Literature Lust: Love Letter for Readers and Writers
February 2, 2020 | #5
January is over, and I hope that you filled it with great reading on those long, cold winter nights. Luckily, there is no season for reading. Winter. Spring. Summer. Fall. Every day is a great day to enjoy a book!
Warm words and wishes!
Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger is no ordinary book. It's a coming-of-age-murder-mystery-relationship-primer-dealing-with-grief-finding-faith kind of book.
Have you read Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout yet?
Do you finish a book if you don't like the main character?
Thank you, Joan, for this recommendation! Since Krueger is known for his mysteries, I expected just that - a nice murder mystery. What I got was so much more!
Ordinary Grace is a
great read about the universal emotions of loss and grief, finding faith, and the small miracles that shape us.
Sometimes an unlikable character impacts you the most. Did I like Olive Kitteridge? Not really. But did I learn from her? Grow to respect her? You bet.
