In this classic collection of magazine articles, Ephron does what she does best: embrace American culture with love, cynicism, and unmatched wit. From tracking down the beginnings of the self-help movement to dressing down the fashion world’s most powerful publication to capturing a glimpse of a legendary movie in the making, these timeless pieces tap into our enduring obsessions with celebrity, food, romance, clothes, entertainment, and sex. Whether casting her ingenious eye on renowned director Mike Nichols, Cosmopolitan magazine founder Helen Gurley Brown—or herself, as she chronicles her own beauty makeover—Ephron deftly weaves her journalistic skill with the intimate style of an essayist and the incomparable talent of a great storyteller.

She taught him how to trust. He showed her the meaning of true love. David and Erin did not have an easy romance, but the cloudy days made the sunny times so much more profound. Romancing the Wallflower is the best of Michelle Major. A journey of love, a story of hope and a road map to understanding. The attraction is a combination of subtle and intense. Romance sneaks up on your heart and after tightly taking hold, refuses to turn it loose.

Review: Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuiston
Diary of an Accidental Wallflower - Jennifer McQuiston

It's amazing what insomnia can do for your reading. I finished this book at 1 am.

 

This is the story of Clare, a shallow, immature, snobbish, spoiled viscount's daughter and Daniel, a doctor who should have stayed the hell away from her and her awful family. That wouldn't be much of a romance, but it would've made a lot more sense. The big conflict was the difference in class between Clare and Daniel, with a little racism thrown in (Daniel is half Roma, but the term Gyspy is thrown around a lot). Daniel was just too perfect, and all the women wanted to be bed by him! - I hate that characterization. Daniel was being a doctor and aspiring inventor (his invention was a medical device for regulating chloroform in gaseous forms for surgeries).

 

All the side characters were just awful: Clare's father leaves his family for long lengths of time every day; Clare's mother is an alcoholic and spends her days in a booze fueled shopping sprees; Lucy and Geoffrey are Clare's younger siblings who must have been raised in zoos since they don't seem to have one iota of common sense or manners; Lady Sophie and Rose are Clare's society "friends" that turn the book into a re-hash of high school; and Lady Austerly, Daniel's patient who plays matchmaker to Clare and Daniel and was the only decent character in the book.

 

The plot line was decent but the characters sucked and the writing was too modern at times (the book is set in Victorian England).

June 2017 Reading List
Diary of an Accidental Wallflower - Jennifer McQuiston
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir - Alan Cumming
In the Midst of Life - Jennifer Worth
Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir - Kelle Hampton

Once COYER starts on the 17th, I will be reading mostly from the reading list I created. I am going to try my hardest to use the books from the list for my BL-oploy plays.

 

The base library starts its summer reading program on the 19th. The theme this year is Reading by Design, with STEM being the focus on weekly activities and books read at the various story times. The kids have their own accounts for this program. Son wants to read more beginner reader books (he will be a first grader at the end of August); daughter wants more fantasy and fairy tales retellings.

 

I want to regain my BL-opoly mojo get to $100 bank balance by the end of the month (a $32 increase). I seem to put the game on the back burner in May with RT con and the big read. I still need to read Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuiston, a BL-opoly book from the end of May.

 

There are a couple of books that I want to read that are not related to BL-opoly or COYER. Those books are to keep me progressing on the Pop Sugar Challenge. Not My Father's Son by Alan Cummings (prompt - family member term in the title), In the Midst of Life by Jennifer Worth (prompt - Interesting Woman), Bloom by Kelly Hampton (Pop Sugar prompt - by/about a person with a disability).
