Read The Unpredictability of Being Human Online Free - Meet Malin, a fifteen-year-old who sees the world differently. Malin knows she couldn’t change much about her life, even if she got to play God. Her dad would still yell all the time – especially as Malin is still friends with Hanna, the girl she met shoplifting. Her mum would still say a glass of wine is good for her heart – and Mum needs it, with Malin’s brother, Sigve, getting into trouble all the time. And Malin would still be Malin. Because she can’t be anybody else.
In a voice bursting with immediacy and truth, Malin shares the absurdities of growing up and fitting in as her family struggles with the buried pain of mistakes made and secrets kept.
Profound, compassionate and as funny as it is dark, Malin’s story is an offbeat examination and celebration of the brutal, bizarre and beautiful unpredictability of being human.
If you love the freshness and honesty of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the emotional depth of John Green, and the irreverent wit of Little Miss Sunshine, push this to the top of your TBR pile.

My initial rating for this book was 3.5 stars but I have since decided to boost it 4, as days after finishing this I keep thinking about these characters.
Nanowrimo had been slowing my reading pace down and, as such, I had been craving a book I could tear through with ease, but that still maintain...

About a young teen and life's problems.
Set in the beautiful country of Norway the book sadly lacks any description and could have been set anywhere.
I liked that Malin accepts she messed up, that everyone can mess up and that all deserve a second chance.

First reviewed on Pretty Little Memoirs.
Malin, straight away, is quite an unusual main character. Her point of view and inner monologue on the world is striking, bordering on painfully honest. She sounds much older than her age, fifteen, throughout her POV. Malin's family are a huge part of her t...

The Unpredictability of Being Human by Linnie Ingmundsen was a heart warming read. Malin is a fourteen year old naive little lady, a round peg in a square hole, trying to fit in. Well, aren't we all? The plot was so relatable that it clicked with me at the very first chapter and I wonder how nove...

From the synopsis I thought this book would be really funny, but also tackle some difficult topics. However, I found that it was not funny at all and it didn't really go into detail when tackling the difficult subjects.
I found Malin to be really annoying. She seemed much younger than 14 and did s...
