Our September 2021 Box was packed to the brim with Fall favourites!
Book: Beautiful World, Where Are You
A novel about life, friendships, and relationships. Sally Rooney takes us inside the friendship of Eileen and Alice as they describe their daily life in emails. We see their hopes, dreams, worries and wonder if their search for meaning and happiness is similar to our own. Even though their lives are different than ours we cannot help but ask ourselves the same questions. Both Alice and Eileen are realistic, complex and like all of us are seeking a human connection in their friends and lovers. We feel this novel will be one you want to talk about and look forward to your thoughts!
