The 15 Book Greatbigjar January Challenge

‘Why be happy when you can be normal?’ by Jeanette Winterson. Admittedly it was in the wee small hours that I completed it but I do remember it all – honest! After reading ‘Oranges are not the only fruit’ all those years ago (I can’t believe that it was published back in 1985) this book definitely re-kindled my love of literature¬† that’s just a little bit different. Although this book may be a slightly sad story of family life at its worst, it keeps you guessing all the way and you smile with relief and happiness at its conclusion.

Here’s my review let me know what you think.


Now onto Book 2 – ‘A Gathering Light’ by Jennifer Donnelly, thanks for the recommendation Julie.

Read from cover to cover in 1.73 days right? Bring it on…
