Trying SO hard to get over the fact that the author doesn‘t use quotation marks 😣 It makes it nearly impossible for me to get into the story and it drives me CRAZY!!!!! I‘m trying not to be irrationally sad about it, and I‘m waiting for a new copy of When the Sky Fell On Splendor Bc my copy came with the pages all hot glued together 😐 book of the month fail so far!!! #normalpeople #botm

Kimberlone A lot of European and Latin American writers write dialogue like this. It can be a difficult adjustment at first but I think it‘s just a matter of reading more books that are written with this convention. I remember reading Angela‘s Ashes when I was about 12-13 and I was very confused because that was first time I‘d seen an author write like that! 8mo
LazyLibrary @kimberlone I‘m determined to stick with it. It‘s always a struggle for me at first. I‘ve read books without them, but def prefer them!!!! I couldn‘t get into Severance a couple of botm‘s ago Bc of it, so maybe after this it will be a good time to try again while I‘m “quotation-free” 8mo
LazyLibrary I also feel like Requiem For A Dream was a difficult read Bc of it, but I could be mistaken. 8mo
The_Heeler_Booklife Wait, no quotation marks?! 😩😬😳 8mo
LazyLibrary @allthingskayla ☹️ Not in this read. It‘s just a personal preference of mine, but usually reading is effortless, this I‘ll have to actually try haha 8mo

I have gone missing for two weeks. Exam preparation time is KILLING me, and I have only read about a hundred pages of #NormalPeople by #SallyRooney. Amazon also cancelled my The Great Believers order and now tells me #KingofScars won‘t arrive until the middle of February 😭.

Great article about the bestseller #NormalPeople by #SallyRooney in The Guardian. It brings some good points about today‘s reading culture up. I‘m very happy that this book is waiting for me on my bookshelf💜.

Have you read it yet, and did you enjoy it as much as the article describes?
