YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS – Kristen Roupenian
Some short stories for the winter TBR!
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
I am, and always have been, a fan of short story collections. Especially when the author sticks to a common theme across them. Kristen Roupenian’s YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS contains 12 short stories that have the common theme of interactions between genders in regards to sex and power.
There is a wide variety within this book. Plenty of differing perspectives and genres but all of them read with the same wit and writing style. As always, there will be standouts but I think with how different they all are, they bring something different and unique to the table. I don’t think there were really any that I just didn’t enjoy.
If you like short story collections then this is a no-brainer! Some of these will really stick with you and make you think. That’s always a great sign of a book when you find yourself reflecting on it after finishing.
