It is so easy to join in and here are the rules:
Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to
This year I am reading…
I am a few chapters into You Had Me at Hola, and I am really enjoying it so far. I was pleasantly surprised that the story is told from both perspectives, which is something I love in romance. I want to know what both characters are thinking! I am also drawn to stories about celebrities, so this is the perfect book for me. I love that there is awkwardness between the two main characters, and I cannot wait to see how their relationship develops as the story goes on!
Last year I was reading…
My Friend Anna was not my favourite book, but it is certainly a quick read. I had a difficult time feeling too bad for Rachel DeLoache Williams, but her story is interesting. I am curious to know more about Anna Delvey and her deception and scams; however, I think I would have appreciated hearing the story from a different perspective.
Once again, these are two very different books. I can already tell that I much prefer You Had Me at Hola, but I think they are both quick and entertaining reads. Another parallel is that they both involve celebrities and fame in some way. In You Had Me at Hola, both Jasmine and Ashton are actors, and the author of My Friend Anne (which is non-fiction) works for a magazine and interacts with celebrities.
