I’d first heard of Rosie Loves Jack at YALC last year, where Osborne publishing were pushing the release of it. I had hyped it up a lot since i’d heard some pretty great things, along with the amount of backing it had for a new author and contemporary novel. I sort of wish i hadn’t hyped it up in my head as much as i did.
*The book discussed in this post has been gifted by Harper Teen*
Months ago when this book was announced, admittedly i only checked it out because of the stunning cover it has. It’s absolutely beautiful and once i found out what it was about, it seemed right up my street. I was lucky enough that Harper Teen gifted me some copies for myself and to share out to the bloggers that come to our LGBTQ+ book club!
I picked up Gracefully Grayson last year once we started to up our game with our LGBTQ+ Book Club. I figured at some point that the day would come when we wanted a trangender representative book – although that day has come and gone, we didn’t read Gracefully Grayson, so i picked it up myself.
*A big thanks to a pal Kimi for letting me read her advanced copy of this book!*
For any of you who are new around here, i absolutely adore the entire Fletcher family. Every single one of them. Having read every book that Tom and Giovanna have released separately now, i thought that Eve Of Man would be my absolute dream book. I wish i hadn’t have found it so ‘meh’.
*I received a copy of Sam and Ilsa’s Last Hurrah in exchange for an honest review*
I’ve been excited for this book to be released for a while, as many of you may know, i absolutely adore David Levithan and his co-written books with Rachel Cohn are always an easy read with wonderful characters. I’m very happy to say that this one was no different.
I read Simon Vs The Homosapian Agenda last year, and with the release of Love, Simon the movie this year, i figured it was about time i dipped in to Becky Albertalli’s second novel. I enjoyed Simon Vs The Homosapian Agenda but it didn’t thrill me as much i had hoped, actually, i don’t remember much of the novel at all.
