Ok, so a few days ago I went to Barnes and Noble on campus to take advantage of the 20% student holiday discount. I bought some presents for the familia and made an impulse buy for myself. I haven't had a chance to do much reading recently, and actually haven't completed the book I started at the beginning of the semester- it's good, but clearly not as exciting as it should be, otherwise I would have finished it already.
So, I picked up this book called Milkrun by Sarah Mlynowski. I think it was the tagline that got me:
"A novel about breakups, boyfriends and BFFs."
And it takes place in Boston, which is definitely a plus. I know, I know, it's slightly embarrassing that I read fluff instead of intellectual books. But I have this theory- there are enough bad and upsetting things going on in the world, so why should I spend my free time focusing on difficult emotions, when I could be reading happy things. This goes for movies as well.
Apparently I really liked the book, because I stayed up until one reading it and this morning. I woke up strangely happy and not stressed about my final (which went pretty well, I think). I didn't even have a "book hangover."
A what? A book hangover-I'm pretty sure this is a term my dad made up. It's that awful feeling you get after you finish a book and aren't ready for it to be over...
Anyway, I defnitely recommend this book if you're looking for something fun in the form of a distraction. It's a quick read and made me laugh- what more could you ask for in a book. If you want to borrow it, I'm all for sharing :)
Or, you can spring the Amazon link. Love it!
