DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The first half of the book is better than the second half, because the second half mainly focuses on the romantic relationship between the two leads, and while this is fine, I would've been more thrilled with a less razor-sharp focus on this one specific element. I would have liked a broader horizon in terms of plot, like in the first half of the book.

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.
