Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell My dear friend Desiree made Magic happen and managed to get me an ARC of this because she knew I had loved loved loved Eleanor & Park.

I love this one, too.

It's different. Which is good. Nothing is worse than when an author tries to capture the same thing twice, because it's never as good the second time around. In this novel, she branches into new territory, and it's not about someone tormented by her family, but rather about a girl who pretty much torments herself.

And the main character, Cath... you *root* for her. Deeply.
Even if you think this book might not be your thing, give it a try. I doubt you will regret it.
