How I Found It: Book of the Month

Wow…. this one is intense. Quick trigger warning, this book talks about polygamy and domestic violence, so if those are triggers for you, please read at your own discretion.

Okay, so homegirl is in a plural marriage with a dude named Seth. Essentially that means that she is the wife he visits on Thursday and that he has a wife for Monday and Tuesday. As she has this extremely secual relationship with Seth (don’t read this one grandma), she starts to learn things about the other wives. Soon, she gets in too deep, and her relationship with Seth begins to deteriorate. But then, shiz hits the fan, and we find out that homegirl’s name is Thursday, and maybe she’s crazy. But then, maybe she’s not? It gets really crazy really fast, so ya’ll need to buckle up and pick this book out!

There is a lot of buildup for the drop that occurs about halfway through the book. I don’t think that it is too much, but if you can get yourself over the hump, you won’t regret it. Along that line, there are 0 characters that I actually liked in this book, which I think was the point. So if you can completely ignore that we are meant to hate literally everyone (except maybe Hannah), then this book would be great for you! I personally would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars, which seems consistent with other readers on Goodreads.
