Hey everyone! I am back today with another installment with Classic Fridays. If you don’t know what Classic Fridays is, here is the page on my blog where you can get more information on it: Classic Fridays. A quick rundown of the project is that this is a weekly meme and anyone can join us in it!
This week’s topic is Currently Reading
Currently Reading: Love & Gelato by Jenna Welsh Evans
How long on average does it take you to read a medium (350-400 page) sized book?
On average, it takes me 2-3 hours to read a book, if I’m uninterrupted. If I’m reading throughout the school day, I think it takes me maybe 2 days to finish a book, depending on the amount of time I have during the days.
Is your current read amazing, okay, or not very good? Tell why!
I’ve been eyeing the book ever since it came out and I got a copy from the publisher to review (which I will have up super soon) and so far it’s amazing. I really like these contemporary romance books so I see the potential of this book being super good.
Turn to page 187, the first name to appear will be your one true BFF
On page 187, the first name that I saw (and the only name on there) is Howard. So it seems that Howard is going to be my one true BFF :)
Turn to page 43, the first object will be your weapon in a zombie apocalypse
The first object I see that I will use in a zombie apocalypse is shoelaces. Hmmm… that interesting..
First line of your current read
The first line of the book is “You’ve had bad days before, right?”
What do you think about the main character so far?
I really feel bad for the main character, Lina because she literally just found out who her dad is and where he lives/works, and she is shipped to Italy to live there with him for a while. But she will also have some amazing adventures in Italy cuz gelato and cute boys (that’s a good enough reason right?)
What genre are you reading right now?
The genre that book is in is YA Contemporary Romance
What is your favorite thing about your current read?
My favorite thing about this book is that it’s a summer romance book and is set in Italy (which is a place I want to visit!!)
Is this your first book by this author?
Yes this book is the first by this author.
Is it a standalone or part of a series?
I believe the book is a standalone.
Why or how did you choose your current read?
I’ve been wanting to read it for so long and I got it to review.
If you could go to the world of your current read, regardless of genre, and spend a week there, what would you want to do? Which of the characters would you want to hang out with and why?
I would totally go to Italy and just go sightseeing and eat good food! Of course I would want to hang out with the main character, Lina as well.
Take a picture of one thing or place or event that you feel represents your current read and post on your bookstagram with the tag #ClassicFridays.
