Bout of Books 10 Challenge: This Made Me Think of That

This challenge is being hosted by My Overstuffed Shelves. Think about the book you are reading now, or one you’ve read before, and tell me something you think goes with it and why.


I’m almost finished reading Get Up Tim, a collection of short stories by Sally Weigel. The magical realism in the story “Growth Spurts” reminded me of Aimee Bender’s The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake… trees, wood, furniture. Without giving anything away, I think there is an interesting parallel between Maria in “Get Up Tim” and Joseph at the end of Lemon Cake.
