Two queer authors got together and decided to write a queer retelling of King Arthur - science fiction-style! Is it worth it? YES, YES AND YES.
I was totally in the mood for a whimsical, circus-y setting and was told Daughter of the Burning City would deliver on that front. Unfortunately.. there were definitely some downsides to this novel..
Looking back on 2018, I read a whole lot.. But what are the best ten contemporary books I read? Find out here!
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.
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?
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.
