Recommended Reading 101: Unreliable Narrators

Posted January 21, 2017 by Bonnie in Recommended Reading 101 / 3 Comments

Taking classes and getting excited for the assigned reading was always my favorite part of school. Using that same concept and turning different genres, locations, and subjects into a course of their own, you could come up with your own assigned reading. These would be my picks for recommended reading, what would yours be?

Unreliable Narrators 101

Early Review – The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren SumaIf you’re looking for a haunting story (both literal and figurative)…

Nova Ren Suma is known for her incredible stories but this one takes the cake. The Walls Around Us delves into juvenile delinquency and the discrepancies in the criminal justice system as well as the harsh reality of discrimination, and the blurred lines between fantasy and reality.

Book Review – The Collector by John FowlesIf you’re looking for something especially disturbing…

The Collector is the story of Frederick Clegg, a man that collects butterflies but begins to desire collecting other beautiful things. Like a girl named Miranda. The story splits points of view between the two characters. It’s an unnerving yet unforgettable read.

Short & Sweet Review – The Secret History by Donna TarttIf you’re looking for the classic boarding school novel…

 The Secret History is one of the most enthralling stories I’ve ever read. Beautifully written and immensely captivating. The end is revealed at the very beginning of the book but it doesn’t detract from the shocking way it unfolds.
