For those that read Casey McQuiston’s first book “Red, White, and Royal Blue” and loved it just like me, you may have been worried that her follow up wouldn’t capture the charm and joy and romance of that story. Fear not. If anything, “One Last Stop” manages to take everything I loved about that first book and take it one step further, showing McQuiston’s growth as an author and her understanding of people’s relationships with romantic partners as well as friends and family. I read this book with a smile on my face the entire time and I think everyone will enjoy this one.Continue reading “One Last Stop”
Superheroes? Check. Evil Villains? Check. Erotic sex? Check. This graphic novel is exactly what you think it would be…in a good way. This was a fun read that I would recommend to superhero fans and romance fans.Continue reading “Super Fun Sexy Times”
Oh, how I wanted to love this book. I had high hopes for Berkley’s first F/F romance and the buzz around this book before release was high. While the start was strong, the middle dragged, and the ending felt rushed. What could have been a sweet, sexy romance fell flat.
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.
I chose this book for one of my reading challenges this year based on nothing more than the good reviews it was receiving. I didn’t know much about it and was hoping that I wouldn’t be disappointed. Wow, was this a good book and I am so glad that I read it. I have already recommended it to a few friends and am eager to hear what they think.
I read this book because I am attending a meeting for librarians to discuss LGBTQ+ books and this one was on a list of fiction that features transgender characters. I enjoyed this book and feel like it would be a great read for anyone who is transgender, exploring their identity, or cisgender and who wants to learn about the experiences of transgender people through the story of Grayson and Wyatt.
