career.
Thoughts on the book so far: I’m only about 20 pages past this spot, but I’m enjoying the book. I haven’t been really into YA lately, but this is cute.
