Review Monday: How to be A Normal Person by TJ Klune


Source: Goodreads

I’ve always been a person that those who know me will consider as being not totally normal. Which is good. I’m okay with not being like everyone else. I smile when people say jokingly, “You know you’re not normal right?”

That’s how much I love that term.

So it is to be expected that when I stumbled onto a book with the title How to be a Normal Person I was intrigued.

Then I read this synopsis:

Gustavo Tiberius is not normal. He knows this. Everyone in his small town of Abby, Oregon, knows this. He reads encyclopedias every night before bed. He has a pet ferret called Harry S. Truman. He owns a video rental store that no one goes to. His closest friends are a lady named Lottie with drag queen hair and a trio of elderly Vespa riders known as the We Three Queens.

Gus is not normal. And he’s fine with that. All he wants is to be left alone.

Until Casey, an asexual stoner hipster and the newest employee at Lottie’s Lattes, enters his life. For some reason, Casey thinks Gus is the greatest thing ever. And maybe Gus is starting to think the same thing about Casey, even if Casey is obsessive about Instagramming his food.

But Gus isn’t normal and Casey deserves someone who can be. Suddenly wanting to be that someone, Gus steps out of his comfort zone and plans to become the most normal person ever.

After all, what could possibly go wrong?

Life Interrupted. Thanks for reaching out Damaria

Okay. I’ve been a very naughty girl. Lol. Forgive me though. Life gave me a kick in the nuts and then proceeded to pummel me into the floor. But it was only to give me an idea of what it is I actually wanted from said life and how off-course I am at the moment.

Trying to put things into play to make sure that I’m on the right path now and I’m happy to be back. Somewhat back I mean. Don’t have anything for today. Not that I haven’t heard any album/song I wanted to review (I have) or a new audiobook/drama I wanted to share (there are a ton). Rather, it’s just been a long day and I’m not in the mood to do an extensive review at the moment.

I intend to take the weekend to regroup and then would be back, hopefully by Monday, posting my Monday review.

For those who are wondering, I finished Otaare. Or rather, I semi-finished it. Will still go back and re-write parts of it, but I have the bare bones of the story down.

Started another story, this one suited to the friends to lovers call and so far, the story’s flowing and I’m having fun with it. Will share a snippet of it some time soon.

A huge thank you 😀 to Damaria for reaching out to me. You’re right. Your mail made me feel so much better and was part of the reason why I came back to the blog. Thank you for making my day yesterday. And I’m really sorry that I’m just replying.

Until Monday… Here’s hoping we all have an amazing weekend.
