Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of a couple of prompts to answer. It's hosted by Jenn at The Daily Rhythm!

I'm currently reading...
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. It's not as good as I expected, but some of the quotes are stellar. The parallels between Park and Eleanor are really nice and sweet~
"But Park's face was like art. And not weird, ugly art either. Park had the sort of face you painted because you didn't want history to forget it"
"Eleanor was right: She never looked nice. She looked like art and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something"
Eleanor and Park really remind me of Hazel and Gus from The Fault in Our Stars. The premise of the books are different, but to me, the characters are similar.

Two misfits. 
One extraordinary love. 
Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor. 
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

For Christmas this year, did I end up buying any books for others?
For Christmas this year, I didn't end up buying any books at all! I wanted to buy the Shadowhunter's Codex, but the store sold out :( The only 'book' I bought was a 2016 diary for my sister... hope that counts?? At least she will be organised this year!
What about you? Leave your thoughts below!
Keep reading and loving books,
