A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

“I will find time to read this book if it kills me! The irony of putting out a book is that I have never had less time to read. I’ve had A Little Life on my nightstand for weeks now and have yet to crack it open. The only reason I haven’t started reading is that I know I won’t be able to put it down once I start. I fall head over heels for good books and have been known to not answer phone calls or emails for days at a time when I’m truly engrossed. I’m now saving A Little Life for a post-book tour congratulatory treat. When my book tour is done and I can finally relax a bit, I’m planning to post up in Malibu, turn on my vacation responder, and read, baby read.”
