I went into this book knowing that Eleanor Oliphant was probably not fine, but then I read the story of a young woman working with her mental illness even though she doesn’t know that she’s hurting.
As everyone may already know, I’ve been in a pretty bad book slump lately. Stories aren’t hitting me with the passion and drive I typically read and it’s been bugging me. So on a whim, I picked up THE BUCKET LIST, a new story by Georgia Clark coming out in August and I suddenly feel like my slump has finally lifted its veil.
I really love a good coming-of-age story and sometimes we all need a little break from all the serious reads. It’s summertime after all.
I really wanted to like this book, but for some reason I couldn’t even finish it. I’ll try to be honest in my review below, but I do encourage you to try and read it if it’s been of interest to you.
It’s the weekend of your sister’s birthday and you’re excited to spend some time with your older brothers and sister one last time before heading to college. Everything is going to go according to plan, right? You couldn’t be more wrong.
My review of this book honestly doesn’t do it justice. I had a ton of thoughts here and I tried to boil it down to its essentials without spoiling too much. Here goes nothing.
I approach this novel like it was another diverse read with a distinct voice from an Asian American author. What I got was a heck of a lot more. I’ve also got a cute trailer for the book I want to share. Check it out below!
