Also, this is the first time I've articulated this, but one of my favorite books—and movies—is Call Me By Your Name. (Rereading the book last year was one of my greatest joys of 2018.) Boy, what I would give to find a coming-of-age and romance with that same pull. ❤️❤️❤️ #MSWL

But also, I am still so hungry to find terrific, hooky, voice-driven contemporary/realistic. Am especially hungry from those told from POVs I don't already intimately know already. I want to be surprised!

And please, my greatest and most everlasting and true #MSWL is to find an epistolary novel in the tradition (or not? — surprise me!) of I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (my favorite book of all time) or the Montmaray Journals by Michelle Cooper. 🖊️🖊️🖊️

I think I've said here that I want a book abt the French Revolution – but just in case, I really want a book abt the French Revolution #MSWL

Thank you!
