Leave Me by Gayle Forman
(to be released September 6, 2016)

I just read Gayle Forman’s upcoming new release this week — her first book for adults! My review will be along shortly. Meanwhile, here’s a little exchange that made me smile for all the right reasons — an exchange between a pair of roommates who just love to bicker:

“Todd’s all pissy because I went out with Fritz.”

“On a date,” Todd added, as if that sealed the indictment.

“Yes, fine.” Sunita threw up her hands. “On a date.”

“That you didn’t tell me about.”

“That I didn’t tell you about.”

“When it was our night to watch Outlander.”

“We can DVR it. I don’t see see what the big deal is.”

They had me at Outlander.

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

  1. “When it was our night to watch Outlander” I’ve never even seen Outlander, but I’d not be happy either if we planned to watch a favourite TV show! :’)
    It’s a quick, funny passage though! I like it! 😀

      • You’re welcome! It great when they can ease that tension and heavy content when there is the light, fun scenes like this one! 😊

        I added my post to your linky thing! 😊
