The first-person plural narration in this book was certainly a choice, and sometimes it felt like Michelle and James were having incredibly deep conversations for being literally in the middle of real life Jumanji, but I really enjoyed their characters and the glimpses into so many different lives, so. If you want something different, give this a go! #yalit

So enjoyable! I loved Hunter and really felt for his struggle for authenticity and some room to breathe, and I appreciated the focus on intersectionality. Somewhat reminiscent of Check, Please, which is an absolute bonus. #yalit

A truly excellent thrill ride. Not sure I loved the denouement, but the open ending was fun, and I was fully immersed in the setting. #yathriller #yalit

Team Todd or Team Jeffrey? That‘s really the dilemma of this whole book. Elizabeth as a character needs a shakeup, so Todd Wilkins moves back to Sweet Valley. Some folks will commiserate with her dilemma, and others will think her conflicts to be very out of character. 3 star rating for me on Goodreads.
Which team are you on? 😉

It could be because I was just TEARING through this book, but I felt like some of the emotional beats shifted awfully quickly. It's probably how people actually felt under communism, tho, and I was 1000% invested regardless. Cristian and Liliana have my whole heart. #yalit #yahistoricalfiction

I am SCREECHING about how much I love Barrett and Miles!!! Who knew being stuck in a time loop could be so good for your personal development and also your love life? This is only my second RLS book, but she's an auto-read for me now. #yalit #yascifi #yaromance

Desha I love RLS so much! I will have to read this one too! 😊 2w
kissmehardy @Desha The only other one I've read is Today Tonight Tomorrow, but SYY met my high expectations from it! 2w
Desha @kissmehardy That‘s good to know! 👍🏻📚💛 2w

I just loved this book. Dani and Prince both go on such moving journeys, and the constant reminders of the power of community - and very specifically Black community - were so important and well-crafted. And the romance was excellent too! #yalit #yaromance

Adored the lyrical prose, the casual queerness, and the exploration of a moment in history I knew nothing about. The fantastical elements were an excellent touch. #yalit #historicalfiction #magicalrealism

A quick read - quite enjoyable, but predictable and rather boring. Not my favorite :)
