[Book Review] Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia // a hauntingly familiar coming-of-age and noir blend

I’ll be honest. The only reason I requested this book is because of the shark on the cover. 😅 However, I ended up absolutely loving it! (Not to mention completely and totally falling for Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s writing. Am I off to get more of her books now? I can neither confirm nor deny.)

I used to tell people that I wasn’t really interested in literary fiction. Turns out, I’m just uninterested in literary fiction written by and featuring cishet white men.
