When I first heard of this book, I was intrigued immediately. It sounded like something I would pick up but.. on the other hand, it also sounded like something I wouldn't pick up - if you get what I mean. The LGBTQIA+ part of this novel immediately spoke to me, but I wasn't really sure about the homophobic impression I got from the blurb. I'm glad I ended up requesting this ARC anyway because.. I don't regret reading The Lion Tamer Who Lost one bit!
When I participated in Liza's TBR Jar Readathon, the second book I pulled out of my jar was I Was Born For This. It had been on my TBR for quite a while since the author is coming to YALC and it was one of the books that caught my interest immediately. I finally got to read it - and in time for YALC at that!
I feel like I pretty much have to point out how I loved Queens of Geek and how I seriously could not wait to read The Brightsiders as soon as I found out about it. Granted, it took me a bit before I picked it up, but I did! And... Here's my review!
Set in France, this is a beautiful story about the importance of family: You, Me, Everything by Catherine Isaac.
