“The themes explored do center around the trials and tribulations of high school life. However, they are still relatable and universal enough that everyone can find a character that they can relate to.”
~ Under the Covers

I know. I’m late on this one but I was having a bit of a reading slump and wanted an audiobook that would be light and fun. That’s exactly what I got from this book.

ELEANOR & PARK is my first read from Rainbow Rowell and as soon as I began, I knew I was going to enjoy the rest of the book. Want to know why? Because Rowell makes me smile. Her characters are so adorably cute and funny that you can’t help but love them.

Both the hero and heroine are a little on the quirky side and I love that Rowell incorporated some diversity in her books. The banter was great and the language used wasn’t too juvenile for an adult reader like me, which makes me think that although this is technically a Young Adult book, adults can absolutely enjoy it too.

The themes explored do center around the trials and tribulations of high school life. However, they are still relatable and universal enough that everyone can find a character that they can relate to.

I listened to this one in audio format and was very happy with the narrator as well. I don’t know if they do all of Rowell’s books but if so, I’ll definitely be picking up the others to try in this format.

If you’re a fan of Jenny Han’s books, I would definitely give Rainbow Rowell a shot too.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I haven’t read this author yet, but I am chomping at the bit to! I have heard such great things. I think the one I’m most curious abut is Attachments.

Great review. I’m glad you enjoyed this one!
