5⭐️ I thoroughly enjoyed this book for so many reasons. The characters were very well fleshed-out and relatable, and I loved their sexual and emotional chemistry. The politics were also very on point, and the conflict felt realistic, especially given that these were queer characters. I can‘t wait to read Casey McQuiston‘s next book! #takeprideinreading

Became an active reader again, read 82 books, and finished Read Harder challenge in 2018. Really enjoyed stretching to more diverse voices and genres. Here‘s the top 10 books I read this year (in no particular order): Lumberjanes Vol. 1, Lonesome Dove, Milk & Honey, Convenience Store Woman, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The Kiss Quotient, We Are Okay, Circe, An American Marriage, and The Lightkeepers.

Convenience Store Woman | Sayaka Murata

“She‘s far happier thinking her sister is normal, even if she has problems, than she is having an abnormal sister for whom everything is fine. For her, normality-however messy-is far more comprehensible.” I want to give a copy of this book to everyone I know. Thank you to Sayaka Murata and translator Ginny Tapley Takemori for this beautiful novel.

We Are Okay | Nina LaCour

“We were nostalgic for a time that wasn‘t yet over.” This is how I felt about this book. I was cherishing it and missing it before I was even finished. Nina LaCour is a phenomenal writer.

Circe | Madeline Miller

I loved this book! Circe was a complex and relatable character, and I loved revisiting the story we know from the Odyssey and seeing her story get expanded. I love Greek and Roman myths, and it was really exciting to see this fresh perspective from (finally!) a female perspective. Now I really want to read Song of Achilles!
