Oh, I really felt for the narrator in this one. You know from the start that the relationship isn't gonna work out, but her struggle to accept that the way she and her girlfriend love each other isnt enough and isn't right is so raw and real. #yalit #novelsinverse

Sorry I‘ve been so absent, Litsy! I need to get back to posting all the time. I did create a #BookTok the other weekend, and I brought back my #SundaysInBedWith meme. This morning I‘m spending time with the tagged book because it‘s this month‘s Fountain of Youth book club pick, so l‘ll be leading a discussion on it later this morning. I liked it, even more after reading the author‘s note at the end.

Nothing Burns as Bright as You is a novel written in verse about an all- consuming, destructive teenage love between two queer girls. It is beautifully written and begs to be read aloud. I had some difficulty with being sure whose perspective I was reading from at times. The story was very relatable in the intensity of the adolescent fire and water relationship. I quite enjoyed it.

What I liked: the two girls not having names, being anonymous, the ending.

What I struggled with: it‘s told in verse (sorry 🤷🏻‍♀️), and at times I felt like it switched narrators, but that could just be me.

Highlighted text says, "Little girls bodies are war zones with no allies. And women are made of whatever survives."
Oof, Ashley Woodfolk is so great at describing the push pull of relationships that feel good even as they kick you off kilter and spiral in ways that may not be good. A novel in verse about a first love that makes you reckless in so many ways.

I loved this book. It‘s a novel in verse about 2 girls who are best friends that have turned into something a bit more. First loves, toxic relationships, and beautiful prose - I loved it all. This tarot spread appears within the story and I couldn‘t resist included it with the photo ❤️❤️❤️ this book comes out April 5th . If you preorder then you can get 6 art prints with quotes from the novel. Check the authors IG for details
