How I adored this book! I am not the intended audience for Aiden Thomas’s book but still found myself being swept up in his tale of young people searching for the place they belong and fighting for the respect they deserve.

This book is especially important for young trans people who may be struggling to find acceptance among their family and friends. I highly recommend this book.Continue reading “Cemetery Boys”

Whenever I read her books, I think “this is how books should be written.” The problem with “The Glass Hotel” is not really anything that can be helped…it’s the follow up to “Station Eleven,” a book that is in my top ten books of all time and won numerous literary awards. Despite not quite reaching “Station Eleven” heights, it was still a mesmerizing, haunting tale that I would recommend.
