A book character you feel a strong connection to
I told myself I was not going to put this book on any more lists, and look at me. I have lied to myself.
But honestly, Jennifer Saint does an excellent job of making a classic mythological character relatable to everyone who has ever dealt with a bad romance or unfair family situation. Just look at this quote:
“I would not let a man who knew the value of nothing make me doubt the value of myself.“Ariadne
I feel like that’s all you need.
A book you loathe
I’m Thinking of Ending Things has a 3.5 star rating on Goodreads, and I can’t figure out why. It was touted as having one of the best twist endings ever. I am here to tell you that by the time you get to that twist ending, you won’t care at all about what happens. You can read my full review here, and I assure you that it is still the lowest rating I’ve given a book.
A book that is super unrealistic, and unreasonable, but you love it all the same
This book is ridiculous. The characters break every rule of Victorian England, and the hijinks are absurd. However, this is the best retelling I’ve ever read. I’m HERE for this. Full review is here.
A book that made you pull out your hair in frustration
I did not finish this one. I’m sorry. I know some people love it, but the major historical leaps went from being funny to being weird and unnecessary. I know that sounds super hypocritical compared to what I just wrote about Pride and Premeditation, but My Calamity Jane features real people from history and completely changes their life stories. This includes making Bill Hickok a “father figure” to Calamity Jane when most stories and historical reports point to them being romantically involved (there’s a whole musical about it starring my girl, Doris Day), and that was just icky to me.
A book that made you feel whole
