#BookBingo – Round 23

Book written by an Australian woman more than 10 years ago:

I Have a Bed Made of Buttermilk Pancakes by Jaclyn Moriarty

Lent to me by a friend at work, I Have a Bed Made of Buttermilk Pancakes was a novel I hadn’t even heard of. But I read Gravity is The Thing earlier this year and loved it and lending that led me to having this one lent to me. I love the book universe!

Truly original and so much fun with a fair bit of poignancy thrown into the mix. Jaclyn writes with an emphasis that jumps right off the page along with well-timed irony and plenty of humorous instances of stating the obvious – even if it is only with introspect. It is quintessentially Australian without any stereotypes and it dates very well – almost a classic in the making. At the heart of this novel is a mystery like no other and it amused me greatly once all the pieces of this charmingly puzzling book began to fall into place.

For 2019, I’m teaming up withMrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse for an even bigger, and more challenging book bingo. We’d love to have you join us. Every second Saturday throughout 2019, we’ll post our latest round. We invite you to join in at any stage, just pop the link to your bingo posts into the comments section of our bingo posts each fortnight so we can visit you. If you’re not a blogger, feel free to just write your book titles and thoughts on the books into the comments section each fortnight, and tag us on social media if you are playing along that way.

    • It’s a very whimsical sort of book too. Jaclyn Moriarty is more of a favourite of mine than her sister Liane. Just nudges over the line on quirk and whimsy. Thanks for the link to your next bingo square – will pop over and have a look at it now!

  1. Ooooh interesting! I saw a copy of this one on a bargain table the other day, and thought half-heartedly about picking it up, but ultimately didn’t… I’ll have to scurry back and check if it’s still there, you make it sound like a lot more fun than the blurb did!
