Book Review: If I Had Your Face

It is so different and engaging and even though Cha doesn’t go into a lot of depth about her subjects, she does raise interesting subjects that warrant reflection and consideration. This is the sort of book that makes you want to do research and find a nonfiction book about the same subject matter.

Book Review: Two Boys Kissing

The schtick of the chorus works better at the end than the beginning and while I appreciate wheat Levithan is doing, and I think he does it well, it is still a lot and it makes the book sadder and more fraught than his other works.

Book Review: They Both Die At The End

The book manages to evoke crushing despair while still being a beautiful love story… because it is… it is a beautiful love story, not just between the two boys, but a love story about life and how we need to suck the joy from our lives with every damn breath we are privileged to get to take. 

Book Review: Song of Achilles

This book has stuff for everyone… it is not just a “gay” book even though, yes, it is hella gay. I would highly recommend it for the story, the writing, and the universal truths. And again… That ending… /chef’s kiss. 

Book Review: This Is How You Lose The Time War

It’s still #Pride month and I am still reading queer literature to celebrate. Back to the comforting well of speculative fiction… and unlike my last foray into that land, this time I was very glad for the journey.

Book Review: When Katie Met Cassidy

Take out the very superficial puzzlement about identity that one character *almost* has, and this is a very tired, very cliche, very poorly written book about two people falling for one another in the most boring ways possible.
