this was definitily the oddest thing i have ever read...and i loved it
idk this premise hit a little to close to home for me, the depression, the empytness, the desire to sleep forever...all of it

why cant i be rich and have MY year of rest and relaxation

Honestly not sure what to say about this one. I was definitely intrigued by it. The ending felt a bit off for the rest of the story (I mean, I guess we did see it coming but still)

not much happens in this book tbh. it kinda feels like reading a drunk person's account of a fever dream. the narrator is unhinged. luckily, i have a soft spot for unhinged woman.
