As most of you know, I’m taking a break from the blog for the month of August, mostly so I can get work done on my manuscript. (And it’s working – amazing how focusing on one thing actually promotes creativity). But, if you’re anything like me, your brain still needs to rest. You still need to laugh. And if you’re a reader, you most definitely need a stack of brainless summer reads to fulfill all reading responsibilities.
Insert The Knockoff by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza, for your summer reading pleasure.
The book is fun. And funny. And horribly stereotypical toward the Millennial generation (which Osheta the Millennial and Cara the Gen Xer talk about in depth). Sometimes all the drama between the two characters, Imogen Tate and Eve Morton, felt a little too canned, like the authors were just begging for a movie adaptation. But the bottom line is this: it really is the perfect summer read.
Also, be sure to grab a copy of The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love, our August book of the month. I just started it a couple of days ago, and let me tell you: this YA read is FUN. If you like nerdy, Comic Con-loving high school students, then I have a feeling you’ll love this book.
So, The Knockoff: did you read it? Like it, hate it, decide to use it as a dartboard because it was that disliked? Otherwise, what’s the BEST book you’ve read this summer?
