The past two weeks have been quite hectic and emotional. I'm fine, no worries but there's been stuff going on and I don't quite feel like writing whole write ups for the books I've read. I'll just give you highlights, I suppose.

Dark Rooms by Liil Anolik - A dark mystery that pulled me along intensely until the last fifty pages or so where I felt it lost steam. Still not sure how I feel about the resolution of a certain plotline, either. But the writing was good and it was a debut so I'm looking forward to more from her in the future.

Unrequited: Women and Romantic Obsession by Lisa A. Phillips - Super interesting nonfiction look at the history, psychology and social connotations of women and unrequited love. Gave me a lot to think about and taught me the super amazing phrase 'uterine fury' (thanks, Middle Ages!).

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas - Fun new take on 'Beauty and the Beast' using old school faeries and faerie mythology as its basis. There were a ridiculous amount of twists and turns and it was maybe a hundred pages longer than it needed to be but it grabs you by the hand and pulls you along the whole way. First in a trilogy and I'm curious where it's planning to go.

And, to end, a great series of screengrabs from a show I was watching the other night. Words to live by, I think.

Truer words never spoken. In it for the free dinner.
