This is a Good Book Thursday, June 13, 2024

Last week, I read Jennifer Smith’s Field Notes on Love and really enjoyed it, although it was a little weird reading something by Jennifer Smith since that’s my real name. I felt a twinge, wondering what it would be like to see my real name on one of my books, which was dumb. I’ve been Jennifer Crusie for so long, that most people don’t even know my real name, and if they do, still yell, “Crusie!” across the room when they want me. The point is, I would have been very happy to have my name on this book. It’s just a lovely, low key, YA romance between two strangers who are about to start college and end up traveling across the US by train together. No billionaires, no brother’s best friend, no fake dating, just two people on a train talking to each other and falling in love. Pure romance.

What did you read this week?
