A Little Life

by Hanya Yanagihara

My life was on pause while I read this book. Astonishing; sometimes heart-warming, overwhelmingly heart-breaking. Maxwell’s review of “I can’t, with a clear conscience, give this book anything less than 5 stars” rang truer with every page turn because I kind of hate this book and never want to see it again, but it’s also the most wonderful novel I’ve ever laid eyes on.
