I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys is a great read for anyone looking for a new book.

Any other recommendations out there?

Hi!

Im so glad I found this bowl! Does anyone want to share what they are reading at the moment?

Did anyone read this yet ? I'm not sure how much I liked the paragraph long sentences but it has some very distinctive Kafkaesque tones. The book has already seen widely different reviews from different political camps. Ex-McKinsey & Company consultants are really becoming mainstream authors now.

Any good book recommendations? Looking for fiction. I love books like Anxious People, Midnight Library, Waiting for Godot (theatre play)

Got this little gem as part of a bundle for my classroom. Absolutely delightful! Set in 1946 in Chicago, Cline-Ransome does a magical job of describing how a young boy struggles with death, moving, bullying, and learning of his own heritage. I can’t wait to share this with my students!

Godot is the Call from the recruiter which never came...
This was the most pertinent book which I picked after getting rejected from all of MBB at the resume stage or never hearing back from boutiques like OW despite getting in all the networking, resume review sessions and referrals in. The frustration only intensifies absurdism lol.
In hindsight, Existentialists are not the best people to read during dwindling confidence xD. Great book though otherwise

I'd heard a lot about Evelyn Waugh as a wickedly funny author much in the vein of a Wilde and Wodehouse. Though I didn't find him as ingenious as Wodehouse but his plots were quite engaging. A nice read !!

The whole book is just an exercise in wholesomeness. The book reads like a script and no wonder it's getting adapted on the big screen with Tom Hanks playing the titular character.
