Oh, so I'm reading my sole book for the readathon and I see this mini challenge over at Shaina Reads:
I love my covers. But some really great books' covers just don't do anything for me. Like these:
Overly literal cover; pained or constipated? Chunkster. As I navigated this novel, I had to stop and breathe at many points. Literally. When I finished, I didn't pick anything else up, if only to just soak up and realize how beautifully tragic and real this book was. Amazing read: Dark, realistic, disturbing, epic. Read it if you dare.
Ugly pig-out cover. But I loved this memoir! This is special -- read it! It will make you realize just how precious our family members are, with all their quirks and their faults. It will make you realize how fleeting and forgetful we can be of our family histories if we fail to capture the stories told orally.
