Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
What was your last five star read?
You know those books that slowly make their way onto the reading scene and then they are absolutely everywhere?!
Remarkably Bright Creatures was recently this book…And when @Readwithjenna picked it as their May book club pick, the reading FOMO really hit me hard, and I knew I had to pick it up ASAP!
At first I wasn’t sure I would enjoy a book that had a giant Pacific octopus as one of the narrators, but I shouldn’t haven’t worried because Marcellus ended up being the star of the show! This is a feel good book that also is deeply rooted in the realities (and challenges) of life….which is my kind of read.
Its literary fiction that felt super readable and the characters are genuine and also completely unforgettable. This really was a remarkable book, and one I will hold in my reading memories forever.
In addition, it was absolutely amazing via audiobook, and I highly recommend it, as the narrators truly brought this story to life.
Have you read this one yet and/or is it on your TBR list?! I am discussing this book today over on @genthebookworm and I would love to have you share your thoughts!
