I applied for (and got) this small job to write a reading guide for a senior bookclub and this is the book that was assigned to me! I have not read it yet, but I have heard lovely things about it! Have you read it? Or are you planning to read it? Should I be as excited as I am? 😄

ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE by Gail Honeyman 🔸 This was my December @bookofthemonth pick and I’m so glad I finally read it this week! Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is an emotional journey that is both sad and hopeful. I loved Gail Honeyman’s writing and the way she peeled back the many layers of Eleanor. This is such a strong character-driven novel that you will feel like you understand and know Eleanor. She’s socially awkward and quirky, but her heart’s in the right place. Perhaps after reading this book, you will find yourself more open to reaching out to someone, or look at something in your everyday life in a brighter light. . Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is Gail Honeyman’s debut novel, a work of contemporary fiction set in Glasgow. And, Reese Witherspoon has optioned the movie! . . . . . #eleanoroliphant #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #igreads #igbooks #boo#bookish #bookphotography #addictedtobooks  #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #lovetoread #instareads #booknerd #booklove

Book 10 of 2018. This. Book. I’m so annoyed that I waited this long to read it! I absolutely loved it. What a phenomenal set of characters. I caught myself looking at the percentage of the book left and getting upset that it was almost over! I will be recommending it to everyone I know. Please someone tell me what to read next! #ele#eleanoroliphantmpletelyfine #eleanoroliphant #gailhoneyman #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #sosaditsover #everyoneshouldreadthis #goingtobuyitinpaperbacksoicanlendittopeople

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine really took me by surprise: I don’t know what I was expecting, really, but this beautiful novel was incredibly touching. It’s the story of a woman who is totally isolated from human connection, living in her own lonely bubble. The novel’s events gradually push her into confronting reality in a way which is moving, unpredictable and often hilarious. Check out Gail Honeyman’s debut novel ASAP!

"Cuando empecé a trabajar con Bob, había una mujer mayor en el trabajo a la que le quedaban dos meses para jubilarse. Faltaba a menudo porque estaba cuidando de su hermana, que tenía cancer de ovarios. Esta compañera mayor nunca mencionaba el cáncer, no utilizaba siquiera la palabra y se refería a la enfermedad en los términos de lo más tangenciales (...). Hoy en día la soledad es el nuevo cáncer: algo vergonzoso, bochornoso, que tu misma te infringes si bien de un modo poco claro. Algo temible e incurable, tan espantoso que no te atreves a mencionar; la gente no quiere oír la palabra en voz alta, por miedo a verse también infectada, o de tentar a la suerte y que caiga sobre ellos un horror similar." #findellibro #eleanoroliphant #gailhoneyman #instabook #bookstagram

Book number 8 of my 50 book goal for 2018. . I highly recommend this book! I wanted to quit it a few times in the beginning, but boy am I glad I stuck with it. . The character Eleanor was odd, off putting, and a little disturbing. BUT, by the end of the book I liked and cared for her. An understandable journey, considering the character arc. . . . . #stephreadsbooks #eleanoroliphant #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #gailhoneyman

I loved Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman! Such a great story 💕. . . Tässäpä kaikin puolin mainio kirja! Gail Honeymanin Eleanorille kuuluu ihan hyvää oli hauska, sympaattinen, koskettava, koukuttava, kerrassaan suositeltava kertomus kolmekymppisestä Eleanorista, jonka elämä ei ole sujunut ihan keveintä reittiä pitkin. Mahtaakohan tästä olla elokuva jo tekeillä..? Olen iloinen, että luin tämän 😊! . .

