Hello all, and welcome to another Goodreads Monday! I have so many books on my TBR and this is the time and place to talk about them all!
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Lauren @ Lauren’s Page Turners and I cannot wait to bring you a book that is waiting to be read on my TBR list.
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where you pick a book that is on your TBR list and show it off. This week I am showing off Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen.
Published: 2nd March 2017
“Petula has avoided friendship and happiness ever since tragedy struck her family and took her beloved younger sister Maxine. Worse, Petula blames herself. If only she’d kept an eye on her sister, if only she’d sewn the button Maxine choked on better, if only…
Now her anxiety is getting out of control, she is forced to attend the world’s most hopeless art therapy class. But one day, in walks the Bionic Man: a charming, amazingly tall newcomer called Jacob, who is also an amputee. Petula’s ready to freeze him out, just like she did with her former best friend, but when she’s paired with Jacob for a class project, there’s no denying they have brilliant ideas together – ideas like remaking Wuthering Heights with cats.
But Petula and Jacob each have desperately painful secrets in their pasts – and when the truth comes out, there’s no way Petula is ready for it.”
I saw this book only a few weeks ago and was instantly drawn into both the name and the author of the book. Susin Nielsen wrote the novel We All Made of Molecules which I read and reviewed last year. I really enjoyed her previous novel and assumed I would like this novel. After I read into the synopsis I knew I would like this book. I currently have this book downloaded on my Kindle ready to read in the next couple of weeks. So I am extremely excited for that!
There you have it, this weeks Goodreads Monday. If you have read or plan on reading Optimists Die First let me know in the comments, I would love to hear your thoughts on the book below!
