So I discovered a new author in 2017: Celeste Ng. Holy smokes is she amazing. Such an absolutely beautiful voice in the fiction world. I just get goosebumps thinking about her subtle brilliance. She has a quiet power in her writing which includes diversity and family secrets. Her novels are intricate and include so many moving parts. I must stress that all of those moving parts do not make for a complicated and overwhelming novel. They make for a perfect immersive reading experience. You settle in and let the powerful beauty overtake you. She is who you should be reading people.
I read Little Fires Everywhere this past weekend. Upon finishing it, I have been thinking of how to write this post. I knew I wanted to recommend it but I was trying figure out the best way to write a “review”. I decided to cover my bases and just recommend Celeste Ng as an author!
I listened to the audio version of Everything I Never Told Me. Wow. That was such a powerful book. I feel bad that I cannot really give you more details about why I liked it but some things are just not meant to be put into words. I fear that telling you what elements appealed to me will give away too much. All I will tell you is READ IT.
Here is I chose to read Little Fires Everywhere. I felt it was best to pour an adult beverage and settle in for an enjoyable reading experience.
This is me after I completed Little Fires Everywhere.
I just wanted to give it a big hug.
