I have a bookmark in the novel "Peach" by Emma Glass. It's on my reading list for this year and one of the thinnest books I have read in a long time. The story is about the titular character recovering from a traumatic sexual assault. Should it be a good read, I'll be done by the end of the week.
I enjoyed every page of "The Shape of Water". You do not need to decide to read the book before watching the film. The book is much more fleshed out. Hilarious, descriptive and Zelda is a much better character in the book.
