Tuesday's Novel Spotlight (30)

Hello everybody and welcome to Tuesday's Novel Spotlight. I know books are released today and I usually talk about them, BUT! This week I'm doing a Novel Week based on;

Triangles by Ellen Hopkins! I had the liberty of reading an ARC of this novel way back in June and I was so stoked when I opened the package and saw this that I dropped everything and began reading this novel. But to see what I thought about it, you'll have to wait until Friday when I put my review up! But let's see the synopsis. Synopsis! I summon thee!

In this emotionally powerful novel, three women face the age-old midlife question: If I'm halfway to death, is this all I've got to show for it?

Holly, filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Andrea, a single mom and avowed celibate, watches her friend Holly's meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for-a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly's castaway husband?

Then there's Marissa. She has more than her fair share of challenges-a gay teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts. As one woman's marriage unravels, another one's rekindles. As one woman's family comes apart at the seams, another's is reconfigured into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman's up is another one's down, and all three of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness before it is through.

*This synopsis was taken from goodreads.com

So what do you guys think? Does it sound good, because it sure is! Check back tomorrow to see who I cast as Marissa, Holly and Andrea and then Friday to see my review of the novel. See you all later! =D

Oh hey, it's the novel you have been telling me about.

I will put it on my to read list since as of late books about women usually deal with those who are just starting to make their way through adulthood and not those dealing with midlife.

Can't wait to read it! So stoked. Ellen Hopkins is such a genius. A literary Rumpelstiltskin weaving ordinary words into gold.
