2013: The Year In Books We Couldn’t Put Down
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Marie Semple
Jessica: Bernadette is the only novel in the world I can say I read from start to finish in one sitting. It's THAT good. It's a hilarious story about an ex-architect/current disgruntled suburban mom named Bernadette and, well, basically how she runs away from home.
Ami: This book, told through letters, journal entries and emails, from the point of view of a 15-year-old, reads like fun, quirky, compelling movie. The characters are just as original as the story line. It's like a literary breath of fresh air. [Amazon]
