John & Jackie | TJ. Klune

Pickpick

I'm emotionally devastated after this trip down memory lane. Any previous claim of "I've never cried so much at a book before" has been officially withdrawn, as I read over half of John & Jackie through a sheen of tears (read: I ugly cried). Never before have I read such heart-wrenching narration, that had the power to consume me whole as Jackie recounts five key moments in his life with his husband, John, as he prepares to say goodbye forever ?.

2022 has been a rather marvellous book year for me!

I've discovered new favourite authors. Unearthed book series that have become lifelong obsessions. And one cannot forget the stand-alones that have found a permanent home in my heart.

⬆️ These were my absolute favourites ⬆️

1: Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin.
2: Rainbow Milk by Paul Mendez.
3: Into This River I Drown by TJ Klune.

My heart swelled with the PRIDE this book inspired, my eyes welling up more times than I can count at the stunning queer celebration that paraded through the streets, our eccentric family at the forefront. Corey/Kori, the inspirational hero/heroine of this story, grew-up across the span of these pages, and it was oh-so beautiful, playful, uproarious & moving. Bigender and enby characters shone like stars ✨️. Egg-tastic *snort* (inside joke!) 😂.

Until You | Tj Klune
post image

Knots are tied in this hoot of a novella. Love is in the air. Vows are exchanged and (much to Vince's delight) bawled over at the alter. Bachelor parties are fuelled with jäger and Sexy Paul makes an abrupt (and absolutely hilarious) appearance. From start to finish, Until You, is one big beautiful celebration that I was overjoyed to be apart of. The supporting characters are just as fabulous as the leading men. A story with family at it's core! ♡

With the spotlight trained on the fierce and fabulous Queen, Helena Handbasket, and her acerbic wit, the reader is captivated from the onset. Sandy/Helena is a fusion of hero/heroine, paper-pushing insurance claims advisor/vivacious drag queen. But when the make-up, falsies and sequins come off, so does the formidable armour, though the sassy-ripostes remain. A feat of intimacy and humour. A love story that is truly unforgettable. Divine! ♡ Xx

Where do I start? Do I hype up the absolute hilarity of this novel first, or the goo-goo romanticism that I couldn't help but adore? Gone are the cookie-cutter clichés usually attached to M/M lit relationships, beautiful & proudly queer from beginning to end. Paul's unique, blundering narration is wholly enjoyable, his awkward character totally relatable. He's practically a walking trope of sassy one-liners that never got old. Utterly hysterical!

"Indifference might not have the connotations of hate, but it could hurt just as badly."

~ Tell Me It's Real by TJ Klune.

This quote resonated with me so profoundly that I found myself re-reading it over and over again. It's a painful truth that should be nothing more than a lesson learnt. However, that doesn't seem to be the case as so many people bask in their privilege and are indifferent to anything that doesn't personally effect them.

I devoured this book with rapt veneration. This story is a testament to the human experience, painful & glorious, angsty to the point of it engulfing you like a physical presence that emanated from the page. The seductiveness of the river was contagiously palpable, the metaphor poignant. Devotion between a father & his son was beautiful, the grief causing your bones to ache. Divine intervention rouses love that chases away the dark. Exquisite! X

TheIntrovertedDodoBird @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope you enjoy it much as I did. Prepare to have your soul ripped to shreds!! I've never sobbed so much while reading a book. I'll keep a look out for your review to hear your thoughts on it ♡ Xx 2mo

Wow! I possess a prodigious amount of respect for everything this book stands for & represents. My heart ached with the delicate sensibilities that brought a beautiful potency to the prose, the candor concerning mental health issues & anxiety unembellished & heart rendering, though constructively empowering in a great many ways for people like me who struggle on a daily basis. Josy was a little pocket of demisexual sunshine. Hilarious & poignant ♡

It's been a breath of fresh air to read an asexual love story in a such an allonormative world (especially since I'm ace too). This soul-stirring story is centred around accepting your quirks. Loving your beautiful - sometimes warts and all - authentic self. Gus's & Casey's tenderness towards each other, I believe, will continue on into a ripe old age, the pair on twin rockers & reminiscing about monkey adventures & poodle prostitutes! LOVE! ♡ X

This book has been an all-purpose remedy to pep-up even my most melancholic of days. A frolicsome tale of the joy of friendship, hysterical to the very end & oh so endearing. The Grumpy/Sunshine trope is thrown into the mix when the Prince of Ice is bound to the frat boy King with a magical sash & the series of events that follow are uproarious & heartwarming in equal measure. But it's the two Best Friends 5Eva that will melt your heart. Magical ♡

I'm unequivocal in my declaration that The Tales of Verania rivals all fantasy escapades that are likely to occupy your shelves. This cosmic adventure concludes in style, with Klune's archetypal witty and riotous humor, interwoven with devastatingly faultless satirical prose. Good and evil clash in this epic showdown, endangering Sam's happily ever after when the shadows curl at his feet and his lightning-struck heart explodes a final time 🐲🦄 X

Oh my gods! This book gave me all the feels (or, how Sam would so eloquently put it, "gave me a heart boner"). I read two separate parts of this incredible adventure through a sheen of tears. This band of misfits never fail to rouse laughter, giggles, snorts & cackles. Good clashes against evil, bitter betrayals cut as deep as a blade, pasts are explored & destiny's are finally accepted. And still, friendship prevails! Beyond magical & hilarious!

