As you may know, my two friends and I run a book club together (you can check out our Goodreads group here) where we read one book a month, and then share our thoughts on it. We then chat about it on our blogs!
(You can view our most recent chat post about Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo here!)
We only recently opened the book club up to everyone, and would love to share others thoughts on the book of that month; just tell us what you think and we might feature you in our post!
Anyway, this month it was up to me to suggest a couple of books to read, and here’s what we chose:
When you’re a hypochondriac, there are a million different things that could be wrong with you, but for Izzy, focusing on what could be wrong might be keeping her from dealing with what’s really wrong.
I almost raised my hand, but what would I say? “Mr. Bayer, may I please be excused? I’m not totally positive, but I think I might have cancer.” No way. Then everyone at school would know, and they would treat me differently, and I would be known as “Izzy, that poor girl who diagnosed herself with breast cancer during biology.”
But Izzy’s sense of humor can only get her so far when suddenly her best friend appears to have undergone a personality transplant, her mother’s health takes a turn for the worse, and her beautiful maybe-boyfriend is going all hot and cold. Izzy thinks she’s preparing for the worst-case scenario, but when the worst-case scenario actually hits, it’s a different story altogether—and there’s no tidy list of symptoms to help her through the insanity.
I can’t wait to delve into this book; I’m super excited for March to come so I can jump right into it!
If any of you would like to join us, we’d love for you to! If you have a Goodreads account, you can just join our group on there. If you don’t, feel free to contact me through social media, and I’ll keep you up-to-date with what’s going on! (You can visit my contacts page here!)
