I’m excited because it matches my reading quite well. I had read My Sister, the Serial Killer before longlist, then read An American Marriage (good read, tragic characters), and I just finished Milkman, which I really liked. I also just bought Ordinary People and I seldom buy books new. I liked Evans’ 26A years ago. That leaves Circe which I’m unsure of. I’m not a huge fan of Greek tales but I can get it on audiobook eventually. Silence of the Girls is my last pick because it isn’t at my library yet.
