A Book You Can Finish in a Day
I didn't start this book thinking that I would finish this in a day or that this would be my entry for this category in the reading challenge. I think this is one of those categories that needs to happen on its own--I don't want the pressure of having to finish a book in a day, you know?
Anyhow, this the second book I've read by this author--the first was The Art of Forgetting, which I enjoyed. When this story opens, Libby Miller learns that she has a rare and bad form of cancer on the same day that her husband tells her he's gay. Not a good day by any measure. Libby grew on me as the book progressed. At the beginning, I found Libby's faux curse words to be a little much, and her reactions to all of her dismal news just seemed a little far-fetched. But as the book progressed, she improved. I recommend this book.
