#Friday Reads: March 24

Happy Friday!

Normally I would have a Friday Reads video for you, but I didn’t get an opportunity to film one this week. But fear not, because I’ve got a quick written Friday Reads just for you!

28007954Last week, I was reading The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close. I did finish it and holy moly, I absolutely loved this book! Beth is the perfect narrator and her skeptical approach to politics set just the right tone for the novel. Close did a phenomenal job writing the environments of D.C. and then Texas – I haven’t been to D.C., and I’m not a regular visitor to Sugar Land, but there was a sense of familiarity in Close’s writing. Between a great narrator, fantastic settings, and just enough drama, I could read this book FOREVER.

That’s what I’m reading this week! I’d love to know what you’re reading, if you have thoughts on these books, or if you’ve got recommendations for what I should read next, so let me know in the comments or over on Twitter.

If you want more Game & Read, you can find us on Youtube, TwitterInstagram, and Facebook, and keep up with all of our shenanigans by listening to the Game & Read podcast.

Until next time, happy reading!
