Part two of a queer science ficion duology - and it's time to review it! Spoilers for the first one. And another spoiler: I liked it better than the first book too!
Grief is hard to read about, even more so if it's the loss of a sibling. But there's so much more to this story than just that which makes it worth reading even more so. Definitely one to pick up! But.. read my review first maybe?
I'm naturally drawn to books with queer rep but Girl Mans Up hit another cord because.. some parts sounded so very familiar to twelve-to-twenty-four year old me. On top of that, there's other tough subjects and it's an overall.. amazing book that definitely left its mark on me.
The idea of someone disappearing once their online personality has been erased is very intriguing, especially since so many of us have an enormous social life online. Even I have to admit that most of my social activities occur in the bookish community, rather than in real life. So, of course, the concept of this book sounded very interesting.
I honestly cannot believe I waited this long to read The Upside of Unrequited. It's not like I didn't want to read it, I simply didn't get around to it? Other books kept distracting me and now I'm blaming all those books for keeping me from this precious, little gem. I fell in love, you guys.
I read some short books lately, so I decided to do another bunch of mini reviews! Here are my short reviews on The Last Train, Fawn and A Holiday by Gaslight!
I have a thing for pirates. Ever since Jack Sparrow, I am simply sold on any pirate-related movie, series or book. So, of course, I needed to read The Unbinding of Mary Reade but... Yeah, let's just dive into this review.
