As soon as i saw this book announced way back in 2018, i knew i had to read it. Girl in a hot dog costume on the front cover AND LGBTQ+ rep? Count me in. I’ve become quite fond of the niche market of books based in theme parks/arcades or festivals, so this was right up my street.

I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!

Jack Of Hearts (And Other Parts) by L.C. Rosen has been on my TBR for quite some time now. It was first released in the U.S. and took it’s sweet time to be picked up over in the U.K. So admittedly, i was impatient by the time its February release came around.

I’d been hearing really mixed things about Dumplin’ recently. The book has been out for some time, and honestly, it’s been on my shelf for a few years now, but nothing was making me want to pick it up. After the mixed reviews, i had no idea what to think. Luckily, with the release of the Netflix movie, i decided to pick it up, and i absolutely adored it.

Our LGBTQ+ Book Club pick a few months ago was Ramona Blue. It’s been on my shelf for a few months now and i had been very excited about getting around to it, luckily so was everyone at book club! I’ve also had Dumplin’ on my shelves for a while, maybe this was the push i need to read everything else Julie has written.

Noah Could Never by Simon James Green

Noah Can’t Even was one of my few five star books of 2017, and i absolutely adored it. It has a laugh out loud moment on every page and Simon writes a tragic teenager perfectly. I was hoping i’d find Noah Could Never to be exactly the same. Thank God i wasn’t disappointed.