They say "You are what you eat." I beg to disagree. You are what you READ. Lately, misfits and oddballs are my predominant themes. And before I resort to word vomit or commit yet another social faux pas, I'll make my insight short: Maybe, just maybe, we are all odd in our own way. You can either lament the fact that not everyone shares the same idiosyncrasies, or you can celebrate your "you-niqueness". Being singular doesn't have to be lonely. #insights #whatimreading #gailhoneyman #ele#eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #eleanoroliphant

I finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine this afternoon (after giving my house a good scrub). It’s taken me quite a while to finish this one for a couple of reasons. • I loved how likeable Eleanor was and I’m always an advocate for having mental health part of literature and everyday conversation so I’m really happy this book exists. I think Gail Honeyman describes Eleanor’s depressive episodes particularly well. • On this topic though, I do wish more books had likeable characters with mental health conditions that don’t engage in some form of unnerving behaviour. My heart sank a little when Eleanor began the ‘stalking’ type behaviour because I felt like it was feeding into some of the generalisations around mental health that I hear so often in my work. I could honestly write an essay on this so I’ll reign it in for this post! Focusing on this book for now - it is written beautifully and really endears the reader to Eleanor so for that alone it’s well worth a read. • • • • #boo#bookstagram/a> #bookstagram #rea#reading #bibliophile #literature #boo#booklove> #bookcollection #newblogger #reading #igbooks #ilovebooks #instabook #library #mybooks #booklove #bookworm #booknerd #bookphoto #bookreview #bookishfeatures #bookfeaturepage #bookstagramfeature #eleanoroliphant #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #mentalhealth #gailhoneyman #literary #mybooklife #ukblogger #bookblogger

Super busy month so this one took me awhile. But I loved it, this character is super unique and her journey was funny and heartbreaking. It makes you think about the people you overlook because youre too busy thinking about the ones who could care less. Two thumbs up. #bookofthemonth #eleanoroliphant #booklover 📚

When I started this book, I thought it was terribly boring. I had waited months for it to be available from the library, and it wasn’t living up to my expectations. About one-third of the way through, while still undecided as to whether I would finish it, I realized I was starting to like it. By the end I was laughing and cheering for a character I’d found annoying just a few days before (and if you’re a person who cries over things like books, you’ll probably be crying). I think that’s how this book is meant to go. Eleanor Oliphant grows on you. #librarylove #bostonpubliclibrary #amreading #eleanoroliphant

This is a beautiful read. Complex, delicate, taboo and devastatingly realistic. It also contains in its pre-amble a depiction of loneliness from Olivia Laing's "The Lonely City", which is the first time I have seen the feelings of my late teens and early twenties put into words: "...loneliness is hallmarked by an intense desire to bring the experience to a close; something which cannot be achieved by sheer willpower or by simply getting out more, but only by developing intimate connections. This is far easier said than done, especially for people whose loneliness arises from a state of loss or exile or prejudice, who have reason to fear or mistrust as well as long for the society of others." #book #gailhoneyman #eleanoroliphant #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #novel #fiction #literature #reading #story #readthisbook #weekend #weekendreading

4⭐ για την #EleanorOliphant, που είναι μια χαρά. Κάθε πρωί πηγαίνει στη δουλειά, κάθε Τετάρτη βράδυ μιλάει με τη μαμά στο τηλέφωνο και κάθε Σαββατοκύριακο πίνει δυο μπουκάλια βότκα μόνη στο σπίτι. Η τάξη αυτή διαταράσσεται όταν η μοναχική και κοινωνικά αδέξια 29χρονη αποφασίζει ότι ήρθε η ώρα να βρει γαμπρό. Άλλοτε ξεκαρδιστικό και άλλοτε σπαρακτικό, με μια πρωταγωνίστρια-αφηγήτρια που δύσκολα ξεχνιέται. #gailhoneyman #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #bookstagram #instabook #instavivlio #instaebook #diavazo

