Summary from GoodReads:

A fresh, fun, totally addictive debut–by turns hilarious and tragic–by a gifted new writer, Losing Clementine follows a famous artist as she attempts to get her messy affairs in order en route to her eventual planned suicide a month later. First time author Ashley Ream takes a usually macabre subject and makes it accessible, relatable, and funny, and, in Clementine, has created one of the most endearing and unforgettable characters in recent fiction.

My Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It seems like such a morbid subject – I mean, Clementine is an artist who starts the book out with the planning of her own suicide. We meet her after she’s already completely given up – yet the sense of humor infused into the voice of the character is engaging, and even addicting.

I’ve not always been a big fan of women’s fiction. Sometimes it seems as if it’s seeking to pull tears out of nothing, stabbing here and there with a tender subject, hoping to provoke a reaction in the reader. Clementine succeeded in getting a rise out of me – for different emotions, and that is what really makes this book one that was enjoyable.

  1. It’s incredibly exciting to see CLEMENTINE making her way in the world. For so long, she lived only in my head and on the pages no one but me saw. Now that the book has made its way onto shelves and into the hands of readers (and reviewers), it is a more complete work, one that incorporates and supports the feelings and experiences of many, many people. Thank you so much for reading and sharing!

  2. Glad you enjoyed this one! Thanks for being on the tour.
