Little Fires Everywhere

Little Fires Everywhere is the perfect fall reading escape! I loved everything about this story – the characters, the writing, the resolution. I haven’t read Celeste Ng’s first novel, Everything I Never Told You, but if the writing of this book is any indication of her abilities, I’m putting it on my #tbrpile immediately. Ng proved herself to be a masterful storyteller and I loved every layer she weaved in her portrayal of Shaker Heights. One of my favorite things was the way Ng would begin talking about a character and seamlessly slip into their backstory without the reader even noticing. I think this showcases her writing ability the most. I became so engrossed with the story that I found I wanted to abandon all #adulting responsibilities just so I could find out what happened sooner. It was one of those books that I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, yet simultaneously wanted to intentionally slow down and savor every word. This will easily be one of my favorite reads of the year!
