I Felt A Funeral, In My Brain by Will Walton Review

Hello my little favorite munchkins. How are you all doing? I am doing well. I am currently working on a bunch of homework. I was able to finish a project or two for school and a essay which is really great. I was able to get this ARC of this book at YallWest. Are any of you going to a new convention? Let me know so I can know more about them.

Alright, why don’t we get into this review already!

Description According to GoodReads, “How do you deal with a hole in your life?

Do you grieve?

Do you drink?

Do you make out with your best friend?

Do you turn to poets and pop songs?

Do you question everything?

Do you lash out?

Do you turn the lashing inward?

If you’re Avery, you do all of these things. And you write it all down in an attempt to understand what’s happened — and is happening — to you.

I Felt a Funeral, In My Brain is an astonishing novel about navigating death and navigating life, at a time when the only map you have is the one you can draw for yourself.”


  • This is an extremely emotional and heart gripping story.
    • Many people from what I have heard read it in one sitting but for me I had to take it in in gradual timing.
  • The writing of this book is beautiful and extremely raw.
    • I personally loved the way it was formatted and the quotes that were somewhat spread throughout the entire book.
  • The main character is dealing with so many things such as coming to grips that he is in love with his best friend, a death and his mothers alcoholism.
    • It was all brought up throughout the story in such a magnificent way in which it was spread out and it did not jump up at you all at once.
  • While this was a wonderful book I felt a hard time trying to relate to the character and trying to learn and grasp everything in this book.
