Why you should read Eleanor and Park

Rainbow Rowell has touched my heart in such a way that I shall be feeling in my heart forever.I knooooooooooooooow I should already be NOT be reading from the young adult section but then I did not get to read much when I was younger so if you are here to judge keep that to yourself.

I love that section where I can find simplicity,innocence and naive becoming a real ninja and that I find mostly in the young adult section.So yeah Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park is this simple book that reminds you what love is.

It is so simple that it makes you feel guilty for how you complexify things.(Complexify is not a word but just go with it.)

I highlighted the fuck out of this book and almost finished my grapefruit smelling highlighter but no regrets.

”Holding Eleanor’s hand was like holding a butterfly.Or a heartbeat.Like holding something complete,and completely alive.”

”Park could not imagine what his face had looked like when he touched Eleanor.Like somebody taking the first drink in a Diet Pepsi commercial.Over the Top Bliss.”

”Was it possible to rape someone’s hand?”

”She would rather look mad than look like she had spent all night thinking about how beautiful his lips are.”

”she never looked nice.she looked like art and art was not supposed to look nice it was supposed to make you feel something”

Only some of my favorite parts of this book.Written really well.Put on your judgmental glasses and tag me naive but then  yeah this is so adorable.I would do all I could to make someone feel like holding my hands would be like holding a heartbeat…..this is a beautiful book and I do not know why it is not getting the attention it needs…..

Love,Rae

    I read this book for college & I loved it. I don’t care if it’s a young adult novel & nobody should either. It’s a good book. It gives me a feeling of nostalgia. A feeling I know a lot of people enjoy. Otherwise they wouldn’t spend $100+ on a very old video game. The book itself reminds me of a song by Bon Iver where the singer sings “I’m in love with your honor..”
