Call Me by Your Name first swept across the world in 2007. It is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

An honest love letter in the form of a novel.

Formidably read, every angst filled chapter is true and honest and oh so relatable. Armie Hammer is reading from the point of view of the main character, and not the character he portrayed in the film adaptation. He does this gorgeously. Possibly one of the most important reads for any gay boy/teen/man and their families. Acimen is a genius.

The spellbinding new Robert Langdon novel from the author of The Da Vinci Code. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earth-shaking discovery that will answer them.

Like most Dan Brown books, I couldn't stop once I've started. The "unthinkable idea" of this book, as in that of all of his stories, requires great contemplation that will haunt me for weeks after finishing the book. I struggled to tear myself away from the story, and fear the ideas therein will have the same hold on me for some time to come.
