I've had this one on my TBR for quite some time now and the reason I got a copy should be fairly clear to anyone knowing me. I'm a sucker for baking - even though it's been a while since I made cupcakes! A book like this? With a baking competition mentioned? Consider me done for!
Contemporary and LGBTQIA+? I could not resist - and I don't think any of you would expect me to either. The synopsis itself intrigued me as well but did this novel gave me everything I hoped for?
My fifth DNF ever since starting my blog - which is over one and a half year ago. I'd say that isn't all that bad but.. it's never fun to put a book on the DNF-shelf, right? Especially since I usually tell myself to read at least 100 pages before deciding to do so. With Oliver and Erica I didn't even make it to that mark. Why? Well, find out here.
At the start of the year, I read Dear Martin by Nic Stone and rated it 4,5 cupcakes so you can say I was quite excited to hear about her new novel. Not to mention there'd be queer characters. I was sold, needed it, requested it and.. by some amazing miracle actually got my hands on an eARC?! And then I finished it and it all came crashing down.
I read this novel back in August, so to say I've been sitting on it for a while is an understatement. With it's release being upon us, it was definitely time to share this little diamond with all of you. As you know, I do like reading romance once in a while, and this is one of those books that simply intrigued me right from the start. Romance in December? I'm a sucker for that! But... am I a sucker for One Day in December as well?
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!
Fangirl has been on my TBR for ages - ages, I tell you! The moment I knew fan-fiction was involved, I just had to get myself a copy. I used to read a lot of fan-fiction myself years and years ago. Seeing it incorporated in a book.. Well, let's just say I was curious to see how it would play out.
