“My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. Time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees— my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath— a source of little visible delight, but necessary.”
3 out of 52: D.U.F.F (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)
Apparently every group has one. And the above quote is actually from one of the books I have been incapable of reading – Wuthering Heights. The main character, Bianca, is told by a high school playboy that she is the D.U.F.F of her group of friends. Drama ensues and they start a friend’s with benefits relationship until she starts to have feelings for him. She then finds herself in Catherine’s position and struggling to read Wuthering Heights, until she reads this passage. I guess I’m showing my age by admtting that I was shocked by how much sex it appears high school kids are having these days. Being a youth oriented book it was the kind of easy and cliche read that I needed to recover from my struggle with the last book.
3 out of 52: Veronica Mars – Mr Kiss and Tell
This used to be one of my favourite TV shows. And the book still portrays the main character as witty, sarcastic and empathetic. I enjoyed the book because I loved the show and had already fallen in love with the characters. On its own I’d describe it as an adult version of a Nancy Drew book. And it’s far more fun if you’ve watched the show and the movie.
