I was good with this quirky story up until three last few pages. Maybe it was how the author alluded to future. I got a little confused on if it was really going to happen or if it was just a hallucination. A more clearly defined ending would have made this a pick for me. #meh #2017christyread #bookclub
Found this beauty at the dollar store and man was it lovely! The story of a relationship between two flawed people against the background of one of them going to the moon. Considering I had a dream the other night that I was going to the moon, I decided this was a timely pick 🤓
Netzer beautifully explores the struggle between acceptance and individuality. The struggle is not only to be accepted by society, but also the battle to accept yourself as a flawed human being. This book reminded me of a saying from St. Francis De Sales - "Be who you are, and be that well."
I've been really getting into the bookish podcasts the last couple of days, All the Books, what should I read next, Get booked and Reading Envy to name a few. The only issue is my rapidly growing TBR list, of which Shine, Shine, Shine (from Get Booked) is just one!! I've also been getting stuck into the garden while listening and thought I'd share my magnificent new rhubarb plant. Let's hope he survives!
This was such a delightful read! This was apparently huge when it came out but I missed it. So I went into it not really knowing what it was about and was not disappointed. I would comp this to the Rosie books by Graeme Simsion. Characters that are easy to fall in love with and a unique idea make me a happy reader. Plus it filled one of my bingo squares!
I haven't been doing the photo challenge this month, but I had to jump in today after seeing everyone's blue books. Blue is my favorite color, and the main color in our living room (decided upon after I found this amazing mirror). Yay blue! 💙
I liked this book but I got very lost at the end, which left me wanting more. Father and son on the autism spectrum are fascinating characters. The wife/mother's main quirk is that she has no hair, on her head or her body. Their lives are fascinating. I only wish the ending had been better.
