The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: the unreliable narrator. Who is your favorite literary liar, the best subjective storyteller, the yarn-spinner whose intent is to elevate or obfuscate?

Because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone. The OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread. Pictures of books related to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
8/19: epistolary
8/26: literary Achilles heel (h/t Pastyjournalist)
9/2: what disrupts your normal reading routine (h/t Amateur Tennis Pro)
9/9: justify your love (h/t to Jason P)
9/16: badges of honor
9/23: banned book week starts September 27
9/30: treat yourself
