How did revisiting (or beginning) the Harry Potter series go for you? I am honestly so sad that the series is over. I can't wait until Jacob (my next door neighbor whom I've babysat since he was born) gets a smidge older so I can introduce him to the books. I have only watched the first five movies... so I have three more to go! I definitely prefer the books (hello, the details are incredible!), but the movies are pretty darn good!
January's selection is good.
Ann Brashares has been one of my favorite authors. I have loved the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series for a long, long time. Her books are scattered around my house, my room, and my bookshelves. I haven't read the full series in a while, but sometimes I'll pull an installation off the shelf and read a chapter or two!
I was so happy to hear that Ann Brashares wrote another novel. I was on the wait list for it all summer long... apparently, it was quite popular!!! I removed myself from the wait list when I returned to DC, so I was extremely happy to see that The Last Summer (of You & Me) was available in my favorite library over break.
It was very different than the Traveling Pants series, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I definitely even teared up throughout. I think it's a book that a lot of us can relate to, which is why I believe I enjoyed it so much. Alice has just graduated college and is about to go to law school... The whole novel is an interesting look at sisterhood, love, friendship, and growing up.
