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!
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.
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.
