Book club!




First of all: Thank you Heather for your help! You are such a sweetheart and I was completely lost without you!! And your blog is more than lovely!

I want to share this awesome book with you:


Actually it is not just the one book, it is a series of books. The diaries of Adrian Mole written by Sue Townsend. The first book was published in 1982 when Adrian was 13 3/4 years old. 
The diaries follow Adrian Mole through his life, starting with the teenage years. We learn a lot about his dream of being a writer, his unconditional love to his sweetheart Pandora....and we also learn about his complete failure to achieve all these dreams. The latest book was published in 2009 and we can see that none of his dreams came true. His love-life is a complete mess, his family is completely dysfunctional and his attempts to be a writer are just ridiculous. 

You should definitely find out on your own. These books are hilarious. I have never laughed so much reading a book. I have read every single book of the series around 15 times (really) and they still make me laugh so hard. 

This is what amazon says about it:

Teen angst has never been such serious business--or this much fun! In his secret diary, British teen Adrian Mole excruciatingly details every morsel of his turbulent adolescence. Mixed in with daily reports about the zit sprouting on his chin are heartrending passages about his parents' chaotic marriage. Adrian sees all, and he has something to say about everything. Delightfully self-centered, Adrian is the sort of teen who could rule a much better world--if only his crazy relatives and classmates would get out of his way. The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole is a riot, and--although written more than 15 years ago--there is something deliciously timeless about Adrian's angst.

One of literature's most endearing figures. Mole is an excellent guide for all of us Observer Marvellous, touching and screamingly funny ... set to become as much a cult book as The Catcher in the Rye .


So if you need a good laugh and love satires: give these books a chance. You won't regret it!

  3. I'd never heard or seen this series of books. To be quite honest, I'm not a book worm, but I volunteer at a library so I get to see lots of titles.

    Thanks a lot for dropping by today! ;D

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! ;D
