Standalone Sunday was created by Megan@bookslayerreads. For Standalone Sunday, you pick a standalone book (no series) that you love and share a little about it. If you don’t have any that you have already read, you can share one from your tbr.
The book I’m choosing this week is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
