Dusty Reads (#2)

Dusty Reads is a meme hosted by Giselle @ Xpresso Reads
A "dusty read" is a book that you've had sitting on your shelf for a long time, but you haven't read yet.

This week's "dusty read" is...

Triangles by Ellen Hopkins

"In this first adult novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the unforgettable Crank trilogy, three female friends face midlife crises in a no holds-barred exploration of sex, marriage, and the fragility of life.
Ellen Hopkins has made her mark as the wildly popular author of several novels for young adults—every one of them a New York Timesbestseller, and every one a hard-hitting exploration of tough-to-tackle topics. Now, in Triangles, Hopkins brings her storytelling mastery and fearlessness to take on the challenges of adult dramas."
I'd won this one as an ARC from a Goodreads giveaways, and I obviously didn't look closely at the description. I just thought it was another Ellen Hopkins YA in verse. I would still like to read it, but I'm a little wary because of all this talk of "no holds barred sex". I hope that isn't all it's about, but it'll most likely be awhile until I read this one.


  1. Oh I saw a few reviews on this one and they were all saying it was great. I also have it on my TBR list :)

  3. LOL!!!!! I'd be a little wary of reading it after that too! x) But I've heard only awesome things about Ellen Hopkins, so hopefully you enjoy it besides the somewhat awkward hint!

    Awesome pick, Emma! :)

  4. Hoping you'll enjoy this one just as much as her YA titles! Sometimes it's hard to switch genres, but fingers crossed!
