Because these books grant their owners the ability to do things like experience joy, or inflict pain, or move at great speed, or disappear into shadows that the book itself creates. And we're not going to get into the details, but what I want you to know is, since you love books that are realistic, they're set in our world, but they might just have one thing that's different, this book is just like that.

Normal People was the Waterstones Book of the Year 2019 and won the Costa Novel of the Year in 2018.But if you are a girl of color like me, you’re more pressed for options—while authors like Akwaeke Emezi, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jacqueline Woodson are writing us gloriously into narratives, few of them receive Rooney levels of hype or status. The reality remains that coming-of-age narratives by people of color are considered racialized works first, and coming-of-age narratives second. The site's critic consensus states, "Anchored by Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal's vulnerable performances, Normal People is at once intimate and illuminating, beautifully translating the nuances of its source material.

Rooney's second novel is one you read in three days flat, a Tube stop-missing, escalator-reading tale .Honestly, I found it a bit intense, but I believe the book portrays that deeper connection and confusion between the two main characters seem particularly special.

Marianne confronts Connell about her feelings for him and they kiss, but he's uncertain due to social pressures and keeps their acquaintance hidden. Sally Rooney co-wrote the television adaptation of Normal People which was broadcast on the BBC in 2020. What's interesting as the book progresses is the way their roles reverse, especially when they go to Trinity College in Dublin. After meeting at a party, they decide they still want each other in their lives despite Marianne having moved on. However, my team and I will delete comments that are hurtful or intended to shame members of this community, particularly if they are left by first-time commenters.I thought that you were interested in true fantasy or sci-fi books that are to your liking, but we're looking for more like starter titles. Connell ultimately decides to take the offer with Marianne's support, although she refuses to come with him, finally feeling content with her life in Dublin.

Okay, Natalie, of the books we talked about, they were Olga Dies Dreaming by Xóchitl González, The Book of Doors by Gareth Brown, and The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty. Connell is a popular, handsome, and highly intelligent secondary school student who begins a relationship with the unpopular, intimidating, equally intelligent Marianne, whose mother employs Connell's mother as a cleaner. After Rob commits suicide on New Year's Eve, Connell's mental health suffers, and he goes home to Sligo for the funeral. And at the same time, as much as they want to make mom happy, they also have this inclination to just take her ideals and throw them back in her face.
