Predictable but cute.
Publisher First Second has been putting out some excellent LGBTQ+ 🏳️🌈 content, and Bloom is no exception.
Yes, Ari can be teen angsty and whiny at times, but I can really empathize with his situation. From an immigrant Greek family that can‘t afford to send him to college, Ari struggles to find his way post-high school graduation.
A sweet, slow-burn summer romance set in a MD 🏖 town that I highly recommend! Plus ALL the baked goods! 🧁🥖
Where are my Chunkster Challengers? Time to check in for #ChunksterChallenge2020 !
(I know it‘s a few days short of two weeks – it‘s just easier for me to plan from weekend to weekend… )
Progress report: I am on page 235 of 1,024.
How are you guys doing?
Oh, just finished this ever so beautiful book.
There were a few funny lines in this book, as always in Tyler's writing, but as I listened to most of it on audio I didn't bother writing any down. I'm seeing the importance of noting down quotes from a book as its doubtful you will easily come across them again. It's just that stopping reading to do this spoils the flow.
Here is a quote from the near end of the book that I thought was amusing.
First of all, I know I'm a bit slow on the mark, but Woo Hoo for Pic Collage!
Secondly, I've just unearthed quite a collection of my mums books, books she had on her shelf when I was a kid. I will have to post some of the awesome, vintage, 50's & 60's covers one day!
And thirdly, as I unearth my Mothers books onto my own shelf, the tagged book speaks of children having to sort thru & throw away parents belongings after passing...lessons for me???
