Book Haul from yesterday‘s Boston Book Festival- covers
Looks interesting. Gonna try it
I finished HOT DOG GIRL on my #audiowalk, and it‘s another of my qualified picks. It‘s pretty cute and I really liked where the relationships ended up, but I found the middle SO frustrating. Lou‘s awful in such an oblivious way that I honestly couldn‘t hope she‘d get together with anyone, because I wouldn‘t wish her on either love interest. If I hadn‘t enjoyed Nick and Seeley in the final scenes, it would‘ve been a So-So.
Sock progress! I can‘t properly position it on my foot because of where the needles are, but this gives you an idea of the pattern. #audioknitting
Guess who burnt their bottom lip checking to see if their zucchini risotto was fit for consumption?
(The verdict: it‘s nice and vegetably, with a bit of a kick from the Cajun seasoning I added to the broth. Definitely something I‘ll make again.)
The book‘s still cute, too. A little Teen Issues in feel, but I‘m in one of those moods where I can deal with that. #audiocooking
I switched to HOT DOG GIRL for my afternoon #audiowalk, and it‘s cute so far. I think I‘m gonna stick with it instead of rereading DEARLY, DEPARTED.
You‘ll be unsurprised to learn this sky dumped a bunch of rain on me and I had to rush into the nearest Shoppers. I looked at EVERY SINGLE THING in the skincare department while I waited for the world to dry out again.
Such a cute sweet #queer rom com! #Bisexual Elouise lives in a small town that revolves around an old nostalgic amusement where all the teens have summer jobs. Teens include her crush Nick, her lesbian BFF Seeley, and Jessa the park princess / Nick's gf. Elouise is trying one last time to get Nick's attention and to save the park when she learns it's being closed. Including fake dating Seeley. A bit melodramatic and angsty, but to be expected?
So are the two queer girl BFFs who have now entered a fake relationship gonna fall for each other?? This is a genuine question I don't know which way this love square (is that the term for a love triangle with four people?) is gonna go! #QueerBooks #BisexualBooks #GayYA #LGBTQBooks
I will start by saying that this book redeemed itself a bit towards the end, even though I predicted most of what happened pretty early on. I just couldn‘t convince myself to root for Elouise- she came off as super selfish and inconsiderate. It wasn‘t a horrible book, but I didn‘t like it nearly as much as I‘d hoped.
A cute little YA book. I suspected the ending pretty early, but it still put a smile on my face. A bunch of imperfect teens working at an amusement park make a mess of their lives. Especially Lou who has an epic crush on one of the diving pirates &decides pretending to date her bff is the solution. Lou could be a frustrating mc but she grew a lot in ways that felt authentic. I think Becky Albertalli fans will especially enjoy the snark and story.

Mini library haul. They didn't have any of the books I was looking for, but these have been on my tbr and there's just no leaving a library empty handed
The best part about this book is the side characters, who were great. Also, there is decent bisexuality rep in the main character. It is a romance and does include a fake relationship. It was cute, but the naivety of the main character and the shitty choices she made stopped this from being a great book. Read as an #audiobook via #scribd
I am so behind on my reviews! Loved this one. Coming of age story with a great setting and fun characters. I would love to see this made into a movie. I think most people can relate to being the Hot Dog Girl instead of the Princess. Highly recommend if you enjoyed Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
#audiopainting the upstairs hallway. Loving this book so far!
I finally finished a book this week and it feels so good! Lou is working at Magic Castle Playland again this summer and she can't wait to find out what she is going to be doing. She isn't so happy to find out that she is going to be the Hot Dog girl again this year. She really wants to win the heart of Nick and she doesn't know how too. When she fakes a relationship with her best friend Seeley, she doesn't plan on is falling for her 👇🏻
I have been in a bit of a reading funk the past couple days so I am hoping that these two books that I have been waiting to read is enough to pull me out of it!
Some awesome YA books coming out this spring to add to your TBR
