Highlighted Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Rebeca at “Books and Messy Buns”. Anyone can join, you just have to do the following:
- Pick up the book you’re currently reading (be it a physical or electronic copy)
- Find a sentence you like (because it’s funny or cute or mysterious or whatever you find interesting)
- Highlight the sentence
- Make a post in your own blog where you share your highlighted sentence and link back to my blog as the host
My highlighted text today comes from Schooled in Revenge by Jesse Lasky:
My husband and I are big fans of the television series, Revenge. We are both also in love with reading. Wide-reading is actually one of my New Years Resolutions and so in my attempt to leap beyond the best-sellers I’ve turned to lesser known titles like the one above. (For more on my 24 Book Challenge see this link.) My husband actually purchased this book for me and stuffed it my Christmas stocking as a gift.
I’m halfway through reading Schooled in Revenge, a novel based on the television show that I love.
One thing I enjoy about the book is that there is different cast of characters from those on the show. I’m learning about new people of affluent America. The television show is set in the Hamptons among an elite cast living off of fortunes build on deception. The above highlighted text draws a comparison between the setting of the television series and the setting of the book which is Napa Valley. I am able to indulge my desire to be rich and famous through Revenge. It’s a guilty pleasure.
