    "I planned my death carefully. . ." Who would not be

    "I planned my death carefully. . ."

    Who would not be hooked on those first 5 words of the novel Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood? Especially with the knowledge I have about a recent read (which I won't say because it will give away part of the book, but those of you who have also read it recently know what I'm talking about!!!!).

    Joan is a gothic romance author who has hidden her entire life from her true being. She was a very overweight child who never was happy and hid her true feelings from her friends. Joan hid her old self from her husband Arthur, as well as hiding the fact that she wrote these gothic romance novels.

    Joan has faked her death, and as you read Lady Oracle (named after a poem she wrote), you find out more about Joan's true self, and all of the lies she has told.

    I read Lady Oracle for my own altered version of Project Atwood, for my November read. Atwood did not disappoint. Once again, she wrote a fabulous novel, one I loved reading from start to finish.

    If you haven't read any Margaret Atwood novels, then I suggest starting with The Handmaid's Tale, which I recently realized is my favorite book.

    What is your favorite Margaret Atwood novel?

    Thanks for reading,

    Rebecca @ Love at First Book

    Unexpected

    Lady Oracle is not what I expected when I first read it, but it turned out to be really great. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it, and I've recommended it to all my friends. The twists and turns in this story and the story within is what kept me going. It's sad about the fat lady though.
