Finished reading: The Quiet Boy by Ben H. Winters 📚 I didn’t quite buy a couple of critical story hooks, but found myself engrossed nevertheless. The main character’s choices lead him into a slow-motion car wreck that’s hard to look away from. ⭐⭐⭐1/2

Finished reading: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel by Bryn Greenwood 📚 A remarkable book. Challenging, sweet, disturbing, romantic, and heartbreaking. I couldn’t put it down. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