‘I took one of my hands in the other, tried to imagine what it would feel like if it was another person’s hand holding mine. There have been times where I felt that I might die of loneliness.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine - except not at all really. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This was a wonderful book that surprised me. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by it, but I was, and I started recommending it to friends as soon as I read the last page! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The characterisation of Eleanor was brilliant. She is different, quirky, and extremely socially awkward...at first, the second-hand embarrassment was so strong and I felt like I was cringing on every page, but there was also something endearing about Eleanor and I wanted to know more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first-person narration was done so well, and to me, was a key strength of this book. Eleanor’s narration was addictive, whether she was reacting to people in a society she couldn’t seem to understand, or reflecting on herself. Her narration was a combination of humour and heartbreak. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The theme of loneliness was heartbreaking at times - Eleanor at her weakest was devastating to read but was surely the novel’s strong point. The exploration of friendship and kindness was heartwarming and made me hope for a kinder world 💗💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Has anyone else read this? Thoughts? I’ve heard that ‘A Man Called Ove’ is kind of similar...is that true? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ele#eleanoroliphantmpletelyfine #eleanoroliphant #gailhoneyman #novel #glasgow #scottland #goodreads #fiction #bookstagram #chanelslibrary #bookclub #bibliophile #reading #instabook #tea

"Havia na parede na entrada da enfermaria um recepiente de gel para as mãos e uma grande placa amarela acima dele: não beba. Será que as pessoas realmente bebiam álcool em gel? Imagino que deviam fazer isso, daí a placa. Parte de mim, uma bem pequena, considerou brevemente abaixar a cabeça para provar uma gota, só porque tinham me mandado não fazer isso. Não, Eleanor, disse a mim mesma. Controle suas tendências rebeldes. Atenha-se ao chá, ao café e à vodka." . . #literatura #literaturaescocesa #livros #leitura #bookaholic #eleanoroliphant

🌟 First pic of the new theme! (≧∇≦)/ I LOVE a clear, shiny kind of theme, so I wanted to try and use it for my bookstagram ✨ personally, I really like the final result of this pic 😍 what about you, guys? Do you like this change or preferred the previous theme?💕 · · · · 📝 Also, a couple of days ago in my stories I asked y'all if you'd like a spoiler-free review of what I read, so here's the first one! 🌻 · · · 👚Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine👚 The first half of EO was... boring. And slightly irritating. I didn't like Eleanor's behaviour and thoughts toward others, and there were waaaayy too many descriptions, imho. I honestly wanted to drop it, but I also wanted to know more about Eleonor's past. And then, the second half of the book. I really, REALLY liked the second half of the book. It showed the real Eleanor Oliphant: her true feelings, her true state of mind, why she was like that at the beginning, and it was so intense and felt so real I had to stop a couple of times to put myself together. We could say it was harsh, and still gorgeous. In the end, I really liked the book. It was worth the wait, and if you'll ever want to start it, remember to be patient & keep reading: it gets better. In every way possible. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - 3.7/5 · · · . . Yep, that's it for now! Be patient with me too, I'll catch up the tags too, sooner or later 😅🙈💗 · · Wish you all a great day!

Saturday, yay! 🤗 • • So, I finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine last night and it was incredible. I loved this book so much and it’s definitely going to be on my reread pile. It was so brilliant. If I had to recommend one book so far this year, this is it! 💙 • • These are some of my favourite quotes from the book, there’s so many but these ones are worth sharing... one of them made me LOL. 😅 • • “Some people, weak people, fear solitude. What they fail to understand is that there’s something very liberating about it; once you realize that you don’t need anyone, you can take care of yourself.” 👏🏽 • • “I mean, imagine having to micturate in a row, alongside other men, strangers, acquaintances, friends even? It must be dreadful. Just think how odd it would be if we had to display our genitals to one another when we finally reached the front of this queue!” - (Eleanor, this part cracked me up!) 😂 • • “These days, loneliness is the new cancer—a shameful, embarrassing thing, brought upon yourself in some obscure way. A fearful, incurable thing, so horrifying that you dare not mention it...” 👀 • • Let me know if you’ve read this because I really want to know what other people think about Eleanor; I think she’s amazing. 😍 • • I’ve opened up my Leigh Bardugo box sets and oh my God... they are the most beautiful books. The SoC/ CK duology is probably now my favourite box set. So pretty!! ... warning: these books will be making a lot of appearances on my account. 😉🤩 • • Happy Saturday. 🎉
