✨ Thrifted ✨

Wow. What a challenging set of stories 🥲 It is incredibly gory and harsh and so  I found it quite challenging to get through. 
I didn’t have a clue about the historical events so it was eye-opening to read fictionalised accounts on it.

When I first read Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, I wasn’t sure how to process it as it was so heavy. This one was definitely the same but I managed it in the end. Trigger warnings are included below 🥺
