How a TWITTER POLL saved my life

Posted by Dee ^_^ on May 5, 2017 at 5:00 PM

It's finally happened. I woke up feeling ready to get some words in, but, I was faced with a dilemma. I wanted to read EVERYTHING all at once. So, what do you do at that point? Well, I took it to twitter. Because choices are hard and I'm an indecisive person, to my very core.

I gave my followers four options: Feral by James Demonaco (www.goodreads.com/book/show/30689356-feral); The Mystic Masseur by V. S. Naipaul (www.goodreads.com/book/show/54149.The_Mystic_Masseur?ac=1&from_search=true); The Necromancer (Book 4 of the Nicholas Flamel series) by Michael Scott (www.goodreads.com/book/show/6693332-the-necromancer) and The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli (www.goodreads.com/book/show/30653853-the-upside-of-unrequited) and stepped away from the app for a while.

Bear in mind that all of these options are books that I felt like I absolutely MUST READ, RIGHT NOW, all for different reasons. So, with a two day limit, I waited for my followers to decide my fate.


The results were almost unanimous: 75% of the results was in favor of Albertalli's novel, with Feral coming in second. Not a soul was feeling my other choices ( :( ;), but that's okay. I'm excited to get into this book, even as I know I will be shedding a few tears.

This was one of my highly anticipated books for 2017 and now, I'm finally going to read it! Be still my heart!

-- Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.

There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

Right? --

I'll catch you all next time!
