And we’re back with another edition of the book club! It’s been quite some time, but I’ve finally read a few books and found one worth sharing. (Books, I’ve realized are kind of like princes… sometimes you have to read a few frogs!)
I heard about Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess on a few blogs that I read. I was intrigued because the concept seemed super similar to myself (i.e. figuring out the Real World) and also intrigued because it takes place in NYC (or, well, mostly Brooklyn. Duh.)
While the book was heavy on obnoxious dialogue (not a fan of the weird and incessant nicknames of the Oopsh thing), it’s really quick and funny and an easy read. Perfect for the summer and even more perfect when you have a lot on your mind and just want to escape.
The characters are ones that you can totally relate to (or at the very least have a friend that totally matches the description). The girls are all facing everything that you face when you’re at the bottom of the totem pole at work, unsure of your passions, dealing with boys, and navigating the murky waters of post-college friendships.
Oh and it really made me crave fresh salads and low-fat brownies.
Have you read Brooklyn Girls? What books are you reading or planning to read?
