Spin Me Right Round | David Valdes | Book Review

As I was reading Spin Me Right Round, I couldn’t help but feel like it was a gay twist on the classic movie trilogy Back to the Future. In present day, Luis is openly gay in an environment that may be progressive but not always fully accepting. The majority reason for this stems from anContinue reading “Spin Me Right Round | David Valdes | Book Review”

The Edge of Summer | Erica George | Book Review

I read Erica George’s debut Words Composed of Sea and Sky and found a strong new voice of young adult stories. When I saw her sophomore book The Edge of Summer on Netgalley, I was quick to request it. Once again, the setting is Cape Cod and this time around there is a strong focusContinue reading “The Edge of Summer | Erica George | Book Review”

Home Field Advantage | Dahlia Adler | Audiobook Review

Why did I listen to Home Field Advantage? Home Field Advantage caught my attention from the moment I first read the synopsis. LGBTQIA+ romance? Sports romance? Secret dating? It sounded exactly what I needed. Plus, it was being released during Pride Month! So, it wasn’t very hard for me to click request on Netgalley, andContinue reading “Home Field Advantage | Dahlia Adler | Audiobook Review”

Mark My Words | Muhammad Khan | Book Review

Mark My Words is a face paced read which shines a strong light on social inequality within the privileged grammar school. Previously there were two schools in Enley – Minerva (the privileged private grammer school) and Bodley (the more racially diverse public school). Bodley is located in a more run-down part of town. When theContinue reading “Mark My Words | Muhammad Khan | Book Review”

A Show For Two | Tashie Bhuiyan | Book Review

I’ll be honest, I’ve been siting on writing this review for A Show For Two. I had alot of mixed feelings with this one. The enemies to lovers romance was so good! Unfortunately, the other elements within the story left me feeling unsettled. When Mina and Emmit first met, they immediately clash. In fact, MinaContinue reading “A Show For Two | Tashie Bhuiyan | Book Review”

When You Call My Name | Tucker Shaw | Book Review

When You Call My Name honestly broke me and slowly tried to put me together again. This is a beautiful beautiful story. It is set during the 1980s and 1990s and is centered around the HIV/AIDS epidemic. No book with this as it’s central premise is going to be happy but, this one has somehowContinue reading “When You Call My Name | Tucker Shaw | Book Review”

This May End Badly | Samantha Markum | Book Review

This May End Badly is such a fun young adult novel. There is a prank war, a fake relationship, strong friendships, and some major character growth along the way. I honestly devoured this book.

Jagged Little Pill | Eric Smith | Book Review

As a child of the 90’s, I have very strong memories of the songs from Alanis Morrissette’s smash record Jagged Little Pill. I remember the music video with Alanis singing Ironic in her car. I also remember Alanis in the rooftop that eventually led to a pie fight in You Learn. And I may haveContinue reading “Jagged Little Pill | Eric Smith | 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”
