⭐️⭐️⭐️ • I liked The New Me a lot more, but this is also a perfectly depressing read. Again, would only recommend this to a select few.

⭐️⭐️⭐️• There‘s something lazy about the plot and writing. And I really hated having to listen to Scott‘s inner thoughts. In general, so many men…waxing philosophical. But fine!

⭐️⭐️• Unpopular opinion, but this did not work for me. The Ellen letters format to tell us about the past was the cheesiest thing I‘ve read in a long time. Super quick brainless read, though.

Sex and Vanity | Kevin Kwan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ • I think this is a such a fun modern take on A Room With A View, but I wonder how many CRA fans know ARWAV and know this is a retelling? Could account for the meh reviews. Anyway, like all of Kwan‘s novels, I didn‘t want it to end — a really delightful escapist read. (I do think the title is wrong, though. And not making a bigger thing of the pond skinny dipping scene is a miss.)

⭐️⭐️ • I hated this. I haven‘t read the script for or seen the musical, so maybe just doesn‘t translate well to a novel? I was picturing Ben Platt the whole time which made it worse. Can‘t wait to hate-watch the movie version.

No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams

⭐️⭐️ ½ • Read before watching the Hulu movie. Not a literary masterpiece by any means, but a welcome distraction for me right now. A bonkers throwaway thriller that makes for a quick read. (Warning: It does get quite violent and gory.)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • This book reminded me that I know nothing about space and I know nothing about science. I devoured it, despite the spacey science. (I did skim over a lot of the spacey science, won‘t lie.)

⭐️⭐️• This could have been so much better and I really wanted it to be. Interesting concept but not well-written. Took me forever to read because I didn‘t care at all about any of the characters.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • Tackles a lot and is so well-written. Religion, race, addiction, depression, science — could be messy but isn‘t. As others have noted, very different from Homegoing.

⭐️⭐️• It feels so pretentiously written, it‘s almost funny but also perfect because ✨theatRE ✨ people are generally pretentious. But it‘s also totally ridiculous and hard to read. The last two sections read better, but can‘t make up for the long slog of a first section.
