A Little Life: A Novel by Hanya Yanagihara I finished this book a month ago and still think about it all the time. It's a very long, very heartbreaking story that I was hesitant to start, but I'm so glad I did. It's a beautifully written book, but tough at times because it deals with sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, and self harm. It was also a really great story covering decades of friendship and love of four men who met in college.
Get in Trouble: Stories by Kelly Link I wasn't at all familiar with Kelly Link's work and I don't typically like fictional short stories or fantasy/Sci-Fi stuff in general, but I kept seeing awesome reviews and gave it a shot. Unfortunately I don't feel like I was the right person for this quirky book. I liked the content of the stories, but could not get into the writing style. It was difficult for me to figure out who or what she was talking about most of the time. Bummer.
I received these books from NetGalley for review purposes.
