Super hilarious and entertaining, the Guide is a fast read full of adventure, sarcasm, and bittersweet romance. I enjoyed all the characters throughly, and Ms. Lee does a wonderful job of depicting LGBTQ+ struggles in the 18th Century.

An excellent addition to the series! I‘ve been reading since the first book cake out in 2016, and I‘m lucky to say Ms. Blake is not one to disappoint. Full of well developed female characters and riveting plot that will keep anyone entertained.

Brave New World | Aldous Huxley

Compelling and provocative, Aldous Huxley‘s Brave New World illustrates an almost satiric, yet prophetic society that makes one wonder about the worth of our intrinsic values. The morality of happiness is questioned, and we are only left to wonder about the “right” to be unhappy.

So bittersweet; you think you know where the story is headed, only for it to take you in a whole new direction. It‘s refreshing and heart wrenching and nostalgic all at once. Life is full of unexpecteds, so learn to live soon.

The Round House | Louise Erdrich
Pickpick

An engrossing coming of age novel that truly exemplifies the chilling change adulthood burdens one with. The narrative was beautiful and all the characters were strangely compelling. The author doesn‘t use quotation marks, which I found odd at first; yet the stylistic choice highlights perhaps the unreliability of first person narrative.

The ending sent shivers down my spine! It‘s a little quick and disorienting, but it finishes the story well.
