#4.12: Read 25 New Books; #6.7: Read BuzzFeed's 21 Best YA Books of 2013 – Eleanor & Park

BuzzFeed's 21 Best YA of 2013

101 in 1001

"'Bono met his wife in high school,' Park says.
'So did Jerry Lee Lewis,' Eleanor answers.
'I'm not kidding,' he says.
'You should be," she says, 'we're 16.'
'What about Romeo and Juliet?'
'Shallow, confused, then dead.'
'I love you,' Park says.
'Wherefore art thou,' Eleanor answers.
'I'm not kidding,' he says.
'You should be.'

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you'll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under."

This book was so many things. It was passionate, and sexy, and loving, and realistic, and funny, and, in the end, heartbreaking. I don't want to give too many details away, because I think everyone should read this and because I'm too exhausted to think of anything witty to say, but just know that I highly recommend it. 

Thanks for reading, no one!
