Hi ! I recently read:
Human Acts by Han Kang
There There by Tommy Orange
I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
All were pretty good, except There There felt so surreal - I couldn't believe that the ending... was actually the ending! I can't believe the story went in that direction, I mean. But it was really touching and inspiring.
I Am The Messenger let me down a bit. I felt that some parts were odd and the whole thing didn't exactly tie together perfectly.
I'm currently reading Giovanni's Room!

I read There There a few months ago!! I agree with you about the ending—I was super surprised, but it was a really good story.
I've only read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (for school) but I'd like to try to read more of his works.
Human Acts sounds really interesting! I'll definitely check it out.
