@rhondakap @kellymcgonigal If you haven't read this only read it if you want to be emotionally brutalized. Virtuoso portrayal of compassion but Jesus you could not make worse things happen to your characters. Almost sadistic. Amazing book but traumatic read      source

This is how I know I’ve read a GREAT BOOK... Weeks later, I’m just daydreaming, as I do, and I think I miss somebody, who is it? Oh, I miss Jude.... Then I realize Jude was a character in a book. An amazing book called #ALittleLife by #HanyaYanagihara and I miss him.      source
The greatest work of fiction I’ve ever read, with the simplest theme: All of us come with baggage and wounds and pain; all of us.      source
