The Travelers by Regina Porter centers around the lives of two families that includes a New York attorney, an African American woman, a married sailor on an air craft carrier in Vietnam, an interracial and academic scholar couple, a lesbian starting life over again in 1970s’ Berlin, a black moving man stranded during a Thanksgiving storm in Portsmouth and two half-brothers who meet for the first time in their adulthood.
Strange, surreal, peculiar are some of the adjectives that come to mind when I think about Bunny by Mona Awad. This unusual book took me to The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and to the universe of Wes Anderson.
If you’re looking for a recent release perfect for your Summer vacation, look no further! That’s City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert!
Luanda Lisboa Paraíso é o segundo romance da escritora Djaimilia Pereira de Almeida e estou completamente rendida. Quero ler bem em breve o seu primeiro livro, Esse Cabelo!
Here’s my favorite book of June. Here’s one of my favorite books of all times. Thank you, Tara Westover, for writing Educated, for bringing this book into the world.
I just have to say that Ali Smith is a genius. The literary quality hasn’t been compromised in any way. It must be tough, very tough. But she just manages it because she is Ali Smith, a magician of some sorts!
What a wonderful, sensitive and poignant short book! I am absolutely in love with Lie With Me by Philippe Besson. I don’t usually like to make comparisons between books. But, when I say that this book reminded me of Call Me By Your Name, I mean it in the best way possible.
I really wanted to love Can You Tolerate This? by Ashleigh Young. I mean, it was perfect for me! It’s an essay collection about youth, ambition, anxiety, the challenges of personal transformation and disappointment! It sounds right up my alley, right? Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to connect to Young’s universe.
Everything Here Is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee, that came out last year, is a novel that essentially deals with mental illness.
Just finished my first book of June! I've never read anything like Demi-Gods by Eliza Robertson before. While being a very unique and experimental novel, Demi-Gods, that takes place in the fifties/sixties, has a vibe that took me back to The Virgin Suicides and Call Me By Your Name.
