I finished reading We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver a few days ago, on a car ride. I’ve been reading the book off and on for maybe the past month and a half or so, after putting it on my to-read list when the movie was released all the way back in 2011 (dude, in 2011 I was 14… what a wee beb I was!) and I decided I loved Ezra Miller and wanted to see everything he was in. Well, I finally got around to it, @14y/oMax! I found the damn book at a thrift store a year and a half ago and now I’ve finished the thing and I’m writing down some thoughts!
So, I guess I’m doing book reviews now..? The funny thing is, when I was younger (like 10 or so), I used to go through books so quickly that my mom started making me write book reviews for each book I finished before she would buy me a new one. A little bit of a buffer zone for her wallet I guess, haha. I had this huge Word doc on the family computer just filled with my summaries and ‘thoughts’. I put ‘thoughts’ in quotes because they were mostly just things like, “I liked Hermione. I don’t know why, but I did.” Very insightful stuff!
