Where the Crawdads Sing is a thought-provoking, wise, and deeply moving novel that reminds us that we are forever shaped by the child within us, while also subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps. Owens juxtaposes a beautiful ode to the natural world against a profound coming of age story and haunting mystery.

Beautiful World, Where Are You? - Sally Rooney
Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young - but life is catching up with them. They desire each other; they delude each other; they get together; they break apart. They have sex; they worry about sex; they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?
Stuck With You - Ali Hazelwood
Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn…
Happy reading angels.
