Behind The Scenes

The 8 Stages of Reading “Playing The Part” by Jen Turano


You may be aware of the fact that Jen Turano is one of my favorite authors ever.
Like, top-notch-squealing-when-I-get-a-new-release-in-the-mail-or-find-new-information-about-works-in-progress favorite. I adore her work!

If this is new information to you, you may want to read my book reviews…

(After a Fashion, Book 1; In Good Company, Book 2; Playing the Part, Book 3)


Especially if you haven’t read my book review of Playing the Part yet, you should head over there and read it now so that everything below makes a little more sense.

So, without further ado, I present to you all the emotions you experience whilst reading Playing the Part.

#2. Opening the book:

#3. Bram appears:

#5. Every scene with Silas or Nigel:


Ick. *Shivers*


#6. Every adorable scene between Lucetta and Bram:



#7. When you reach the last page:

#8. Pulling it from the shelf to hold it and flip through its pages one more time:
