For May we will be reading Problems by Jade Sharma.
“Behind every crazy woman is a man, sitting very quietly, saying, ‘What? I’m not doing anything.'” If this sentence doesn’t make you want to stand up and cheer, stop reading this blurb right now. If you prefer to read books with cuddly, likable heroines who always make good and healthy decisions, stay away from this novel. But if you enjoy complicated protagonists who don’t necessarily pass the “likability” test but do speak to the blackest part of your soul, Problems is for you. Jade Sharma’s debut is a darkly funny character study of an unhappy yet witty-as-hell woman whose self-destructive streak is as appalling as it is somehow understandable. Problems challenges readers to forget traditional redemption stories and yet to still find empathy for the messiest of heroines.
