really liked it
bookshelves: book-club
Read on August 04, 2012

I was less than thrilled when my book club picked this one but I really liked it. I hated Romeo and Juliet when I had to read it when I was 14 and this book kind of explores the side of the story that bothered me so much: the part where the story isn't "romantic" at all, that it's dysfunctional and pathetic and sad.

August "official" book club pick.

Catie Do you guys have an unofficial one? I really don't want to read this. :-\

Sarah We always pick an unofficial one, someone commits to reading the "official" one in case we get newbies and then we have our subversive pick. We talked about doing Graffiti Moon for our unofficial pick this time, but I need to send out the email to survey everyone.

Ashton How exciting! I've already read this one. :)
