It’s bingo Saturday once again – that rolled around fast! The square I’ve filled for this entry is:
A Book with a Yellow Cover
Despite having a few books with yellow covers on my TBR, The Memories That Make Us by Vanessa Carnevale seemed an obvious choice on account of it’s intensity of yellow and the fact that I’ve actually read it, as opposed to the others which are languishing on my TBR, possibly forevermore.
The gorgeous yellow cover isn’t all this novel has going for it. I loved the story of Gracie Ashcroft and her memory loss. If you didn’t catch my review of The Memories That Make Us when it first appeared, you can check it out here.
Gracie knew nothing at all about herself, or her life, yet she knew things about flowers, instinctively, from the minute she opened her eyes upon waking from her coma. This was particularly fascinating to me and begs examination on just how deeply our memories can penetrate us. She was essentially a blank slate, but the residual knowledge she absorbed while growing up remained.
Memory has always fascinated me and while it’s a very deep topic to delve into, Vanessa did very well with The Memories That Make Us.
This year I’m playing book bingo with Mrs B’s Book Reviews. On the first and third Saturday of each month, we’ll post our latest entry. We’re not telling each other in advance what we’re currently reading or what square we’ll be filling next; any coincidences are exactly that – and just add to the fun!
Follow our card below if you’d like to join in, and please let us know if you do so we can check out what you’re reading.
Now I’m off to check out what square Mrs B has marked off for this round. See you over there!
