  1. Ahh yay I’m so glad you enjoyed your first Rooney! I ordered this and a couple of the other Faber short stories and I’m still impatiently waiting for them to arrive. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on her novels!

    • If this is a good example of the standard within the Faber Stories range, I’ll certainly be picking up more! I got the Sylvia Plath one at the same time as this, so I’ll hopefully give that a try soon.

      I’m so hyped for Rooney’s novels now! Do you recommend starting with a particular one? A few reviews said Mr Salary has a similar vibe to Conversations with Friends, so I’m thinking maybe that one?

      • Very excited to see what you think of the Sylvia Plath – I didn’t end up getting that one because I was already ordering 4 others and I thought I should limit myself, but I do want to get it at some point, maybe after I finally read Ariel.

        It’s funny because I’ve been noticing that people tend to STRONGLY prefer one of her novels over the other, but they were both solidly 5 stars for me. I’m definitely team Conversations With Friends if I have to choose, but even assuming that’s also the case for you I’m not sure which I’d recommend, reading the better one first to hook you, or saving the best for last? I read Normal People first and I was happy with reading them in that order, for what it’s worth!

  2. These are a great wsy to try out new authors, aren’t they? I’ll be interested to hear what you think of her novels if you get to them. I loved one and wasn’t fussed on the other 😊
