The tail end of this year has been a horrible one in terms of reading- I’ve been in a perpetual slump since September, so much so that I’ve completely given up on TBRs. And to think I was ambitious enough to try for 120 books this year!
With my recent Book Outlet purchase- I’m planning a haul post soon!-, I bought A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Sayyeda from Literary Hues recommended the read to me and, in turn, I thought it would be perfect in taking me out of my slump. And yes, I was wrong. 10 points from Slytherin, I guess.
Despite the fact that I’m only 200 pages in the book out of a whopping 700, I’m thoroughly enjoying the read- even though my extremely slow pace frustrates me like nothing else. I’m not sure about the entirety of the novel, but so far I’ve encountered a minimal amount of dialogue. Most of what I read have been stunningly amazing passages detailing the creation of these beautifully three-dimensional characters. Although I’m enjoying the character setup greatly, hopefully Yanagihara incorporates more dialogue as I delve into the central parts of A Little Life.
So far, so good. Sayyeda, I’m holding you to this!
