It's been a while since I've read a book worthy of isolating myself into pure literary bliss. For Christmas, my Mother gifted me with Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. The book is a novelization primarily focused on Zelda Fitzgerald, the beautiful, zany southern dreamer who falls in love with an aspiring literary king, otherwise known as F. Scott Fitzgerald. As the book illustrates in such a brilliant fashion, the pair fall madly in love, dancing around the world on new quests to fulfill Scott's literary inspirations in the height of the jazz age. From their blossoming young romance to trials in addiction and aspiration, this book is truly the most excellent (beach) read. Purchase via Amazon, here.
