Guest Post written by Helen/Clare Dantes from Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood.
Thanks for having me! Some things I’ve been reading lately include:
The Count of Monte Cristo- This is a classic book about revenge and it’s been great for ideas. Of course I would never actually attack Lauren with a sword. Mostly because a) I don’t have a sword and b) if I did I would go to jail and would look lousy in an orange prison jumpsuit.
The Golden Age of Cinema by Jewell: I absolutely LOVE old classic movies. Everyone always wore those great outfits. It also doesn’t hurt that I’ve started to date this guy, Christopher, who wants to be a director when he grows up. Not only is he hot, but he also knows who directed Casablanca.
How to Meditate by Novak: My parents gave me this book. They’re totally into meditation, letting the universe be your guide, natural hemp fiber clothing (despite the fact it gives my dad a rash), and eating things like lentil bars. I haven’t read it yet.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Dahl: This was one of my favorite books growing up. I like all the candy and also the idea that the nasty kids get turned into giant blueberries and the good kid gets the whole factory.
Before I Fall by Oliver: I loved this book. I liked how the main character kept getting another chance to make things right. I wish there were do-overs in real life.
Thank you for these book picks! I agree with you, I wish there were do-overs in real life too.
Thank you for being here, Helen/Clare, and Eileen!
