Book Club: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – Live Book Club Chat + Review

Hi guys! I am so incredibly sorry for my embarrassing delay in writing this post, and for not having been able to update my blog in general. June and July have been two crazily hectic months for me…but as the ballet season is over, and I am finally on holiday, I will be able to be more active here, I promise.

I hope you all had a blast reading our June’s Book Club pick Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I know I did, and it was a lovely light read to accompany me in these two last months of the season. It is the story of a growing friendship, and it has ‘popped’ in my life at the perfect moment, as I’ve also been busy working at strengthening and rekindling some friendships too… 

Eleanor Oliphant is a socially awkward 30yr old introverted woman, with a hard shell and a haunting past. Her poor and clumsy human interactions warm us up to her, as the skeletons she keeps in her closet slowly start to unravel before our eyes. The fil rouge of the plot is Eleanor’s self discovery through her gawky interactions with her good hearted colleague, and soon to become friend, IT-guy Raymond.

It is the story of a victim become survivor, of a woman finding the courage to face her past. It is a book that explores both unrequited feelings and unconditional love through friendship. I have definitely enjoyed reading this book, as it has brought up in me a plethora of questions, feelings and emotions. It is a perfect pick if you are looking for an easy read to warm up your heart and at the same time give you a good laugh, and who knows…maybe a little cathartic tear too.

I will be talking more about it in my Instagram Live Book Club Chat, today at 4:30 pm (GMT+1). All you have to do, if you want to participate, is to follow me on Instagram and join the chat on time.

If you have any questions for me, please leave them in the comments down below, and I will do my best to answer them Live.

How did you find this read? What are your thought? I can’t wait to hear from you, so please let me know!

I wish you all a wonderful day, and hopefully I’ll see some of you Live on Instagram later today!

Take care and have fun you guys!


Elly, XO
