Hey guys! I just wanted to stop by, in between my writing struggles this month, to update you on the small (but growing!) amount of reading I have been doing.
Lately I have been focusing a lot on poetry collections, so there will definitely be some of those this weekend. Aside from that, I'm currently reading a review copy of For Real by Alison Cherry.
I do admit it's a bit of a wait - the release date is December 2nd - but this is one I already highly recommend picking up.
For some reason I can't put a summary into words myself today, so I'm going to end this with the Goodreads synopsis:
No parents. No limits. No clue what they're in for.
Shy, cautious Claire has always been in her confident older sister's shadow. While Miranda's life is jam-packed with exciting people and whirlwind adventures, Claire gets her thrills vicariously by watching people live large on reality TV.
When Miranda discovers her boyfriend, Samir, cheating on her just before her college graduation, it's Claire who comes up with the perfect plan. They'll outshine Miranda's fame-obsessed ex while having an amazing summer by competing on Around the World, a race around the globe for a million bucks. Revenge + sisterly bonding = awesome.
But the show has a twist, and Claire is stunned to find herself in the middle of a reality-show romance that may or may not be just for the cameras. This summer could end up being the highlight of her life... or an epic fail forever captured on film. In a world where drama is currency and manipulation is standard, how can you tell what's for real?
