Alphabetical by Author: Nickolas Butler

Admittedly, it's been awhile since I actually read 'Shotgun Lovesongs' by Nickolas Butler, so this review won't be terribly detailed. In short, I loved this book. It hit just the right note of sentimental and uplifting and, even though not many of us have best friends who are also rock stars, the characters are relatable. And they aren't just relatable; you'll actually feel for them and want to see them succeed. Rather than stick to just a single narrator, the narrator shifts between the main characters from chapter to chapter, so you get everyone's perspective. There is no bad guy, and there is no good guy. In other words, they're just like you and your friends--trying to do things the right way, but sometimes stumbling. And because of that, you're going to feel all the feels.

Definitely an author I will circle back to when I'm done with this whole alphabet project.

Next up: 'Telegraph Avenue' by Michael Chabon
