15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 13


My friend, Jackie, from Bookworm Cafe posted her responses to this challenge during July, so it put it on my own radar. I decided to take it up for the month of August. The challenge originated, it appears, with Good Books & Good Wine, so credit for the prompts goes to them! 

TODAY’S PROMPT: DESCRIBE ONE UNDERAPPRECIATED BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD READ

Most people know Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist” but that seems to be where they leave off. They don’t seem to know any of his other works. I admit that I don’t know a lot of them, even though I own a chunk of his works. My favorite book by him is NOT “The Alchemist” but another one titled “Veronika Decides to Die.” This book is about Veronika literally deciding to die and what happens after that decision. The book is weird at times, but the message of this book is on point. It deserve a lot more love than what it gets. It is one of those books I wish I could push on more people. There is even a moment where Paulo Coelho appears in the story. Yes, the author inserts themselves into the story as a character! I can’t say enough good things about it. I would say more, but almost anything would spoil this book. 

WHAT IS ONE BOOK YOU THINK IS UNDERAPPRECIATED? Let me know which in the comments!

    If you’re into tearjerkers, I’d recommend Phantom by Susan Kay. It’s back in print after a lot of years of being unavailable. Easily the very best novel ever written about the Phantom of the Opera, including the original.

      Personally, I find most “tearjerks” just don’t illicit that emotion in me. I do, however, like “The Phantom of the Opera” and definitely will look into this book. Thanks for mentioning it Emily!
