Five books this week – looks like this is becoming the regular number; I suppose that makes 20 books a month, so not bad overall. 🙂 I read only fiction this week, but a nice mix between fantasy and contemporary. I really must get back into short stories and non-fiction though… Loved the absolute wackiness of The Last Dragonslayer – think this might finally inspire me to finish the Thursday Next series! I also adored Literally – it was a very fun, easy read.
Literally – Lucy Keating (4 stars)
Annabelle’s life has always been pretty perfect. But then she meets world-famous young adult author Lucy Keating and everything goes pear-shaped. Her parents are getting a divorce, and selling the house Annabelle grew up in, and then she meets a boy who can only have been written for her – it has to have been manufactured. Just when she thinks her theory that Lucy Keating is writing her life is too bizarre for words, she finds herself in a love triangle (typical), and the fight between author and character is ON! I loved that Keating spoofed and applauded the stereotypes of YA literature, while creating a vivid story which encapsulated some of the struggles which come with the writing process.
