I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

An Untamed State - Roxane Gay

Happy New Year everyone!


This is a page turner for real. I started this book last night, received a call, and had to put it down. I was 35 pages in and had a lot to say. After the call I picked it back up and 5 hours later, at 3am, my body had to stop, but my mind definitely wanted to keep going. I know I will finish An Untamed State this morning. I don't think I can go on with my day without knowing the outcome of this horrific story.
