First Impressions

“No two persons ever read the same book” – Edmund Wilson

Every story leaves its unique imprint on the hearts and minds of its readers. That imprint may come from its title, cover art, unique plot, or familiarity with the author’s previous work. The story may change your life, emotionally trigger you, or make you regret the hours you spent reading it that you’ll never get back!

This month’s book selection is no different. What unique imprint (or impression) has this book made on Kayla and Monica (the 2Sistas)? Let’s find out…

The Best Parts

It’s that part of the story you remember well after you’ve finished it.  It’s your personal take-away that makes spending hours of reading a story worth your time; and promises you’ll still remember the story years from now…or, at least that portion of it.

For Kayla and Monica, the best parts of this month’s book selection were…

Didn’t See THAT Comin’!

It’s those moments in a story that leave you feeling blindsided. Those jaw dropping, eye bulging, WTF kindda moments you never expected to happen. Reading them makes you feel like you just got slapped for no reason by your kind, introverted aunt (on your momma’s side).

There are portions of a story that bring out #thebooknerdattitude . That’s full on neck and eye roll, scrunch face, and the “ugghh, really?!” – just for emphasis. You’ve come across some of those parts in stories. We know you have.

All In My Feelings

Every story has that one character that pulls at your heart strings, makes you laugh, reminds you of someone you know, or just gets on your nerves! Their back story or what they go through during the story evokes some sort of strong emotion you didn’t expect.

Burning Questions

Ever read a story that leaves you wanting to call the author and ask some questions because, well, #booknerdsarecurious? Or the kind of story that makes you wonder how the character’s life ends up or what happens to them next?

Well, after reading this month’s book selection, Kayla and Monica have a couple of questions….
