JULY #BOOKADAYUK: Week 2 Recap

The Doubleday UK twitter campaign is in full swing. The team asks avid readers daily, book-related questions during the month of July. Then, readers will share their answers with others on Twitter. It’s tons of fun. I hope you will join in. Here are my tweets for Week 2 of July’s #bookadayuk:

Defening

 

Day 8: Fav Great War Novel: Deafening by Canadian writer Frances Itani (A deaf newlywed’s husband leaves to fight in WWI)

Day 9: Most irritating character in a novel: The narrator/journalist/author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. BLAH.

Day 10: Most memorable picnic: The tragic picnic scene in Enduring Love by Ian McEwan is etched im my mind forever.

 

 

 

Day 11: The book that [recently] made me cry: The Fault in Our Stars. Okay?

Day 12: Novel that best conjured a place for me: The Night Circus by @erinmorgenstern. Every tent of that travelling circus was enchanting.

Day 13: Best title for a novel: P.S. Your Cat Is Dead by James Kirkwood Jr.

Day 14: Fav novel set in France: Ensemble c’est tout by Anna Gavalda. The last novel I actually read in French.

    Absolutely! She excels at creating place – place that didn’t require me to wade through nine million completely unnecessary details. Those extra descriptions are like cobwebs to me – I have to swish them to the side.

    That said, I did think it was too bad her editor didn’t urge her to take out all those ‘discerns.’ He discerned. She discerned. He discerned again. Oh please.

      HA! That’s the kind of think that usually bothers me, but I didn’t pick up on it. If I ever read it again, I’ll hear your “Oh please” after each use of “discerned”. Tee hee!
