Weird Book Wednesday

Who’s read (or attempted to read) a book and thought, ‘what the hell….this is weird, I don’t get it!?’


I just wanted to share the last book that totally threw me, and, in turn, I totally threw it too. Almost out the window because it WOUND ME UP!! I was so cross with it, I DELETED IT off my Goodreads and just pretended that we’d never met.

Well, what book is it then? Can I bring myself to even think about it? It still winds me up to this day!! (Probably because I wanted to love it, but, alas, it was not to be!)



Ok, here it is…….


 “Superbly inventive….a rare debut: genuinely exciting.” says The Guardian.

 “Stupidly annoying….why do I not even know how to read this properly: genuinely pissed me off.”

says Lisa *OwlBeSatReading*

I mean, seriously, I didn’t even know what way to hold this, let alone understand the bloody story. I envy those fans who devoured it and sung it’s praises. But I just thought it was gimmicky shit.

Hi! I’m Lisa the Book Owl. I spend so much of my spare time reading, so I decided to start a blog all about it. I mainly read Historical Fiction, Horror and Literary Fiction, particularly Domestic Noir style LitFic. This is my little blog where I share all things bookish 🦉

  1. Good luck with that! Lol! You’ll end up standing on your head trying to read all the footnotes, sub-footnotes, and other annoying bits! I wish I liked it, I wanted to so much! 😭😂😭😂


  2. Oh my god you’ve just made me howl with laughter!! I do actually have this at home but it’s size and the way it’s written, yes all those WEIRD bits 😂 is really intimidating me. Plus, it’s a bloody beast of a book right?!

    1. Don’t talk to me about it !!! 😂😂😂 I was cursing and laughing my head off when typing the post! Oh my days, I never want to see that book again! Although, I saw it in Waterstones and picked it up and flicked through it and felt shit! I didn’t own it you see, I borrowed it and my friend wanted it back as she was moving and I was JUST HAVE IT BACK, TAKE IT AWAY! So seeing it I was like THERE YOU ARE YOU BASTARD. MOCKING ME. Oh god, I’m sorry, rant over. Anyway, this is why I had to do the post. Me and that book have ISSUES! 😂Good luck if you start reading it. 👍🏻
