Bookshelf: Luster by Raven Leilani

Sunday, December 20, 2020
Between this novel and Kiley Reid's Such a Fun Age, this really is the time for 23-25 year-old protagonists finding themselves in various forms of unhealthy relationships, then end up finding whatever piece of themselves they needed to find. And as someone smack dab in the middle of the age range, I hope I can find that piece, too, but without the unhealthy relationships.

Most women I see reflected in pop culture in that age group are people who have at least their professional life together. So to see two complicated women who don't know what they want to do with their lives at this age is refreshing. We're pressured younger and younger to know exactly what we want to do with our lives and it's exhausting.
