So I just finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Loved it. Loved. Ashley already reviewed it for us here. In fact, she has expanded her review for publication in a newspaper. You done us proud, girl! Now we just need Laura's thoughts.
Aislin and other fans of The Picture of Dorian Grey or Oscar Wilde (but especially Dorian fans) should definitely read this one. Also my mom. Oh, and Hilary of course.
This book is happy. It is uplifting, that is to say. There are some unhappy parts of course, but a story needs conflict. It's uplifting and engrossing but not gripping. That means you WILL be able to put it down to make dinner, shower, etc., but also that you will be happy to have a minute to pick it up again. Also be sure to read the acknowledgments after. Or before. This book made me wish I had a real-for-reals pen pal.
Happy, happy! Yay! Loved.
