Sunday Book Club: Skippy Dies

 This was arguably the best book I read this summer.  Paul Murray does such a fabulous job of getting into a 14-year-old’s head.  A not just one 14-year-old, but several.  He is able to be the sensitive 14-year-old, the outcast, the popular one, the nerdy one.  He knows how they think, he knows how the… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Skippy Dies

I adored… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: The History of Love

Sunday Book Club: Beartown

Today’s book is Beartown, by Fredrik Backman.  I adored Backman’s earlier work, A Man Called Ove (again, if you haven’t read this yet, you must!), and I was expecting this work to be very similar. It wasn’t. That’s not to say it wasn’t good.  The characters are well-developed, as is the story.  Sports in a small town.… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Beartown
