Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman

Spoiler alert: She is actually doing quite terribly!

I loved this debut novel by Gail Honeyman. Eleanor has a decidedly dreadful mother. She is abusive on many levels. Eleanor manages to survive childhood and becomes an office worker. She has little to no social interaction, she is hyper-focused on grammar and doing things properly, she is a closet alcoholic, and she is hilarious without meaning to be. She also may possess the greatest vocabulary of all time.

In short? I loved her.

I loved her strangeness, her intelligence, her unique view of the world, and the fact that she survived at all.

This was a great way to kick off my Spring Time reading. What is on your must-read list this season?
