Tonight I’m Someone Else by Chelsea Hodson

Catapult Catapult Chelsea Hodson promo

The book is an anthology of essays. In the broadest sense, she belongs to the new generation of contemporary female authors, such as Melissa Broder and Darcie Wilder. and I mean it in a good way. This elevated version of Twitter and blog posting, for example. It’s all middle-class specificity and aspiration for something more in this more complex, poetic, and long-form approach to self-deprecation, narcissism, depression, pop culture, and fascination with brief love and young men who are both attractive and ‘problematic.’ But it’s written in such a lovely way. This book reads like a poem in every paragraph.

No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July

Miranda July has an unusual way of writing about odd people. Her comic-tragic tales are engrossing. There is a lot of dark humour, and I was initially fascinated and moved by her people’s quirks, neuroses, and peculiarities. However, about two-thirds of the way through, I began to notice that, despite the fact that the characters shifted, some male, some female, Miranda July’s voice dominated. The joyous diversions (in the sense of randomness and original thought, an escape from the stale systems of normalised communication) of innocence are small and corrupted, and the grains of hope they contain are often shattered, but there is the shadow of a feeling, maybe even an angry whisper, that things don’t have to be this way.

This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz

This Is How You Lose Her Junot Diaz

Diaz is a fantastic storyteller, and his writing only gets better with time. The protagonist Yunior is central to all of the stories in this collection. Diaz’s fiction is laced with personal memoir in such a way that it feels personal to the reader right away. There are experiences that you can’t say you didn’t borrow, even though it was reluctantly. He tangles immigrant outcaste-ness with the irreversible character of becoming a dishonest man, a man guilty of any other shame and sorrow, despite the fact that the Dominican Republic’s past is heavily visible and inseparable. All of the Junior appealed to me. Diaz’s writing is almost hypnotic, and I had to fight the urge to assume that these were my own personal experiences to profit from.

Zipper Mouth by Laurie Weeks

182935

It reminded me of coming home with my best friend after a long night of drinking and running around and listening to them ramble on about their lives and scary and funny encounters we’d shared. The narrator of Zippermouth addresses you as though you were a best friend, and Weeks’ writing is so intense that you can’t help but feel the bond. Some portions of this book brought tears to my eyes, while others made me laugh out loud (twice on public transportation, unfortunately). It’s published in an adventurous style that includes everything from stream-of-consciousness to poor adolescent poetry. I like how it depicts the long-term consequences of drug abuse in families while also pointing out flaws in the US mental health system.

After You

For those who don’t remember, this is the second instalment of Jojo Moyes’ me before you trilogy. As we all know, Louisa Clark loses the love of her life in Me Before You, and this book is about how she deals with it. She is no longer the brouhaha-filled girl from the first book; she is a completely different individual. There are a few new characters introduced (spoiler alert), but it’s probably best if you don’t know who they are. Another piece of advice is to go out and buy a box of tissues because you can cry a lot and fall in love with LOUISA CLARK.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

P7

It’s ironic, though, that a book like this is now considered women’s fiction and written by women, since, as everyone who knows their social background knows, men were the primary buyers and readers of books during the time Miss Austen wrote. The explanation for this was because it was thought that women couldn’t handle fiction well because their weak little minds couldn’t normally distinguish between fact and fiction. With this in mind, and if you, like me, are a man who has resisted reading this book so far, I urge you to do so because there is so much to appreciate and consider here.

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn

8ab313e5 6b1d 418f bc59 b6011bc0e533

From the beginning, I was completely engrossed! I adored the author’s writing style and the way she developed the plot. The “gossip” society papers added a pleasant touch to this novel. It was absolutely funny. I really enjoyed the chemistry, romance, and sweet banter between Kate and Anthony. This book has it all, including a witty heroine and hero, as well as hilarious moments that made me laugh out loud. I didn’t stop reading until the wee hours of the morning. This book is excellent and a must-read for all historical romance lovers.

A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole 

0d17319eed765b3625d8d6710b8ed448

This is the first book in the incredibly popular paranormal romance series by Kresley Cole, featuring alpha heroes, kick-ass heroines, wacky humour, hot sexytimes and just general mayhem and awesomeness. Characters are one of my favourite aspects of this film. They, too, are always extreme in their personalities—no wishy-washy, cardboard cutout supporting characters here. They’re all lively, sometimes funny or outrageously wicked, and they practically leap off the screen. It’s a series with a lot of quotes and amusing lines.

Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman.

683e22e92eeb2c08d5f3e08ded9162ae

I saw the film, read the book, saw the film again, and then read the book once more. The storey has a lot to say about human intimacy. The intimacy that allows you to comprehend every detail about another human being, the intimacy that allows you to bond with others to the point where you consider them a part of your very identity. Such a relation happens infrequently, and even when it does, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event. But it’s the most special thing that can happen to you, even though you’re a million miles apart and all you have is nostalgia and a bittersweet feeling that you were a part of something magical to keep you going.
