Bout of Books 13 Day: 3 Challenge/Reading Update

 Bout of Books 13

For more information about the read-a-thon, check out my introductory post.

DAY 3 UPDATE

I successfully finished The Heir by Kiera Cass today.

Completed books: 4

Pages read: 1157

Books left: 3

About a book a day ain’t bad, tomorrow it’s going things are going to start to slow down; I’ve got loads of summatives to get done by next Tuesday.

And now for the challenge…

From Modern to Classic

A book, published after 2005, that I believe in 100 years will become a classic is…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

Goodreads

My Review

Why?

1.It’s so beautifully written that it breaks your heart.

2.It is relateable and inspiring to many people. It’s already based a couple decades ago and it still is relevant, so in about 100 years it most will likely still be.

3. (Bonus point) I loved it and I would read it a thousand more times if I could.

Also, Fangirl by Rowell should be a classic as well. Fangirl explains fan fiction so well that people from the future will be able to understand it.

Now for the challenge…

    Ah! Extra credit for you, m’dear! I haven’t read any of Rowell’s work, although I do have a copy of Fangirl waiting for me to get stuck in. I love your reasons and your choice, thanks for sharing a book that is a little out of the ordinary. I have had Fangirl put forth as a response to this challenge, and I am starting to think that Rowell’s work might all fit into the cannon as one of those authors who define a period of history, e.g. Fitzgerald, Dickens or Austen.
