I rarely share reviews on Kindle freebies, but this time is different because I simply NEEDED to share! Read my review to find out why!
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!
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.
Seeing the cover of this book, I immediately knew I was going to love it. I just had to love it - there was no way I would have it disappoint me. So, what I'm basically saying is that this book had a whole lot to live up to without me having read the blurb at that point. I couldn't imagine a story with transgender rep being anything but amazing and I was right! Or, at least I was until I'd finished the book and decided to read some own-voice reviews...
As someone identifying as bisexual, it's important for me to read more unknown LGBTQIA+-books as well. One of those books is You're You by Mette Bach. This isn't just an ordinary contemporary though, so let's dive into my review!
