The Black Butterfly

The Styling Librarian

Really enjoyed this novel. What happens when you have no control in your life? When youíre motherís passion brings you from one home to another throughout the years? Would you be able to make friends and connect with people? Penny grew up feeling disconnected and frustrated with her life situation. When Pennyís momís obsession sends her on a mission on the other side of the U.S., Penny is sent to an inn run by her momís old friend for the Christmas holiday. This inn is packed with mystery, ghosts, and some romance. Quite an interesting adventure to read with lovely character development. What would push you over the emotional edge? I sat wondering how much I could handle when it came to threats on my life, sanity?
There were a few special moments I wanted to note:
First line of the book: ďOne thing you might as well know about me: Iím a collectorÖ. I collect something thatís legal and takes up a lot less space: quotes.Ē I adored how powerful quotes were naturally mingled throughout The Black Butterfly. Reminded me of how John Green sprinkled famous last lines quotes into his wonderful book Looking for Alaska. Iíve also enjoyed famous quotes in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. I also appreciated how important writing and reading is to Penny throughout the book, lovely to see how she is able to sit down and get lost in books. One warning I have: do not read this book when youíre hungry. There are numerous delicious treats and cooking scenes throughout the book that make your mouth water!
