BOOK LOVE: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Since I just turned in the BURN OUT sequel to my editor, I rewarded myself with a trip to Barnes & Noble and picked up a copy of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It was one of those books that sucked me in and also had me in awe of Ms. Rowell's writing ability. The kind of writing that makes you doubt your own ability to write because it's THAT good. Anyway, I wanted to share my book love for Eleanor & Park and highly recommend it for any fans of contemporary YA...and also for fans of 80's music!

From Goodreads:
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.

Has anyone else read this yet? What did you think?



  1. I have never wanted to jump through the pages of a book so badly. I just wanted to take Eleanor shopping for some decent clothes!
