My goal for several years has been to read 50 books in one calendar year – 52 weeks – but I have always fallen off the rails around 25 books. This year, I’m twice as determined. I will be posting short reviews of each book with my thoughts and any recommendations I received for the book as well as a link to purchase the book from Amazon, (though I recommend checking your local library first). If you have questions, leave a comment! If you want to follow my journey, find me on Goodreads.
I met Scottie Knollin my freshman year of college through mutual friends. He visited Rome several times (my most vivid memory being the time we got his oil changed and drove around town) and a few of us visited his home in Douglasville once after going to a swing dance event in downtown Atlanta. I don’t really enjoy swing dancing so I’m not sure why I went beyond attempting to be an adventurous freshman. Either way, it led to a wonderful friendship with this guy who is now an author!
In his debut novel, Scottie writes about the road trip adventures that have shaped his life, tying these journeys to events of his childhood and life as a young adult in the Atlanta area. He writes as if to a friend, recounting recent events. What a privilege to sit in the passenger seat of these adventures through his writing! But… I still want to know what was in that attic.
