Check out this magical tree I saw while hiking today and listening to Ann Mcman's Jericho. This book is taking me forever. The slo-o-o-west of slow burns 🔥 #lesfic #lesbianromance

One downside of reading on my Kindle is missing out on gorgeous physical editions like the beauty above ?????

Really enjoyed Cameron's story. Yeah, the pace is a little off but it's easy to overlook. Evocation of time & place is very good. The issues raised are done with sensitivity & sass and Cam is relatable & believable. The "pray away the gay" section is thought provoking and infuriating. Cont. in comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi Cont. from above. Didn't like the 'dead parents' schtick - don't think the story needed it & I personally have a real problem with this trope. Also I disliked the ending - the resolution was not the one I'd been hankering after. Still a very good read with lots to unpack. 10h

This one has all the feels! Pretty hard hitting for a YA book, tackling handicapping injury, addiction, same sex attraction, loss, and more all wrapped up in a double mystery. The mystery wasn't the most astounding, but when coupled with the rest this was a strong piece of fiction (IMO). Would definitely read more by this author.

GypsyKat Sounds really good! 23h

The Music of What Happens | Bill Konigsberg

Bill Konigsberg has written another realistic and relevant YA book. This one is more intense in that it addresses more serious issues, but is also relatable by teens given the realistic dialogue between characters. A book I will highly recommend to my more mature high school students. I love the title too.

Chronicling the lives of a group of men at the height of the AIDS epidemic in the 80s this book slowly breaks your heart, over and over again. These characters may have been fictional but their story was all too real, and that is what leaves me haunted.

Devastating.

When a book makes ypu tear up in your car on the way to work, you know it is a good one. This book felt like a squeeze to the heart and a big hug all in one. It was sweet, diverse, sad at times, and fun at times. Lily and Dunkin felt, to me, like great representations of a transcender child and a child with mental illness in the form of bipolar disorder.

This was a great book, story and art. The illustrations were amazing throughout. I really really liked seeing the relationship bloom between Ari and Hector (meaning the flowers on the pages when their relationship grew and grew). Ari was a little annoying at first but he eventually grew on me. Super cute ending!

The second volume in this charming series about high school fencing moved the plot along, but not enough scenes between the leads. More angst please! Can‘t wait for volume 3.

I read this as part of this weeks Epic Reads book challenge in which we are to read a book with a number in the title. It sort of left me with, Meh. It‘s ok, but always like to break out and read book challenges reads.
