What is S. C. Megale reading?

Featured at Writers Reads: S. C. Megale, author of This Is Not a Love Scene: A Novel.

Her entry begins:
Grasp your phone or desktop firmly over what I am about to tell you. I'm a student at the University of Virginia and have not read a work of fiction for pleasure since reading Clifford the Big Red Dog in the library and crying because I love this and I'm tired and the coffee store closed and I have to read hundreds of pages of Suetonius and Oceanography. I'm a History major. A lot of primary sources. What I'm immensely proud of, though, is my collection of books at home. When Borders Bookstore closed, I purchased a shelf off their store floor. That shelf, now a relic, is my pride and joy, holding over a hundred of the coolest, rarest, most valued books.

About This Is Not a Love Scene, from the publisher:
Funny, emotional, and refreshingly honest, S.C. Megale’s This is Not a Love Scene is for anyone who can relate to feeling different while navigating the terrifying and thrilling waters of first love.

Lights, camera—all Maeve needs is action. But at eighteen, a rare form of muscular dystrophy usually stands in the way of romance. She's got her friends, her humor, and a passion for filmmaking to keep her focus off consistent rejection...and the hot older guy starring in her senior film project.

Tall, bearded, and always swaying, Cole Stone is everything Maeve can't be. And she likes it. Between takes, their chemistry is shockingly electric.

Suddenly, Maeve gets a taste of typical teenage dating life, but girls in wheelchairs don’t get the hot guy—right? Cole’s attention challenges everything she once believed about her self-image and hopes for love. But figuring this out, both emotionally and physically, won't be easy for either of them. Maeve must choose between what she needs and what she wants, while Cole has a tendency to avoid decisions altogether. And the future might not wait for either.
