For this throwback Thursday, I’m picking a memorable book that starts with the letter ‘E’.
I’m picking Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, a Goodreads 2013 Choice Winner for my letter ‘E’ throwback. I read this book last year and thought it was a sweet story of two quirky young adults finding happiness in each other. I highly recommend giving it a try, if you haven’t read it already!
Description (From Goodreads): Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
