Mehso-so

This #HorrifiedReads pick wasn't as good as the first one. The writing isn't great & it's SO typical: teenage girls in CA with lots of friends & perfect loving parents. The youngest sister is a boy-crazy flirt; middle sister Cindy is an athletic tomboy; and the oldest is wise & sophisticated. Nothing special or original, but a quick, fun read that reflects the era it was written in. I give it a grudging 2.75/5 because (see comments)

TK-421 I liked that the battle of the sexes surf contest wasn't won by the boy. Cindy refused to back down and in the end, won not only the contest, but the guy, too. 2y
Soubhiville I‘ve gotta get into my last box of books to see if I‘ve got any #horrifiedreads type books left! If not, I‘ll take a trip to McKay‘s used books this weekend and see what I can find 😊. Wonder if the library still has any of these...? 2y
RebL I swear these books are so familiar. 2y
Sace I hear you in the writing! I think what I've been most horrified about is how bad my taste was back in the day (it might still be bad.) 2y

I never manage to follow a monthly plan so I don't have a specific list, but I do have a few goals in mind. One of those is to try to participate in several photo challenges. I'm already a day behind, so I'm combining multiple prompts into one post about my #OctoberTBR!

#OctoberMustRead: library loans that expire soon

#OctoberMostAnticipated: 80s teen romance novel read-along, @RestlessFickleBookSlut's #HorrifiedReads. Sure to be a scream!

RebL Ack! I helped the kiddo with college stuff all weekend and didn't get to my favorite bookstore to look for my 80s teen romances. I may not enjoy the errand, but I'm going to love the reading. 2y
Sace Good luck with keeping up. I love the photo challenges, but I never seem to be able to keep up with them. Those 80s romances look good! 2y

TK-421 @RestlessFickleBookSlut Thanks! I used to try to post one photo for each challenge every day, but it got to be too much. Now, I just pick & choose prompts and combine them if I can. I'm not sure where to start with the 80s books. Do you have yours picked yet? 2y
TK-421 @RebL Hope you find lots of 80s books to read! Can't wait to see what everyone is reading! 2y
Sace Is it cheating that I already started reading Superflirt back in September? 😊 2y
TK-421 @RestlessFickleBookSlut I won't tell anyone lol 2y
Sace Whew! 😥 My secret is safe! 2y
