Mon. | Dec. 12 – The Most Unique, Weird or Most Memorable Book(s) Read This Year – not necessarily your favorite book because it could be memorable for how bad or how much you liked or disliked the characters.
I’ve read a good deal of books this year and there are a couple that are sticking with me for various reasons. Note: I did like both books, but I also had some quibbles.
I loved how the story was told- past to present and not in chronological order by any means. However, the main character, Clara, frustrated me at times with her naive ways. I wanted to hand her a big ole cup of Folgers and say “WAKE UP! SMELL THE COFFEE! Do you KNOW what your husband is doing? What you are part of?!” However, as frustrated as I was with her at times, I also liked her. She was fabulously layered and not completely innocent, but not a total slimeball.
Holy hot mess, folks. This narrator teased me, frustrated me and sometimes made me want to punch a wall because of his smug, all-knowing ways. I even screamed out at the pool one day “WHO IS THE DAMN NARRATOR?” because for several chapters you are left in the dark about who is talking in this book.
*Have you read either of these books?*
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
