Gift Guide for Sad Girl
“There’s a particular feeling in your body when something goes right after a long time of things going wrong. It feels warm and sweet and loose.” —Lily King, Writers & Lovers
Sometimes you want to read stories full of twists and turns and other times you just want a complex female character with relatable sadness. These books are for the latter. Each of these stories follows the life of intricate and sometimes delusional characters with very little or no plot for when you’re looking for semi relatable existential drama for the sad girl in all of us.
