After 3 years, we are finally getting a new Sally Rooney novel! I really hope it will reach the heights of Normal People. It‘s coming out September 24.

LeeRHarry Myself and Sally Rooney have parted ways after Conversations (even though I loved NP), but I wish her well with her new release 😆 (edited) 17h
batsy I didn't quite like Beautiful People because of how if ended, but I loved Normal People. Need to read Conversations and looking forward to the new one! 1h

A story about unexpected friendship, romance, and Texas-size girl power. Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a little girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream of being a newscaster—and to kiss the boy she's crushing on.

Eliza Raine, the orphaned daughter of a white East India Company surgeon and his Indian common law wife, carefully follows the rules at her boarding school until Anne Lister arrives and changes her life forever. Alternating between her 14 year old POV and letters from the adult Eliza, this is a heartbreaking and poignant depiction of first love in a world of restrictions. Definitely read the afterword for the true story behind the novel.

3rd book finished for #FabulousFebruary #20in4

I can see why this book has good reviews. Overall an enjoyable book, covering the relationship between 2 people over a period of time. Both are normal people with issues of own to deal with along with the relationship. You end up caring for both of them, but also question some of their actions, even become frustrated by them. I‘d like a follow-up book 5 years on to find out what happens to them.

Andrew65 @DieAReader Thanks 🥰 5d
Reggie Do you think he takes off to NYC without her? 4d
Andrew65 @Reggie I‘d got the impression he‘d already made the decision to go, as otherwise why not tell her about it before. I think he‘d regret the decision to go. What did you think? 3d
Reggie Yeah, it breaks my heart but I think she lets him go and everything she dreamed of for him comes to pass. 3d
Andrew65 @Reggie Yes😢 This is why I need another book to know what‘s going on in their lives in five years time. 2d

This was gorgeously written but very sad, made all the more so when you realize Eliza Raine's story is true. Set in the early 1800s, it follows Eliza, an Anglo-Indian orphan, and the now-famous queer icon Anne Lister, as they meet at boarding school when they are 14 and fall in love. The book is meticulously researched, with fascinating and excruciating details about being a young woman of colour in England at the time. Heavy, but beautiful.

batsy Great review! My heart still aches for Eliza 💔 6d
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @batsy thanks! I know, me too 😢 6d
