I've decided to start a Friday book review. I love to read so I feel it makes sense to share books with you that I have loved, or at least liked. I'm not going to share books that I didn't care for because I'm not an actual book critic, and it would be a waste of my time. Plus there are very few books that I flat out don't like. I had a really hard time getting through Shania Twain's biography. I wanted to like it, but don't waste your time.
Anyways, the first book I want to share is Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks. When I started the book I had forgotten what the blurb on the inside of the book jacket had said the book was about. I thought it was a man's memoir about the imaginary friend he used to have. (I know, I know. The book jacket says "a novel", but in my defense I take off the jackets when I'm reading a book so I didn't see that.) The book is actually from the point of view of Budo, the imaginary friend of a boy named Max. Budo and Max have such a sweet relationship, and when Max goes missing it is up to Budo to find him and help him return home. I had a hard time putting this book down - the story flows so easily, and Matthew Dicks does a wonderful job of keeping you feeling like you need to know what is going to happen next. If you're needing an easy beach read, or simply want a book you can finish in a weekend, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend is the book for you.
