I am so excited about this post! I have been waiting for this post for days, even though I only added one book to my shelves this week.
It was for sure the highlight of my week. 🙂 And why yes, yes I did look almost exactly like that. And why yes, of course, I stroked it, and smelled it, and loved it, and still love it dearly, because what else would you ever do with a book?
And did I tell you that it has one of those weird, yet awesome covers that is all soft-ish and almost velvety feeling! Oh, I’m sorry, I almost forgot to tell you what it was! I bought myself a copy of The Scar Boys in a purely impulsive moment where I lost all self control thanks to a newly rediscovered Barnes and Noble gift card.

But, I most certainly do not regret it. It was love at first line. Of course it took a while to get to that fabulous first line and through the into thanks to some classmates that didn’t seem to get that when someone is reading it means that you don’t talk to them or interrupt and pester them about the book itself or anything else. Especially not at the beginning or end. They also didn’t seem to be capable of reading basic body language and vocal tone. It should have been no secret that I deeply wanted to smack them until they shut up.
