My Goodreads TBR (66-70)
I’ve actually read a lot of negative reviews for this, but I’m still really intrigued by it. Sibling rivalry and untrustworthy narrators sound interesting to me. What can I say? Also, it’s not uncommon for me to love a book that everyone else hated. So… I’ll give it a shot.
I generally really enjoy memoirs because I think the realness of the story truly adds to the reading experience, but I fear that this one may be more than I can handle. After reading the reviews, it looks like it’s got some really tough content and while I’m sure it’s good, I don’t know if my brain is in the right mental space for something like this.
I tend to get a little nervous whenever a book with a female perspective about sexual assault is written by a male. However, I think it can be done, and according to other opinions I’ve seen, Hartzler managed it well here. Books like this one always break my heart but I value them endlessly.
If I’m being entirely honest with you, I only added this to my TBR because I needed something that started with a ‘P’ for my 2018 ABC Challenge. Clearly, I didn’t end up reading it for the challenge, but I do think I’m going to keep it on my TBR because the synopsis has made me very curious. I’m not sure I’ll like it… but I’m willing to find out.
Once again, I only added this novel to my TBR for the ABC Challenge. I was all but ready to go ahead and kick it to the curb but then I discovered that this has a ton of representation in it. I have been really wanting to read more diverse books (and if you have any recommendations, I’d love them!!) and I figured I might as well see how I feel about it.
