Sincerely Carter | 52 Books in 52 Weeks | Week 2

By Saturday, October 17, 2015

Yes, I am back with a love story and no, I don't care if you judge me.

I had completely hated this book because of its cover. I thought it was one of those 'bad boy turns good' kind of story. But this book just kept popping up in my Goodreads recommendations and so, I finally gave it a read yesterday a few days back. And I wanted to slap my self for judging a book by its cover.

The story is about Carter and Arizona, who have been best friends since the fifth grade. They go on with their lives while still staying connected. They might have had their own share of relationships but none of them ever worked out, because they were in love with each other. DUH ! Didn't you read my chick-lit memo from the last post ?

Side note - This book reminded me of the movie Made in Honor 

The story is super predictable but the writing is pretty strong and gripping. The writer has a way with words which I absolutely loved. But most importantly, I loved the honesty in this book. The feelings are so raw and genuine. It almost didn't feel like a fiction. May be, it isn't. We'll never know.

My heart filled with so much happiness after I finished the book. Also, Carter's love for tattoos made me want to get one ASAP. I will probably get one, I just have to figure out how to get away from my mother's wrath.

I am so happy I decided to do this challenge. I had almost forgotten what a bookworm I was until I picked up the books again. There is just something about books, they transport you to a completely different dimension and you forget all the little troubles in your life.

In fact, now I remember why I had stopped reading books - because I got addicted to them. And it is happening again. I just hope I don't spiral out of control this time and keep myself sane.

I also picked up To Kill A Mockingbird this week, but I just couldn't read it. I have had the book with me for about 2 years now and I just cannot read it. I know its a classic and everything but I couldn't go past the first 50 pages. I had rather read Archies than this. Actually, I would pick Archies over any other book.
