Full confession: I have no idea how I came across We Are Never Meeting in Real Life. I know I got it from a library, but I have no idea why. I had the call numbers written all of these “serious” books on creativity and minds and thinking and business and being a genius and *spoiler alert* I didn’t get into any of them. But We Are Never Meeting In Real Life drew me in somehow and here I now am, writing about it. Call it the magic of a library shelf.
We Are Never Meeting In Real Life
by Samantha Irby
This book started out as a bath read. I randomly selected it from my pile of library books and took it into the bath with me on one of the early days of my summer holidays. In some ways, choosing a book to be a bath read is a high honour. I’m not going to get back out of the bath if I don’t like the book, so I have to have some kind of faith that it will be a good book. Hopefully it works that way for everyone else and I’m not a total weirdo for that (just my usual level of weirdo).

The oddest part of the book is that I think of Michael Fassbender as a synthetic (sorry, artificial person), so the section about his penis really threw me. I’ve never considered synthetics as having a penis. The things you learn in the bath!
