Cramming…

Amusingly, I feel a little like I’m cramming for an exam today. You see, I’ve signed up for my second ever read-a-long and I’m scurrying to get the first third of the book, The Unfinished Journals of Elizabeth D (Allen and Unwin) finished in time to chat about it tonight.

The read-a-long is once again being hosted by the lovely Bree of All The Books I Can Read and you can find out more about how we’re reading the novel here.

The book itself, written by Nichole Bernier is intriguing from the outset, and very sad…

Before there were blogs, there were journals. And in them we’d write as we really were, not as we wanted to appear. But there comes a day when journals outlive us. And with them, our secrets.

Summer vacation with her family was supposed to be a restorative time for Kate, who’d lost her close friend Elizabeth in a plan crash. But when she inherits a trunk of Elizabeth’s journals, they reveal a woman far different than the cheerful wife and mother thought she knew.

I can’t wait to hear what other people are thinking about it. I for one am finding it pretty gut-wrenching, but also incredibly compelling. It’s made me sad but curious…

I’ll let you know as we hit each chat-point, and feel free to join us (just watch out for spoilers if you’ve not read the book.) Our first conversation is happening here.

Hopefully they wont be too cross with me for running a little late…
