WEDNESDAY'S WISH I HAD THE TIME #3
I've started a new Wednesday post about books I would like to read. These books may not be new, up-and-coming releases; they might be books that have been available for years. The idea behind my WEDNESDAY'S WISH I HAD THE TIME post will be to highlight books I'd really like to get around to reading one of these days.
This week's pick is GUYAHOLIC by Carolyn Mackler. It is the sequel to VEGAN VIRGIN VALENTINE. I enjoyed VVV when I read it quite some time ago, so I'm looking forward to GUYAHOLIC. It is definitely in my TBR pile.
Here's a summary courtesy of Barnes & Noble:
Sometimes it takes getting hit with a hockey puck to help you see what’s good for you! Carolyn Mackler is back — and V is off on a solo road trip — in this funny, poignant follow-up to VEGAN VIRGIN VALENTINE.V Valentine is the queen of meaningless hookups. Ever since her mom dumped her with her grandparents, she has bounced from guy to guy. But in the spring of senior year, a fateful hockey puck lands her in the lap of Sam Almond. Right from the start, things with Sam are different. V is terrified to admit it, but this might be meaningful after all. On the afternoon of graduation, V receives some shocking news.
Later, at a party, she makes an irreversible mistake and risks losing Sam forever. When her mom invites her to Texas, V embarks on a cross-country road trip with the hopes of putting two thousand miles between herself, Sam, and the wreckage of that night. With her trademark blend of humor and compassion, Carolyn Mackler takes readers on an unforgettable ride of missed exits, misadventures, and the kind of epiphanies that come only when you’re on a route you’ve never taken before.
