30 Day Book Challenge: Day 9


Day 9: A Book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving*

The Goldfinch

Goodreads Link, Review

The little * is for the fact that I didn’t love this book.  I liked it, much more than I thought I would being that I usually don’t like most books that are considered Big Lit and won awards like the Pulitzer…. I’m just not that cerebral.  This one though struck a chord with me for a reason I will be posting about on Day 25.  I am glad that I listened to it instead of reading it as I might not have stuck it out.  The fact that I was elbow deep in wool last year and nowhere near a wi-fi signal in order to download something else was the reason I kept listing.  I’m glad that I did.  This is not a happy story or even a really sad one for the most part.  It is an interesting story about letting go and what we do to keep those who are important to us in our lives. 

Does the 30 Day Book Challenge sound like fun to you?  Why not join me!  Below is the graphic I borrowed off the internet, feel free to borrow it from me.  I will be posting pictures of the books I select each day to my Instagram account too.  Be sure to follow me over there to see my picture for today’s selection.
