30 days of books for christmas - where'd you go bernadette?

Maria Semple's debut novel showcases the effects of juggling too many balls at one time. When Bernadette disappears, her daughter Bee is left to piece everything together, discovering the truth behind her mother's complicated life along the way. Witty and insightful, Semple's novel is highly original and a delicious treat for literary lovers.  This novel was recommended on Alicia Paulson's blog and had been recommended to her by her own readers - so thank you to all of them for pointing me in the right direction!

  1. 'Where'd you Go, Bernadette?' was one of my favourite reads in the past year. Only topped by 'The Universe versus Alex Woods' by Gavin Extence. Enjoying your daily posts.

    1. Thank you for following the series! I haven't heard of Gavin Extence's book, so I will follow it up now - always enjoy a recommendation!
