One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating‘s christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny‘s mother, Beverly—thus setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families. #ikissedagirl #heatofjuly

BarbaraBB Somehow I had interpreted the kisser a woman but of course it can be a man as well! Great choice! 1y
Cinfhen I loved this book!! Have u read 1y

DivineDiana @BarbaraBB I did as well! But this book came to mind, and I thought why not! It is about kissing a girl! 😉 1y
Mdargusch Good one! 👍🏼 1y
DivineDiana @mdargusch Thank you! ❤️ 1y
SledgeReader @DivineDiana @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Mdargusch Loved this one! Have you read Bel Canto? Probably my favorite of hers. She‘s one of my go to authors - read everything she writes. Highly recommend Truth and Beauty. Consider visiting Patchett‘s bookstore #Parnassus if you are ever in the Nashville area. She‘s even got a location in the airport! 1y
Cinfhen I liked Bel Canto @SledgeReader but not as much as this one! 1y
DivineDiana Yes! And I absolutely loved it! 1y
BarbaraBB @SledgeReader I haven‘t read Bel Canto yet, even though I have a copy. I will get to it soon! 1y
SledgeReader @BarbaraBB Yay! Please let me know when you do. I‘d love to chat! 1y
BarbaraBB I will! 1y

According to this book many actresses in old Hollywood could say #ikissedagirl. I have not read this book yet. It could be crap. (Hmmm...now where did I put this book? I'll have to go looking for it.)

Cinfhen It sounds juicy 💋😁 1y
Sace @Cinfhen I'm kind of a sucker for old Hollywood gossip. 1y
vkois88 I feel like it's an understood thing in Hollywood (old & new) that you'll hook up with anyone... in those days it was more of an issue bc it wasn't acceptable, but I think it's always been the same. Sounds like a good book though 1y
BarbaraBB Sounds good! 1y
Sace @vkois88 I agree. I think it was much harder for the actors back then. 1y

Classic YA coming out novel, it's been burned, it's been banned, but most importantly it's been read.

#HeatOfJuly #IKissedAGirl I read this book earlier this year, an historical fictionalization of the friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt & her assistant Lorena Hickok. I‘m crazy about the cover ♥️While this was a quick and easy read, something was missing. A solid three star #BorrowNotBuy

GatheringBooks this has been on my radar for awhile now. sad to hear that it didn‘t live up to expectations 🤗 1y
Bloomingjen I agree with all of this 1y
Cinfhen Thanks @Bloomingjen it‘s still worth a read @GatheringBooks it‘s just not a MUST read 1y

#HeatOfJuly Day 10: The controversial #IKissedAGirl illustration of Chris Riddell of Gaiman‘s re-imagined Sleeping Beauty with a twist. A celebration of womanity – all the male characters are mere foils – the strength drawn from women‘s will – no matter the shades of sinister darkness which is always complemented by a sense of purpose. There is no helplessness, just a quiet biding of time. Link to Full review ⬇️

Even though Margot, the MC of this book, would rather say #IKissedaGirl, she has to sell her body to men she doesn‘t like, to keep her little sister from having to do the same. In a community where homosexuality is taboo, and where your family‘s needs are more important than your own, Margot struggles to find her place, and to find love 💔


Cinfhen I tried this book, it was too “heavy” for me at the time. 1y
LoverofLit @Cinfhen I'm so glad I found your comment after guiltily bailing on this book. My first bail in months, I found myself really sick to my stomach trying to finish this. Really heavy topic, though an important one! 8mo
Cinfhen That cover is SO deceiving @LoverofLit I just couldn‘t read it any longer, either!!! Don‘t feel guilty, books aren‘t meant to torture us🙁 8mo
