In the 3 books released of Santino‘s 5 Borough series, Sunset Park has got to be my most favorite. To be honest, I read it last because I was so sure I wouldn’t like it.

I personally think that love (the romantic type) is not a very nice topic. One, I’m single. Two, it makes me flinch and uncomfortable. Three, go ahead, say it. You think I’m a sorry envious loser who doesn’t have a boyfriend so I don’t appreciate it.
Alright, internet is a free country.
But regardless of the premise above, I think I’m gonna have to talk about it anyway for my first 2014 post. I know. Totally sappy and overrated. I myself want to vomit by the mere idea. But shut up! I’m going to do this because I can.
