It’s a fucking innuendo, really. All the puns intended. 😅 So you might like to think this just meant I spent all my time outside of work reading the book. No. I didn’t finish it faster. I had lots of things I needed to get done, lots of things I failed to get done, and […]Continue reading "“Georgia Peaches” and my low-key favorite concept photography"
It is quite timely that I would be finishing this book today, one month after a major event in my life — but also on the last day (as far as I know, and as far as I hope) of my physical therapy. I think this is what’s called happenstance, because it’s coincidental, but I […]Continue reading "Annie on My Mind // a soft classic lesbian romance"
Monday’s Not Coming sucked me in and had me reeling the entire time. Truth: I totally turned the book over and skimmed the last few chapters to brace myself because, like, that’s what I need to survive certain stories sometimes. Like, I almost always look up TV spoilers to prepare myself emotionally and mentally for […]Continue reading "Monday’s Not Coming // missing child mystery"
Braveness is typically associated with people who show no fear and walk straight into danger. Protagonist Dahlia 16 spends more time running from danger than actually facing it. She’s no Katniss or televised Clarke Griffin. She’s not even a Sarah Manning (Orphan Black). The title is a reference to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. I […]Continue reading "Brave New Girl // except she’s not so brave"
Famous in Love is, without a doubt, a complete train wreck. All the issues I’ve with young adult fiction — generally speaking? They exist, inside this book! I never thought such a thing possible, but alas…it has happened. Let me break it down for you: the recipe to get me to dislike a book. 1. […]Continue reading "Famous in Love // the epitome of everything I loathe about YA"
I finished a book trilogy — the first novel trilogy I’ve completed. It’s such a Big Deal I’ve brought in the first-letter drop-cap class (albeit visible only with wider screens). A Name Unknown reeled me in, even though I disliked White’s writing style. A Song Unheard proved White’s storytelling and writing style are two different […]Continue reading "An Hour Unspent // the end of the Shadows Over England trilogy"
I found “Time of Grace” on Amazon, for 99 cents, via BookBub. The cover wasn’t particularly tantalizing, but the idea of a historical romance between two women reeled me in. I seldom see historical romances featuring women-loving-women (WLW) characters, so I decided to give it a shot. The majority of the lesbian romance books available […]Continue reading "Time of Grace // bittersweet lesbian romance set in the 1920s"
I wasn’t expecting anything going into “A Throne for Sisters”, aside from a full pilot novel. Instead, I found a pilot novel for a series compiled of several books with similar page counts, which I surmise are executed akin to this one: ending right at the climax, rather than containing a full story. And that’s […]Continue reading "A Throne for Sisters // great idea, inconsistent plot"
