Hey, everybody! I know one time I told you guys that I write down nearly all my thoughts in my phone notes while reading books. These come from when I love a scene, hate a character’s actions, predict something, really anything. But that does mean there will be SPOILERS. So beware if you want to read this book, which is ‘Round Midnight by Laura McBride, you may be spoiled for certain parts of the book. This is also going to be a series on my blog and I’m so excited about it. But without further ado, let’s get started.
** Beware, this post does contain spoilers for the novel ‘Round Midnight by Laura McBride **
WOAH CORAL IS RAYS DAUGHTER (or granddaughter) AND THEY GO TO DELS FUNERAL AND SO MUCH TIME HAS PASSED BECAUSE MARshall IS IN HIGH SCHOOL??? ALSO IS JUNE OKAY NOW CAUSE SHE’S AT THE FUNERAL DUDE IS CORAL JUNE & EDDIES DAUGHTER THAT MAKES SENSE WHY AUGUSTA (her “mom”) BROUGHT HER TO THE FUNERAL CAUSE MARSHALL WOULD ONLY BE LIKR TWO YEARS OLDER AND SHE WOULDNT KNOW HER DAD BC HE DIED BEFORE SHE WAS ABLE TO BE ALIVE OMG and SHES NOT AS DARK BC SHES MIXED BC JUNES HERBMOM
This happened at a point in the novel when Augusta took her daughter Coral to Del’s funeral and Coral couldn’t figure out why she was there when she didn’t know Del, Marshall, or June. This is me trying to help Coral figure out why she’s there. I’m sure a couple pages or paragraphs passed in the middle of this though because that’s when we find out just a little bit more about the situation and more things make sense.
-kinda disappointed that it was so obvious but also ploT TWIST AMIRITE. also a little rushed in the explanation, wasn’t panned out much for prediction time
This also clarifies my thoughts for the previous comment and helps me clarify what I was trying to say. It’d probably be best for me to write these sooner after I finish the book, haha.
woaH i love that they made coral a singer bc of eddie! that just connected
So obviously at this point, we already have confirmed or majorly confirmed that Eddie is Coral’s dad. Coral was introduced as an amazing singer and obviously so was Eddie as that’s how he met Del and June. It hadn’t really connected to me that soon that Coral probably sang because Eddie did too. But I loved that little piece and how it connected the two.
HONORATA MOVED ONTO CORALS STREET
I think here we had been aware of Coral’s street having lots of open house and then at a separate point we were aware that Honorata was looking to move but we didn’t know where. I think it was how Coral described her new neighbor was how I realized, oh snap!, that’s Honorata!
That’s all for today, folks! Did you enjoy this? Do you think I should continue? I’m going to anyway because I realized I hate throwing away thoughts that didn’t go into reviews. Do you take notes while you read too?
