Rory’s Book Club: How the light gets in

“How the light gets in” by M.J. Hyland had all kinds of strikes against it.  I hate the word auspicious.  I know what it means, I’ve looked it up in the dictionary several times.  In my experience though, auspicious means that it is something new & different, but the reason it is new & different is because it is craptacular & everyone else had enough sense not to do it.  Plus, when I point out the craptacular-ness of it, people will think I’m a simpleton & will tell me that it is “auspicious”.  So when the back cover of this book bragged it’s international auspicious debute I had my doubts.  Then I noticed that there were not one, but two reviews printed right under the word auspicious likening the main character to Holden Caulfield. It’s the story of a 16 year old Australian who becomes a foreign exchange student to get away from her unhappy home life.  She is a lot like Holden Caulfield, but it’s up to you decide whether that is a good thing or not. For me it was just a 2.5 poptart book.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    “The reason it is new & different is because it is craptacular and everyone else had enough sense not to do it!” Hee! What a great quote.

    I will be spending the rest of this week looking for opportunities to use your line 🙂
