don’t ask me about the last book I’ve read if you aren’t prepared for a 45 minute monologue.
May the force be ever in your favor, Harry.
Follow up: The cover of If I Stay has the blurb “Will appeal to fans of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight”
?? I’m not sure where the overlap is, but maybe that’s because I’m not a fan of Twilight??
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Exceeds the hype. I don’t know why I waited so long to read If I Stay. There’s nothing new I can say about it, since it’s 5 years old and obviously a very well loved book.
I have this terrible habit of not reading popular books unless I perceive reading them as culturally imperative (Harry Potter, TFiOS, etc). It’s possible that sometime in the last couple years I consciously choose not to read If I Stay simply because all my friends were reading it. Opposing popularity has helped me find some great books, like 4 to 16 Characters. But it’s also suuuuper ridiculous, because I miss out on dozens of fantastic books. I could have read If I Stay five years ago!
I am so glad I finally picked it up and cannot wait to read the sequel.
If one more person tells me that I shouldn’t be an English major or that I’m a bad English major because I typically prefer YA to the “classics” I am going to scream.
I will defend you to the death my friend. If there’s going to be a rumble, just tell me when and where.
