City of Girls: Elizabeth Gilbert

Goddamn, I love this book! I fracking loved it. I almost couldn’t stand the part when Vivian’s first forays into adulthood in New York City ended and she drifted into “adulthood,” [and my interest started to drift, too] only to find the ending in her golden years so goddamn poignant and touching it outdid the prelude.

In a literary period when every other book title seems to have to have the word “girl” in the title, it was refreshing to read something so original and ‘real.”
