“She sat her down on a small couch and gave her a Perrier, which gave Lolly hiccups and made her start crying even harder.” 💙

This month’s pick did not disappoint!! Loved this retelling of Anna Karenina! Let me first state that I have never read Anna Karenina so my review is just based on this retelling but after reading Anna K, it ALMOST makes me want to pick up Anna Karenina and I do NOT typically like classics. This story had all the drama a la Gossip Girl and it definitely was so current – I think any older teen would love this book and yes, I would recommend this to older YA readers because of adult situations. It’s a coming of age story with spoiled, rich kids but there are layers to them and while the cast of characters was numerous, they all felt really well developed. I loved the representation with aspects of the author’s Korean-American culture woven into the narrative. The soundtrack to this book is off the chain! I made a Spotify playlist from all the songs referenced and found 22 amazing songs (mostly when they’re in a club) but it gave such a fun vibe while reading. There is romance, partying, dogs (I know, random right?), shopping, sex and infidelity – a wild but absolutely fun ride!
Don’t worry, my daughter just posed for this book, she is not reading it (yet!) 🤣💙
Thank you to flatiron_books and Edelweiss for an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 💙

  1. Yay! So happy you had a fun read with Anna K! 🇰🇷 we need a little escapism right about now. LOVE the #strikeaposewithannak pic!💙💖💙

  2. This pic is so cute! I need to convince my daughter to be my model. We definitely have the time now that she’s home indefinitely.
