Pick a Book Thursday #2

Pick-A-Book Thursday is a weekly meme brought you by me :) It is here for all of us to get our to be read piles down a little and help us get to the books we really want to read but just never got around to them. We can sit here weekly and talk about books we pulled from our jars or those that don't have jars, those who picked one off their shelf! Click here for the Original post for more details!

If you didn't get to pick from one of the jars, How are you coming with your pick from last time? Are you enjoying it so far?

Seventeenth Summer* I'm still working on Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly that I pulled from my Jar on Friday. I am starting to like it. It is very slow at first, so I am having a hard time getting into it. She doesn't fully describe the characters enough for me to really be able to picture them too well. It also seems to be in a time period back in the 50s or 60s though I don't know for sure. The way things are talked about though, it really seems that way. Like the kids just got out of high school yet they can go out and get beer without an issue, they go to the drugstore to get cokes after school, that sort of thing.

I am starting to like it a little more now, she is starting to gain my interest in the book so I am hoping this is where it starts to take off and I can fly through it. I haven't read a book that I didn't want to finish, but so far, its starting to feel like this might be my first book. Fingers crossed that isn't the case!


What did you guys pick this week out of your jar or off your shelf??

If you started it, are you enjoying it??
