New Camelot Trilogy

Whoa boy, this book series.  Sierra Simone has become my go-to for well-written erotica and this book didn’t disappoint if you are looking for something very, very sexy. If you are looking for a super dramatic, smut filled romance, look no further.  However, by book 3, I was beginning to tire of all the sex and needed some more story.  I would recommend this series but didn’t feel the need for it to go on as long as it did.

Gender Queer

As a librarian and avid reader, I hear the phrase “this is an important book” a lot.  And while it’s true that there are many “important” books out there, sometimes these books are tough to read.  Whether it’s the subject matter or the length or the writing style, “important” books sometimes sit on my shelf, unread.  Gender Queer is an “important” book that is smart and accessible and a title that I would recommend to everyone, regardless of how they identify.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Oh Evelyn Hugo, I adore you.  For a while now, I have had friends whose book tastes I trust tell me that I needed to read “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.”   So when my book club chose it for their monthly read, I was excited to finally have a reason to pick it up.   I expected a quick, light read about a Hollywood starlet and her various relationships and scandals.  What I didn’t expect was a heart-breaking, humorous, intriguing story that left me thinking about it for days after I had finished.  I cannot recommend this book enough.

Little Fish

This book was on my radar because I was looking for something to meet a reading challenge prompt of: a novel by a Trans or non-binary author.   Thanks to Goodreads, I found this book and saw the amazing reviews it had.  It ended up being a tough, emotional, absorbing look at what it’s like to be Trans in the world today.  I would highly recommend it.

Moonstruck, Vol. 1: Magic to Brew v

Werewolves?  Baristas? Magic? Gay best friend? Young Adult?  I had been wanting to read Moonstruck for a while, ever since I heard about it really, because of all the awesome things I had heard about it and the themes it explored.   While I am glad I finally got to experience, I found that the idea and concept turned out better than the reality.  I thought it was fun and a quick read but ultimately wanted more.

The Prince and the Dressmaker

This graphic novel was beautifully drawn and had an amazing story to match. I am SO here for teen and young adult books that feature characters from different backgrounds and different lifestyles.  What I liked about this book was the level of acceptance that was shown to the Prince and the message that everyone is unique and that’s ok.  The author, Jen Wang, does a great job of sending a message without being preachy.

Check, Please!

Well, this was one of the cutest comics I have ever read.  I saw this comic pop up on a few lists of “must reads” and then it was discussed in a meeting I had with other librarians so I knew I had to read it.  What I had heard was basically this: it’s about a college hockey player, who used to be a figure skater, and who likes to bake pies. Based on that description, how could I not pick this up??  If I could, this review would just be me saying over and over again “oh my gosh, this is so cute” and “I am so in love with Bitty” and “I can’t take how amazing this comic is…” suffice to say, this book exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it.
