He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my دل slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone آپ can’t have. To want someone آپ shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first love – the pain, the exhilaration, the ups and downs. Only problem is, she’s doing it solo – unrequited style. She’s been in love with Ryan since the eighth grade, but now he’s dating her emotionally stunted best friend, Brianna, and Sarah is forced to stumble through each day, the pain of seeing them together pulling at her insides with every سیکنڈ that passes.
Brianna has crappy parents who clearly don’t want her around, and Ryan seems to make Brianna feel like she matters to someone. At least, that’s how it looks to Sarah, which is why Sarah is so hell bent on keeping her feelings completely and totally to herself. How could she take Ryan away from Brianna, when she has so little to start with?
Besides, there’s no way Sarah could compete with the sassy, sexiness that is Brianna – and Brianna makes sure Sarah knows it every single day. Brianna might have crappy parents, but that’s no excuse for the way she treats those around her. Its obvious to the reader that Ryan is nothing مزید than a self-esteem booster for Brianna, and while she might actually love Sarah, she doesn’t know how to دکھائیں it. I couldn’t help but wonder if Brianna only kept Sarah around to make herself feel better.
But then, it seems, Ryan sees through Brianna’s dance, and decides to take his affections elsewhere – right into the garden of Sarah! Turns out, Ryan has kind of been in love with Sarah for ages, but got all caught up in the whirlwind that is Brianna and time just got away. But he wont stand for that anymore. He wants Sarah, and nothing – nothing – will stand in his way.
Not even Brianna, when she walks in on Ryan and Sarah lying curled up together in Sarah’s bed.
The Unwritten Rule is interesting exploration through the rules of dating and friendship. Were Ryan and Sarah wrong to pursue each other when Brianna was still so clearly caught in the middle. Did they consider her feelings enough? With the way Brianna was treating the pair of them, should they have considered her feelings at all? When is it okay to break the rules of friendship for matters of the heart? These are all سوالات I asked myself repeatedly throughout this story.
Sarah and Ryan are both likable characters, but I found Brianna to be shallow, callous and difficult to read. She’s clearly got some emotional issues, but the way she treats those around her makes my stomach squirm. You’d think, with her ہوم life being so terrible and all, she’d value the love of her دوستوں a little more.
The Unwritten Rule is a ہوم run for Elizabeth Scott. This is a great, contemporary chick lit read!

Teaser Quote: “I wasn’t happy with you? Brianna says. “Almost eight weeks, Ryan. And then آپ go and – ” she glares at me. “Is this my anniversary present? آپ could have at least picked someone decent. Someone I’d believe آپ want and not just who آپ used to make yourself feel better.”

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope آپ take just a few منٹ out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling آپ about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away سے طرف کی link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in love with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...

My Life in France سے طرف کی Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
You must know Julia Child سے طرف کی name if not سے طرف کی reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the ہوم سے طرف کی TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can آپ belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the باورچی خانے, باورچی خانہ before moving to France and attended cooking...
