    How good is it!? I was captivated, afterwards I read everything *about* it that I could just to prolong the experience somehow. Apparently a movie was in the works but it (thankfully, I think!) got stalled.

    I mostly enjoyed The Goldfinch but I think a friend's comment about Shantaram applies: "There's a really good book in there, but it's only about an inch thick."

    I'm just reading pretty much any James Patterson book I can get from the library... Also, re-reading Hunger Games...

    Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas.

    Did you like Yes Please? I found myself disliking Amy Poehler after reading it.

    I blubbered like I haven't in a long time while reading that book. Felt very personal. Can't bring myself to watch the movie yet incase it doesn't live up

    I love Amy Poehler, I think it was a really bad idea for her to write a book. She's not a great writer. It was quite boring and name drop-y and not as funny as I'd hoped.
