Fates and Furies by Lauren GroffFates and Furies by Lauren Groff. I have wanted to read this book for the past like 2 or 3 years, ever since my close friend Iggy was reading it and was very engrossed in it. So much so that she was pretty much reading it every spare second she had and I wanted in on that action. Two years later, I finally got my hands on this book! Haha better late than never amirite? Fates and Furies is a story about a marriage over the span of twenty four years and takes place in New York. It all starts with Lotto and Mathilde, both very tall, good looking and at twenty two, they decide to get married after only meeting two weeks before and falling madly in love with each other.

But first, let me mention some of the things I thought were good about the book, before I so thoughtfully destroy it. Still, I have rarely if ever seen real, honest-to-God representations of these struggles portrayed in media. The book uses flashy, sometimes obnoxiously flowery language that had me rolling my eyes way back into my head at least every other page. However, there were perhaps five or six times a particularly poignant paragraph just punched me in the gut.
