Comment on One Day – David Nicholls by Konnie

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 21:08:07 +0000

I have always been looking for a book similar to "One Day" just as you have so while doing so I came across your blog. Although this is a very, very late response, I would like to suggest a book to you that probably is not the same as "One Day" because seriously, what book can come close? So I'll just go to the next best thing, which is the "feeling" that the book left me with which I think was similar to "One Day" - you might want to give "You Had Me at Hello" by Mhairi McFarlane a try It is such an unknown sleeper, but I consider it one of my all-time faves, and I'm always searching for books similar to that one as well! If you do read it, let me know what you think. I have to say there's only been two books that had me full out "ugly crying", and they are "One Day" and "The Fault in Our Stars". Good Luck!

Amazing! Do remember the room type? And maybe also the room number? Need to have the same.

Hi Simon - just discovered you and your blog as I have signed up for your blogging workshop at the Chester Literature festival. I read The Underground Railroad a couple of months ago and thought it was excellent. I was fascinated by the description of the railroad and gullible enough/ill-informed to believe it was real. I loved Cora's resilience and was desperate for her to escape. Kept me reading late into the night.

Comment on Call Me By Your Name – Andre Aciman by Mark

I am newer to the book and find myself searching on the Internet to connect with others about it. The sexual nature of it isn't so much shocking to me as it is honest, when I remember what it was like to be 17, processing and experiencing my own body. So I would prefer to call it honest, although I do understand how so many are taken aback by several of the graphic scenes. I expect those reactions align in some way with the stigmas that keep boys like Elio closeted about their bisexuality. In other cases, readers prefer not to be presented with such material. I don't mind at all. For me, that Elio and Oliver shared all kinds of bodily functions together, even helping Elio vomit in the street, was a symbol of how the barrier that was there between two young man had been defeated, and nothing was left between them to diminish their love other than Elio's lingering self doubts.

Hi there, you're adorable! I just discovered your blog. I have Dercum's too and also love to read. I was an editor for most of my career, so I got paid to read all day, happy sigh! I just stopped working in 2016. What a great blog you have; I'm so glad I discovered it! Gentle hugs and hope the little buggers (lipomas) aren't giving you too much trouble.

Gillespie and I could not have been written for you--because I'm quite certain it was written solely for me! It is perfection! Anyone who loved it as much as I did must be a kindred spirit! I also enjoy your youtube videos and blog. My best to you from Wisconsin :)

[…] of this blog will know that back in 2011 I then fell head over heels with Harris’s second novel Gillespie & I; a book which I genuinely felt like had been written for me and me alone. I know that sounds like I […]

This sounds like a really good book, I'm going to keep a look out for it in the shops! I would reccomend Pond by Claire Louise Bennet. Very quirky short stories about one woman who lives alone in a seaside town (possible Ireland?).

I was tempted by this novel before I read your post - now I know I need to buy it!
