Hi everyone! I haven't participated in one of the WWW Wednesdays in over 3 years, so I thought it would be a nice change to start it up again! So, without further ado, let's get into what I've been reading!
I'm currently reading two different books. I am reading Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi for book club and A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout for fun (so excited about this one!).
Last week, I finished Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. It is extremely different from the types of books I typically reach for, but it was an interesting switch!
Next, I will be reading Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv for a school research paper, and in October, I am looking forward to reading The Brightest Night by Jennifer L. Armentrout!
What are you currently reading or thinking of starting? If you participate in WWW Wednesday, leave a link in the comments, and I will be sure to check it out! :)
Things are sweeter when they're lost.
- The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Synopsis: The Beautiful and Damned, F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel, tells the story of Anthony Patch, a 1920s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune. Anthony and his wife Gloria are young and gorgeous, rich and leisured, and dedicate their lives to the reckless pursuit of happiness. But this intimate story turns tragic, as their marriage disintegrates under the weight of their expectations, dissipation, jealousy and aimlessness.
Fitzgerald skilfully portrays the east-coast elite as the Jazz Age begins its ascent, engulfing all classes into what will soon be known as Cafe Society. As with all of Fitzgerald's novels, it is a brilliant character study written in breathtaking prose. It is also a gripping account of the complexities of marriage, largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship with his wife, Zelda.
