Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There was a time in my life, my younger life, when it might've been cool to know these people. To sit around a table, pretending to sip wine I don't really like, and having conversations about anything. Getting annoyed, being annoying, circling back. Flirting, wondering if you're being flirted with. They aren't all likeable, but they seem to have interesting lives.

Now I'd probably find these people annoying, but to everything there is a season. The one thing that hasn't changed, since I first discovered Sally Rooney, is that I really love her writing.

It's uncomplicated, yet layered at the same time. It feels like the thoughts, actions, fears and failures of real people. Uncertainty, longing, insecurity — it's all there, like real life. 

I can't wait to see what Rooney writes through the years, as she cycles through the seasons of her own life and those experiences reflect through her work.

If you love talking about books, please follow or friend me on Goodreads. Let's be book buddies!
