CONVERSATIONS WITH FRIENDS by Sally Rooney

I know Sally Rooney is all the rage right now so I was really looking forward to reading this book. I'm watching the TV series Normal People based on Rooney's other book and am really liking it so far so I went into this book with the expectation that I would really like it too. And while I did like it, I'm not sure I can say I'm head-over-heels delighter over it, or even that I like it *that* much.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME by André Aciman

I discovered this book by virtue of researching Timothee Chalamet's filmography--an actor I've been intrigued by since watching his performances in Little Women, Lady Bird, The King and Dune. I haven't watched this movie yet, which is supposed to be one of his best, and decided to read the book first before watching it, just to get familiar with the story.
