Hello, lovely readers and Happy Thursday! Today’s Thirsty Thursday post is about a book that I am super excited to read. Thirsty Thursday is a part of my Daily Post; to learn more about it, click here!
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette’s intensifying allergy to Seattle—and people in general—has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.
To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence—creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world.-Goodreads summary
I saw RinceyReads on YouTube do a book review of Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, and I immediately knew that I had to read this book.
While the book deals with a serious issue of 15 year-old Bee trying to find her missing mother, Bernadette, the novel also seems to reflect a comedic and sarcastic tone and, at the same time, impart valuable messages to its readers. That sounds all too good to be true. However, I found that many people have also enjoyed this book. A follower on my Tumblr book blog informed me that it was “worth all the hype.” Additionally, people on Goodreads claim that this book is a fantastic, lighthearted, and humorous read that will surely leave a multitude of impressions on its reader. Likewise, I also like how this book’s ratings aren’t too high as I always seem to be underwhelmed by extremely hyped books.
Overall, I anticipate reading this book! If you have read this book, let me know what you thought of it!
