Hey there. Today’s book review is for Supper Club by Lara Williams.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Below you’ll find the description of the book provided by NetGalley, followed by my own personal review and star rating. Enjoy, and as always, thank you for stopping by. ?
Roberta spends much of her time trying not to take up space. At almost thirty, she is adrift and alienated from life. Stuck in her mindless job and reluctant to pursue her passion for food, she suppresses her appetite and recedes to the corners of rooms. But when she meets Stevie, a spirited and effervescent artist, their intense friendship sparks a change in Roberta, a shift in her desire for more.
Together, they invent the Supper Club, a transgressive and joyous collective of women who celebrate–rather than admonish–their hungers. They gather after dark and feast until they are sick; they break into private buildings and leave carnage in their wake; they embrace their changing bodies; they stop apologizing. For these women, the club is a way to explore, discover, and push the boundaries of the space they take up in the world–and reclaim it.
Yet as the club expands, growing both in size and rebellion, Roberta is forced to reconcile herself to the desires and vulnerabilities of the body–and the past she has worked so hard to repress. Devastatingly perceptive and savagely funny, Supper Club is an essential coming-of-age story for our times.
My Review :
This book was not for me. DNF at 20%. An event was held…and there was a scene that took place later in the bathroom that made me not want to continue reading. I usually try to push through, but I couldn’t see myself enjoying this book at all.
⭐️ (Only because most places do not allow you give zero.)
