This was sitting on my local library’s new releases shelf the day I went to return War and Peace. Judging completely by its cover, I thought it was exactly what I needed: something light and fun and girly and to top it all off bookish!
Well, I was not disappointed. In fact I really liked this book, and I could tell I would from the very first few pages. The plot is not particularly original, three very different sisters find themselves returning to their parents house in the sleepy town they grew up in… What makes this book different is that this family is very literary, books and libraries and Shakespeare play a significant role in their life. I loved that they didn’t even own a TV and that half of the time they used quotes from Shakespeare’s plays when talking to one another. Even the title is a Shakespeare reference.
So, all in all, I really enjoyed reading The Weird Sisters. I think it was the ideal book to follow a big, heavy classic and I greatly enjoyed the bookishness of its characters.
