‘Tis a Good Book

How does self know this is a good book?

Because she’s been praying ever since p. 5 that the love interest hasn’t gone and gotten himself hitched in the two years when he and the main character weren’t speaking to each other.

She’s trying to remember how she first heard about this book. It couldn’t, surely, have been the Wall Street Journal? Or The Economist? Or Locus Magazine? None of those sites ever gives romance recommendations.

Anyhoo, the main character, Poppy, is a little like herself: she’s open to a whole lot of movies:

“I will go anywhere a movie wants to take me, even if that is watching a spy in a fitted suit balance between two speedboats while he shoots at bad guys.”

PWMOV, p. 47

And right away self knows that Poppy’s describing a scene in a James Bond movie (She’s seen them all. Yes, ALL)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