Team Sam Mothercrackers! This merry band of misfits - a unicorn, half giant, a sex dependent dragon, posturing knight & a wizard with a destiny of dragons - set out on the best quest yet when Sam's estranged grandmother materialises out of nowhere & alters the course of his life completely, exposing secrets concerning two of Sam's favourite people. With a little help from his friends, Sam must gather the dragons of Verania. Absolutely hilarious! ♡

Oh my gods! A perfectly brewed concoction of fantasy & humour in one rib cracking novel that is guaranteed to leave you snorting. Fantasy tropes are tweaked & revitalised - I'm looking at you The Lucky Novice, Rainbow Pooping Unicorns & Bearded Mentors - yet remain unique. I'm pretty sure I belong in Verania, a kingdom of queer love, magic & delicious knights. Awesomely sarcastic, witty & dry, with a sprinkle (read: gigantic ton) of sex jokes! 🦄

The prospect of the upcoming film provoked me to pick up this novel, but I soon found myself growing tiresome of the quaint, over-sentimentality dispersed amongst the otherwise quite beautiful prose. Far too much is consumed by the prate of Marion, who irked me incredibly & felt underwhelmingly two-dimensional, leaving me detached during her narrative. The only tolerable character was Patrick, who at least succeeded in rousing sympathy. Tedious.

I'm channelling my inner Nicky when I say the final novel in this saga is RAD! I snorted with laughter more times than I can count, especially during the hilarious enema kit incident which left me in stitches 😂 (shout out to Aaron Bell - the best father any queer boy could ask for). The final showdown was spectacular. The joy and reminisce of that ending! I'm guilty of high-pitch squealing when a certain couple shared a special, adorable moment!

Is it totally dramatic to say that my whole life has lead up to the release of the final book in The Extraordinary Saga?

Rhetorical question, because it TOTALLY has!

Whoa! Nicky is back with a BANG in this epic sequel! This adorable, hysterical, neurodiverse MC has totally stolen my heart & I cannot reiterate enough that Nicky was extraordinary WAY before he became an Extraordinary with a capital E! There is no one in the whole wide world as hilarious as him. Gloomy days were made a whole lot brighter with Nick. If I could have fictional friends, I'd totally fangirl until I became a part of Team Pyro Storm! 🦸

'I cannot' describe how incredible this novel is. This is honestly one of the most original books I've ever had the pleasure of reading. This toaster with a heart of gold will become the sole occupant of your heart. Rib-cracking dead-pan humour is scattered throughout this book, along with endearing AI characters exploring their capacity of experiencing human emotions &, most unusually, entire chapters comprised in screenplay format. Must read! 🤖

To this very day, this quirky fable leaves me with a profound sense of inquietude. Gaiman dazzles with his hauntingly beautiful prose, deep-seated angsty theme & spine-tingling malaise. You'll sleepwalk your way through this book, transported into the unfathomable depths of Gaiman's brilliantly twisted imagination. Childhood is often penned as a beguiling, magical experience, but Gaiman defies this trope exquisitely. He's a bona fide genius!

Mind blown! Never before have I experienced such an evocative, hallucinatory, mind-altering literacy journey in my entire life. This book possessed such a profundity that couldn‘t help but question my own reality. Submerging myself into the almost sickening complexities of this book is something I'll never forget. From the get-go, there's an underlying unease about Amorea, because something can't possibly be THAT perfect without a catch! Bizarre!

I'll bet anything & everything that nobody has a grandmother as kooky & eccentric as Elsa does. Nor do they have one with as many fantastical stories to tell. This tale interweaves reality & fantasy &, more importantly, fantasy into reality, until the two worlds collide spectacularly and send us on an epic adventure. This plucky little protag & her loyal Wurse (mainly Wurse) are responsible for the endless amounts of tears I shed over this book ♡

LiteraryinLawrence I don‘t remember the exact plot of this one, just that it was a tear jerker and sort of magical/whimsical. 7mo

A beautiful, unembellished, warts-&-all tale of the perseverance & devotion of young Gilbert Grape, a man barely keeping his head above the metaphorical water of his small town life & burdened heavily beyond his years. Never before have I been acquainted with such a realistic collection of characters. I found myself feeling almost as though I was prying into the intimate, private thoughts of Gilbert. Gilbert & Arnie stole every piece of my heart ♡

This odd duck pecked herself a home in my heart (not literally - FYI, this book has absolutely nothing to do with ducks 😆). This journey & character metamorphosis will always remain special to me. I became Eleanor's personal cheerleader from the very first page, despite all of her faults, but most importantly because of her quirks & eccentricities & social awkwardness (which we both share). A story with friendship and melancholy at its heart ♡ Xx

I'm not a love letter sort of girl, but I could definitely write one for my love of this book! Even many months after reading this delight, I'm itching to check in on these amazing characters - the amateurish bungling bankrobber & the eight hilarious (sometimes crotchety) side kicks that stole my heart so fiercely (is a phone call too much to ask for?). A guessing game with twists & turns. Lots of laughs along the way - typical Fredrik Backman ♡

Easily the best novel to come out of 2021! A mesmerising, swoon-worthy & winsome tale of life and death & everything in between. Heart-warming & heart breaking in equal measure.

I simply can't chose my favourite between them. They're both such beautiful stories! Cerulean Sea was my first introduction to Klune and I've even obsessed ever since! I'm slowly devouring all of his books 😍 Xx 7mo

A Long Way Down | Nick Hornby

Mehso-so

Some say coincidence - but I might go as far as to say fate, brought this unlikely bunch of characters together, while they're teetering over the edge of a fifteen-story high tower block on New Year's Eve. Instead of leaping to their doom, Martin, Maureen, JJ & Jess trudge back down having formed a bizarre pact. Hornby delivers a Breakfast Club -esque journey, exploring four various narratives. A memorable dark comedy. A little lacking in parts.
