"Book On It"

“Where is your bookmark?”

My bookmark is in the novel, “Fade Into You” by Nikki Darling. I heard Darling on the “Call Your Girlfriend” podcast. I loved her energy and writing process. The book is a wonder. The main character’s first name has not even been mentioned in the pages so far. I am on page 40. As a narrator, she keeps me on my toes. Is she talking to me? Am I going to be let more into the world the characters inhabit? I am a fly on the wall where smoke from their joint flows against.

The pages are full of vivid action with stunning rebellion. I am reading this book on the bus, having to pay close attention to not miss my stop.
