Favorite (New) Read of the Month: Normal People by Sally Rooney

Physical:

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – ♥♥♥♥♥
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang – ♥♥♥♥♥
Love Like Crazy by Megan Squires – ♥♥♥♥
Normal People by Sally Rooney – ♥♥♥♥♥
break your glass slippers by amanda lovelace – ♥♥♥♥♥
A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen – ♥♥♥♥
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen (re-read) – ♥♥♥♥♥
Everything Beautiful by Simmone Howell – ♥♥♥
The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven – ♥
Beach Read by Emily Henry – ♥♥♥♥♥
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (re-read) – ♥♥♥♥♥

Look at all those five-stars!!! Nothing makes me happier than a five-star physical read. I had a lot of fun re-reading some of my faves like Fangirl—it brought me a lot of comfort during this difficult time. I’ve been spending most of my time reading romance heavy during the pandemic because it’s easy and makes me happy. I’m so glad I finally got to reading Helen Hoang’s books and I can’t wait for the third book to come out next year. Both are own voices with neurotypical main characters. I had been hearing about Beach Read a lot on Twitter so when it came in my Book of the Month box, I started it immediately. The hype is real! I have read everything by Amanda Lovelace, and I’m pretty sure break your glass slippers is my new favorite.

eBooks:

Deposing Nathan by Zack Smedley – ♥♥♥♥♥
Breath Like Water by Anna Zarzab – ♥♥♥♥♥
Private Lessons by Cynthia Salaysay – ♥♥
Admission by Julie Buxbaum – ♥♥♥♥
Finding Balance by Kati Gardner – ♥♥♥♥

All but one of these are ARCs so reviews will come soon, but Breath Like Water was superb and I really hope more people start talking about it. I borrowed Deposing Nathan from my library using Libby and wow. It was a punch to the gut—a difficult LGBTQ read that was incredibly well done.

Audiobooks:

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls – ♥♥♥♥♥
Please Don’t Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn – ♥♥♥
The Upside of Falling by Alex Light – ♥♥♥
Our Stop by Laura Jane Williams – ♥♥♥♥

I now understand why The Glass Castle is such a popular book. Jeannette Walls is an outstanding writer who tells her story in such a frank and honesty way. I loved how as she got older who tone changed to reflect the age. I wasn’t reading about a five-year-old through the lens of an adult.
