Is a feature post where booklovers can share the first line or two of the book we are reading…
When people ask me what I do—taxi drivers dental hygienists—I tell them I work in an office. In almost nine years, no one’s ever asked me what kind of office, or what sort of job I do there. I can’t decide whether it’s because I fit perfectly with their idea of what an office worker looks like, or whether people hear the phrase “work in an office” and automatically fill in the blanks themselves—lady doing photocopying, man tapping at a keyboard.
No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life, where weekends mostly consist of frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling IT guy from her office, whose big heart will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
This is from Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I haven’t started this book yet, I am still finishing up Scythe and The Night Olivia Fell(which are awesome) but I’m super excited to start it! I have a feeling I am going to love this one!💗
Thanks for stopping by friends! Have an amazing Friday!
