Good Morning Bloggers! Once again I am in the library starting a new essay, however I decided to take a few minutes out and blog to you! So, I am finally making my way through this challenge and it’s the last couple of days. So, today is a book that makes you cry. I find these questions hard because there are my fail safe answers, and then there are my slightly different answers! So I’m going to be clever today. (Well attempt to be!)
So… my fail safe option would have to be the Book Thief by Marcus Zusak; if you haven’t read it you need to get your hands on IT NOW! This gorgeous, captivating account of a nine-year-old foster child during the holocaust is probably at the top of my cry pile. Death’s unsentimental narration makes it all the more raw.
The second is a little different, and that is ‘Leftovers’ by Stella Newman. It’s not an all out extremely emotional roller-coaster, however it made me giggle horrendously at times and there were a few tears of laughter. At times I had to explain myself for laughing out loud! A brilliant book that is definitely worth a look! (Also expect a review soon!)
According to a magazine, Susie is a ‘Leftover’ – a post Bridget-Jones 30 something who has neither her dream man, job, nor home. She doesn’t even own six matching dinner plates. According to her friend Rebecca, Susie needs to get over her ex, Jake, start online dating – or at least stop being so rude to every guy who tries to chat her up. But Susie’s got a plan. If she can just make it the 307 days till her promotion and bonus, she can finally quit and pursue her dream career in food, then surely everything else will fall into place. If only her love life wasn’t so complicated…A sharp, witty and refreshing novel about love, friendship and enjoying what’s left on the table.
