A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara

(Please check TW warnings before reading this book!!) Seriously one of the most devastating and well-written books I‘ve ever read. This one is going to stay with me for awhile.

This book took me a long time to read. It made me uncomfortable and nauseas, but that just proves the effectiveness of the storytelling and writing. Such a powerful novel.

Pretty Things: A Novel | Janelle Brown

A good, twisty novel. A lot of repetition and some repeat phrases, but the twist at the end kind of makes up for it?

My life has been changed by this book. 10/10 party, 7/10 ending.

BarbaraBB That‘s quite a recommendation! 10mo
anniebannanie it‘s incredible! a must-read! @BarbaraBB 10mo
BarbaraBB I did and enjoyed it but it didn‘t have that impact on me. It‘s great however when a book has such an effect. Who did you root for in the book? 10mo

anniebannanie I think one of the main reasons I enjoyed the book so much was because I wasn‘t sure who to root for. For me, I definitely felt a connection to almost all of the characters @BarbaraBB 10mo
BarbaraBB I can see why. There are a lot great characters indeed. I especially liked the Japanese ambassador (?) and his translator, the opera singer and the Vice President 10mo
BarbaraBB Oh and the girl who looked like a boy! 10mo
anniebannanie You have good taste, I enjoyed all of them! I do have to say though, the epilogue was disappointing. What do you think? @BarbaraBB 10mo
BarbaraBB Yes I agree, it didn‘t add anything and was a bit of a hasty wrap up don‘t you think? 10mo
