⭐️⭐️⭐️ • I liked The New Me a lot more, but this is also a perfectly depressing read. Again, would only recommend this to a select few.

⭐️⭐️⭐️• There‘s something lazy about the plot and writing. And I really hated having to listen to Scott‘s inner thoughts. In general, so many men…waxing philosophical. But fine!

⭐️⭐️• Unpopular opinion, but this did not work for me. The Ellen letters format to tell us about the past was the cheesiest thing I‘ve read in a long time. Super quick brainless read, though.

Sex and Vanity | Kevin Kwan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ • I think this is a such a fun modern take on A Room With A View, but I wonder how many CRA fans know ARWAV and know this is a retelling? Could account for the meh reviews. Anyway, like all of Kwan‘s novels, I didn‘t want it to end — a really delightful escapist read. (I do think the title is wrong, though. And not making a bigger thing of the pond skinny dipping scene is a miss.)

⭐️⭐️ • I hated this. I haven‘t read the script for or seen the musical, so maybe just doesn‘t translate well to a novel? I was picturing Ben Platt the whole time which made it worse. Can‘t wait to hate-watch the movie version.

No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams

⭐️⭐️ ½ • Read before watching the Hulu movie. Not a literary masterpiece by any means, but a welcome distraction for me right now. A bonkers throwaway thriller that makes for a quick read. (Warning: It does get quite violent and gory.)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • This book reminded me that I know nothing about space and I know nothing about science. I devoured it, despite the spacey science. (I did skim over a lot of the spacey science, won‘t lie.)

⭐️⭐️• This could have been so much better and I really wanted it to be. Interesting concept but not well-written. Took me forever to read because I didn‘t care at all about any of the characters.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • Tackles a lot and is so well-written. Religion, race, addiction, depression, science — could be messy but isn‘t. As others have noted, very different from Homegoing.

⭐️⭐️• It feels so pretentiously written, it‘s almost funny but also perfect because ✨theatRE ✨ people are generally pretentious. But it‘s also totally ridiculous and hard to read. The last two sections read better, but can‘t make up for the long slog of a first section.

The Four Winds: A Novel | Kristin Hannah
post image
Panpan

⭐️⭐️ • Unpopular opinion: It‘s very readable, but so so simple and eye roll-inducing — somewhat like a softer and less interesting version of Grapes of Wrath? A romanticized take on the Great Depression? I guess there are moderates who need fiction stories like this to understand the evils of capitalism and class warfare? For me, it pales in comparison to The Nightingale and The Great Alone.

⭐️ • First, this book should come with a suicide TW and I would absolutely never recommend this to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide. This has a very simplistic way of looking at mental health that is rather problematic — Just try harder at living! NO REGRETS! I have a regret: reading this book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • Truly liked this more than I thought I would. Really readable, and a great addition to both The Handmaid‘s Tale book and Hulu series.
