She Gets The Girl | Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick | Book Review

She Gets The Girl follows an old school formula and it results in a wonderful gem of a storyline. The old school formula in this case was “extrovert flirt tries to teach introverted new lesbian how to get the girl.” Of course along the way some feelings emerge forcing each character to reevaluate what theyContinue reading “She Gets The Girl | Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick | Book Review”

Anything But Fine | Tobias Madden | Audiobook Review

Why did I listen to Anything But Fine? Anything But Fine was available for review on Netgalley. I was immediately intrigued by the premise and of the main character being an injured male ballerina. I also could tell that this was going to be an emotional read but I was hoping for a bit ofContinue reading “Anything But Fine | Tobias Madden | Audiobook Review”

The One True Me and You | Remi K. England | Book Review

The One True Me and You is a debut young adult novel that has non-binary representation. As soon as I read the premise, I knew I had to read it.

England | Book Review”

Saturday Movie Review: The Prom

I saw the original cast of The Prom on Broadway and loved it. I had been hearing bits and pieces about the show and how it was loosely based on the 2010 prom controversy in Fulton, Mississippi where prom was canceled after a lesbian wanted to bring her girlfriend. I knew I wanted to checkContinue reading “Saturday Movie Review: The Prom”

The Charm Offensive | Alison Cochrun | Book Review

The Charm Offensive takes the reality show idea and makes it original and heartwarming. What starts out as a man trying to be a prince and find true love with a woman turns into so much more. I was completely hooked on the characters, the experiences they were going through, and their emotions. So manyContinue reading “The Charm Offensive | Alison Cochrun | Book Review”

Love and Other Natural Disasters | Misa Sugiura | Book Review

Love and Other Natural Disasters was a book that was easy to get into. From the beginning, I could tell that it was going to be set up as a romantic comedy. Unfortunately, there were times when the comedy felt more cringeworthy than romantic comedy. The main character would do or say something that wasContinue reading “Love and Other Natural Disasters | Misa Sugiura | Book Review”
