Well, You Think I Should Have Done One of These By Now….
It was over a year ago when I first announced a new topic that would I feature on the blog called Jar Select. After I announced the new feature, not a single post of Jar Select happened. I finally recalled it when looking for new posts to do and better late than never, the first edition of Jar Select is here!
As a reminder, Jar Select is a feature when I reach into my TBR Jar and pull out a random book where the book becomes the topic of the discussion. I’ll discuss my thoughts about the book, why I wanted it read it and about anything that comes to mind while discussing it.
This weeks random book and topic of the discussion is:
When We Wake by Karen Healey
When I first pulled this out, I have to say I was a bit confused. I couldn’t even remember what this book. I didn’t even have the faintest clue on what I was looking at. Did I write something random down? It wasn’t random, but long forgotten.
Once I looked up the book on GoodReads, the memories came rushing back. I found the book at a thrift store and thought it was interesting. Since it was a bargain, I decided to buy it and eventually read whenever I could get to it. I can’t recall what made it interesting, but I have to assume it involves with 100 year difference that takes place within the story.
Sooner or later, the book sat on my TBR Pile for a while and after some cleaning, I put the book in the donation pile and it disappeared. Ever since then, it seemed that I have forgotten about it until this day. When I think about the book now and if I saw it today, I would have probably put it back on the shelf and moved on.
Have you heard about this book before? If you read it, did you enjoy it?
