I picked this book up from the book fair back in June because it is written by Ann Brashares, the author of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series which I am quite fond of.
The story isn't actually about the 'original sisterhood girls', but there are references and even little cameos from characters of the series, which I thoroughly enjoyed!
This book follow Ama, Penny and Jo, who were best friends that drifted apart, and their journeys through a summer (of course) that change them. Can they find themselves so that you can find each other again? They are all quite relatable characters that tend to make me think of four
An easy read that was enjoyable and fun. No tears at all. :)
Recomended If: You liked TSOTTP and love warm stories
1. Audio or Book in Hand?
Definitely book in hand, but I do enjoy listening to audio books while I have to do boring jobs like washing windows, tractors or driving.
2. Soft Cover or Hardback?
I'm not entirely sure that I mind either way. Soft are typically cheaper so probably soft covers.
3. Fiction or Non-Fiction?
Fiction!! I have always been a fiction addict, but in recent years I have been enjoying autobiographies and true stories.
4. Fantasy World or Real Life Issues?
Probably fantasy. They have always been my go to book since I was a kid. I love being able to lose myself in a world that is beyond anything in this world. But like I said in the previous question; I've started to enjoy real life issue novels as well.
5. Harry Potter or Twilight?
HARRY POTTER!! The first time I read Harry Potter, I was 7. I didn't fully comprehend it, but Harry and his world have been such a huge influence in my life. I am 19 now and still uberly obsessed. Seriously; I buy merch, my room is covered in HP posters, I have late night discussions with my co-geeky friends and have my own FB Harry Potter fanpage- The Hogwarts Express. :)
However, I am sad to admit that I went through the Twilight phase; but that's all it was, a fad that faded. Not like Harry at all.
6. Kindle, iPad, or Other?
I have actually never used any. I hear that Kindles are pretty good though, but I love the smell and feel of a book so I may never find out (unless my mum finally gets fed up with our overflowing bookshelves and buys me one).
7. Borrow or Buy?
I'm a buyer. I do like to borrow though, but If it's a book I really like/love, I'll be going out and buying it afterwards.
8. Bookstore or Online?
I mean, I adore bookstores and cannot go to a shopping centre without entering one, but due to prices, I generally will buy online (unless I want it straight away).
9. Tell Me One Time or Total Trilogy?
Hmm, tough one. I enjoy both! I love trilogies because I get to know the characters and world like its my own, but there is something fascinatingly simple about a stand alone book.
10. Monster Read or Short and Sweet?
Depends on how much I like the book. If it's something I am enjoying; definitely a monster read, but if it's something a bit plain; the quicker it ends the better.
11. Starry-Eyed Romance or Full of Action?
Oh dear. Neither. I'm not a fan of either by themselves, but together and with a few other elements equals parfait!
12. Curl Up in Your Snuggie or Bathe in the Sun?
Generally curl up inside as It's normally too hot or cold outside (I spend my summers in my home town where it is really hot, and the rest of the year in a freezing place where it actually snows, which is amazing for Australia). But on days where there is a beautiful balance; outside. I love outside and being immersed in nature. Sitting under a nice big tree with a book, nothing better!
13. Hot Chocolate or Latte?
I am a big water drinker; but if I had to choose; hot chocolate because coffee is Eww!
14. Read the Review or Decide for Yourself?
It depends I guess; on my mood and the book. If it's a totally random book then yes to reviews, but If its one that's been recommended or I've read similar ones then no, probably not.
P.S. I would love to know all of your answers to the tags, so drop a comment with them. :)
