Hey everyone! Today I decided to try something different. For those of you who have been following me for a while, you probably know that one of my new yearns resolutions for 2016 was to read more books. And I have been doing just that! I think I have started a new book every 1-2 weeks.
Last week I finished “The Clasp” by Sloane Crowley. It was a fun read. A GREAT read! Nothing was really taken away from reading it, I can’t say I really learned anything… but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless! This is Sloane’s first fiction novel and I have to say that it was one of the best written novels that I have read in a while. The way she wrote made it so easy to understand and relate. Her choice of language was perfect. She made the reader want to know every detail and on top that, she was hilarious!
In terms of the story (without giving too much away), it was about 3 college best friends who have grown up and have just entered adulthood. Friends are getting married, getting real jobs, etc. What’s interesting about these three is that they are different but somehow are caught in a little love triangle. Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor are in love with one or the other. Kezia loves Nathaniel, Nathaniel loves Kezia, and Victor loves Kezia as well. Sloane takes the three of them on an unexpected adventure in Paris (my dream destination – I think it’s a sign!) that actually has nothing to do with their feelings towards each other. They’re on a hunt for this really old, expensive necklace that was hidden in the 1800s. It’s actually quite cool!
I want to say more but it’s really hard to go further into it without giving away the entire story. Just take my word for it, this book is a fun read. It’s super relatable, funny, and cute. Who doesn’t love a love triangle/romance in general? I’m a freaking sucker for this crap.
Anyways, I encourage you all to read this book! If you have any book recommendations for me, please let me know in the comment section below!! I’m actually thinking about sharing more books that I read in the future, does that sound like a good idea? I love to read almost as much as I love fashion. Why not combine the two?! Once again, lemme know your thoughts below!
Love you all! Happy Friday!
