|Check out that rockin' teddy bear T-shirt. Plus, I'm a drooly mess. Hello, 1985!|
My big sister came to town last night. The first thing she said to me was: "Look, I read three books you recommended on your blog, and I didn't enjoy them."
WHAT! Apparently her complaints about them include "accidents involving kittens" and "not being about grown-ups."
So I asked her, "What kind of book DO you like?" Her response: "Twilight and Pride & Prejudice and Around the World in 80 Days. Maybe Jane Eyre but I don't really remember what that's about."
Okay, so who knows about Around the World in 80 Days, and honestly I don't remember what Jane Eyre is about either except the creepo in the attic. So the most I can see in common is this theme: "Dudes who don't really like the chicks and act like douches but secretly do like them."
The Sister: "Yeah, but they don't act like douches. They're just kind of cold. Until they realize..."
Okay, so The Sister likes cold dudes who become enlightened.
The Sister: "YEAH! I DO LIKE THAT!"
Anyone have recommendations for her? She's here all weekend and will buy anything on her Kindle on a whim if you tell her to. Please leave a note in the comments.
So far I have given her Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols and Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty. I tried to get her to branch out, but this is how that went:
Me: Well, how do you feel about fairies?
Her: (Cold stare and eye roll)
Me: Okay then, are you open to werewolves?
Her: I am closed to werewolves.
PS: The Sister would like to clarify: "You know what I don't like about this blog post? How it suggest I'm a big, giant Twilight fan. Not that I didn't enjoy them, actually. But I did like Jacob's hot bod. But like, literally, how he's not cold like marble. Does this make me sound crazy?"
