Hop, hop, hop !!!

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her. I'm going to have to think...I'm reading several books, it's hard to pick just one. I have to pick the mother in There is no Year by Blake Butler. I say, "the mother" because none of the characters in the book have names. Well, I'm not finished but I assume no one will have a name by the end. In the beginning, the mother seems very typical. She's caring for her family. But then she becomes very weird. She starts seeing an exact copy of herself and the rest of the family. She kills them, even burying one in the forest. So far, reading about the characters in the book is like trying to solve a big puzzle. I only have a few pieces of the puzzle, despite being 200+ pages in.

Here are some blogs I came across:


  1. What an interesting book. It's not often you come across characters with no names. Here's mine:

  4. All the characters in this book are rather unique. It's hard to tell what is going on. I'm off to check out some blogs!!
