November #doublespin finished! @TheAromaofBooks
This was a cute romance set in a British baking competition. Rosaline is a single mum whose life plan shifted when she got pregnant at 19 and now is trying to follow a new path with her love of baking. She struggles with confidence but soon finds friends and a possible love interest within the contestants. As a bisexual woman, she deals with many stereotypes and gaslighting about her life choices

I finished 13 print books in November, put one in hibernation, and read my four short stories. Good month despite my end-of-year slowdown! At the end of the month, I was purposefully avoiding getting a bingo. 🤣 #BookspinBingo

A novella set in the Heartstopper universe. Christmas day from several different perspectives, everyone wants the day to be normal but they don't know what that is or how to deal with the fact that it won't be the same. Very hopeful and uplifting book.

Fitz looks pissed at being used as a prop 😂

I liked the first book a lot, and kind of wish they'd just left it as a standalone. This one felt very repetitive and even cringey at times. The audiobook is read by Lin Manuel Miranda, which I did enjoy.

“Everybody subsequently agreed that the news media should have offered better coverage of the epidemic much earlier, and that the federal government should have done much, much more. By the time everyone agreed to this however it was too late. Instead people died. Tens of thousands of them.”

Hard hitting, comprehensive & tragic. Over 600 pages but it read fast.

Read for #Booked2022 - About the AIDS epidemic. Also works for #NonfictionNovember

Amiable Oh, this book is SOO good. I recommend to everyone I can. 11h

This debut YA novel is a beautifully written, atmospheric look at life in small town Georgia. It is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl and deals with racism, anti-LGBTQIA+ sentiments and family secrets. While it had some dark moments, there is also a lot of humour and a teenage romance. I did have a small quibble with the ending and wished for more detail about the final reveal, but I still really enjoyed the book. 4.5/5 stars
