Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie Are Home
My Jessica Darling series is finally completed! There's a good story behind this. I started reading Sloppy Firsts in Powerbooks Shang until I finished the whole book. And that did not happen in one sitting. I had to come back often to finish the story. I forgot how long it took me but finish it I did.
I was so in love with the character of Marcus Flutie more than the idea of him falling for Jessica Darling that I naturally started having daydreams with my own version of Marcus Flutie. Lol. Lakas maka-bagets.
I think I only got to read up to the third book and I was already in a denial state at that time because Marcus and Jessica's relationship aren't exactly the same gummy candy sweetness that they were 2 years before. Suffice to say when the fourth book in the series came out and reading from the book leaflet that Jessica and Marcus have broken up (they were already in college) I refused to read The Fourth Comings. Hahaha, and I haven't really read it yet. I thought that was the end of the series but Megan McCafferty played again with our hearts when she announced that there'll be a fifth and LAST book. The catch is it won't be out til after 2 years!
So I made a deal with myself that if Jessica and Marcus ended up being together in book 5 I'll buy all the books.
And after 3 years, here they are, finally complete.
You. Yes. You.
