Starting off the day right with books and pastries (sadly not one that I made this time!) 📖
Wishing I hadn’t watched the series before reading Normal People as the series and book are really similar (which would normally be a great thing!) but at points I felt like I wasn’t really as motivated to read it since I knew what happened!
Overall though I really enjoyed Normal People and loved the characters and how seamlessly the dialogue flowed together. The only thing I would say was you have to look past Rooney’s at times awkward writing and slightly odd metaphors (look at the Amazon reviews for some good examples 😂) in favour of getting into the plot.
Even so, I’m glad I finally listened to the hype and gave it a go as it was so nice to read a romance again! I also recently read Sally Rooney’s debut Conversation with Friends which was great, now stuck on what to go for next 📚
