Heya everybody! This is my second installment of Flashback Friday. In this feature, I revisit one of the books that I’ve read but might not have reviewed. It’s kinda like an appreciation post. This week, I’m going back to freshman year when I read The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider.
Favorite Quote: “If everything really does get better, the way everyone claims, then happiness should be graphable. But that’s crap, because better isn’t quantifiable.”
I think this book deserves a solid four stars. I was just looking at my shelf, as I do, and saw this book. It’s really pretty and a different story in general. I really wish that I remember more about it. Maybe it’s a book that I’ll reread eventually. Who knows?
This book was different because it didn’t follow the usual contemporary story arc. Don’t get me wrong, I actually love that story arc but it was nice to have a change. There are some of the same obvious moments in the book; it really isn’t unpredictable or anything like that. Unfortunately, I only remember the major plot points because it was awhile ago.
I remember one of my friends that read this before me and said that I would really enjoy it. I wasn’t in a rush or anything to pick up this book but then my English class assigned it to read. I was pretty happy that this one was the one that was chosen because sometimes reading assignments can really suck. I read it pretty fast, prepared my presentation on it, and shelved it away.
