Book Description

Tuesday Morning has always believed that she was different. But different in high school doesn’t cut it. Different doesn’t make her prom queen and different doesn’t get the high school quarterback to notice her.
While researching for her senior thesis on Emily Dickinson, Tuesday comes across a poem that changes her life. Fed up with her past and living a life that she doesn’t find appealing, Tuesday erases her old diary entries and forms them into the past that she has always dreamed of. She’s popular, skinny and desired. Pen in hand, she recreates her past, changing her present and ultimately redirecting her future.
We all have secrets and skeletons in our closets, but Tuesday has managed to clean hers out with a pen and a diary.
Just how precious is our past? And how much has our past created what we are today?

4.0 out of 5 stars A KindleObsessed Review April 6, 2010
Format:Paperback
I didn't actually plan on writing this review until Friday, but as I rounded the last 2% percent of this artfully crafted novel, my need to immediately put my thoughts to paper was almost overwhelming.

I have never encountered a book that embodied my personality more than "Tuesday Tells it Slant." Lets just say, for all intents and purposes...that I am in fact Tuesday. (p.s. Tuesday is a name, not a weekday reference)

1. She is a book reviewer who has absolutely no problem telling someone that their book is a waste of space.

2. She should probably be writing books herself but lacks the inspiration to do so.

3. She refuses to throw away books because, in her mind, it should be considered a crime, and

4. She is willing to do almost anything to make the past disappear.

Growing up for Tuesday was...interesting. With a twin sister who enjoyed chucking the occasional milk cartoon at people, and a childhood friend that was secretly in love with her, life was bound to be full of surprises, but when interesting turns to unfathomable Tuesday loses focus. With her world suddenly turned upside down she decides that re-writing the past is a more acceptable answer than dealing with the future. How far would you go to slant your memories? Who would you unknowingly hurt in the process and would slanting your past skew your future?

Despite the underlying darkness of "Tuesday Tells it Slant" it was actually quite witty. "Holly Christine's" writing had eloquence to it I was not expecting, and the novel as a whole gave me a much deeper appreciation for Emily Dickinson (whom I had otherwise considered a general waste of my brain matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! March 20, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Author created a modern day fairytale. The glass slipper of tragedy brings home the prince charming. Yet, it is more thatn that; it is a story full of good and evil, lust and romance, love and hate, and truth and lies. It is a page turner, yet not Dan Brown annoying. Basiclly, her subtle hints force you to want to know more. Don't miss out on this enjoyable ride.

Tuesday Tells it Slant is mostly written in the form of diary entries that vary from past to present time.
Monday and Tuesday Morning are twins. Tuesday's mother gave her a journal when she was a little girl and told her to name it, so each entry begins with 'Dear Claudia'.
Tuesday's journal entries are about her life from grade school into her twenties. She works as a book reviewer and editor at a literary magazine called The End.
I liked the relationships within the book. Tuesday and her sister Monday are very close, and she you get to read about their lives growing up from middle school and into their twenties. Tuesday is in love with her childhood sweetheart and best friend Billy.
Something happens to Tuesday that changes her life forever, and she'd rather forget this event than live with it. She re-writes her diary the way she would have liked the events to have happened, and then she goes to see a hypnotist in order to erase certain memories.

One thing that was a bit confusing were the flashbacks and flashforwards in the book. She goes back and forth from 1990 thru 2009. You are reading her diary entries throughout her life, but not in order. Some of the flashbacks were from present time, to the very recent past, then to present time again, only to go back way into the past once more.
I really liked is that each chapter beings with an Emily Dickinson poem, since Tuesday discovered the poet while writing a paper for school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! August 27, 2010
Format:Paperback
Tuesday Tells it Slant by Holly Christine hits the top of my list for favorite books! I was a bit hesitant to get excited about reading this, the synopsis didn't fully catch my attention and actually confused me a bit. But once I started and got past the first few jumbled pages, I couldn't put it down. The story follows the journal entries of Tuesday Morning and the defining moments in her life, from her relationship with her twin sister, Monday, to securing her first real job, to falling in love. But when Tuesday's life starts slipping out of control, she decides to do something about it. Re-writing her past seems to be the only way she can control her future, so she revisits her journal, methodically changing what has already happened into a new story, redirecting her into a new future. But how precious is the past, and did Tuesday make a mistake rewriting hers?

I know that my synopsis of the story probably sounds just as confusing, but I really think everyone should try this book out. The concept is so intriguing, someone wanting to rewrite their past all with a paper and pen. While I was reading, I found myself wondering what I would change if I had the power to, or if I would leave all my memories intact. I found Christine's writing to be thought-provoking and eloquent, even while discussing some of the harsh realities people must face. The beginning may throw some readers off like it did myself. The journal entries skip around from events among the years, but once you get just a few pages in, you can start to see a pattern amongst the dates. I highly enjoyed this novel; I found it to be a refreshing break from the usual chick lit or women's fiction pattern. Tuesday Tells is Slant gets five stars from me.

I was probably more than halfway through this book before I could make sense of it. Jumping back and forth in time, I was very confused.
