A showstopping debut!! I absolutely loved this story about two queer siblings and their eccentric Māori-Russian-Catalonian family. It‘s laugh out loud throughout but also makes you cry and think. Reilly makes it look effortless. I loved the characters fiercely and felt so moved by the book's insights into family, parenting, queerness, and cultural identity. These wonderful weirdos will live on in my mind like real people for a long time.

TrishB I‘ve just finished it. ❤️ amazing. 2w

Onto another #audiobook to keep me awake and occupied while breastfeeding my newborn!

I'd have a crush on the kingdom's only lady knight too if I were Gwendolyn! This is interesting so far although I'm a little iffy on the voice actor for Arthur; hopefully he wins me over. The actor for Gwen is great.

This queer horror novel is the first authorized return to Shirley Jackson‘s iconic queer horror The Haunting of Hill House from 1959. Same setting, new characters. I had high expectations and they were pretty much met (I wanted a bit less action pre-house and a little more buildup to the climax). But Hand does an amazing job creating a spooky atmosphere and I found the borderline unlikable characters and their relationships fascinating.

Clare-Dragonfly Ooh, “high expectations and they were pretty much met” is high praise! I have this on my library holds list—I‘m excited to read it! 3w

I haven't read a book that did such a good job doing exactly what it set out to do in a long time. A melancholy character study of a young woman whose mother recently passed away who has a life-changing affair in her first year of college with an older woman professor. I was tempted many times to record some of Hart's beautiful but sparse writing but decided to just stay in the moment and keep reading. An incredible book, especially for a debut.

Ruthiella Agree. This was a great debut. Well written and thought provoking. 1mo

Ha! Two women who have a brief encounter in the sapphic quarters of a Parisian brothel unexpectedly meet again at a business meeting where the power imbalance is immediately thrown off... What a fun beginning!

I only wish the publisher could have sprung for a photographic cover that featured both women. I would love to see the older, masculine presenting Latina woman who wears trousers!

This is so good so far! Old best friends turned enemies have to take a cross country road trip as it's their queer former high school teacher / mentor's dying wish. Pretty sure part of his plan is to get these two ladies to forgive each other and fall in love #QueerBooks #Romantsy

Oof this book was so good and too real. Two old high school friends meet up on spring break of their first year of university in NYC, where they've always wanted to go. One of their classmates tags along ... and throws a huge wrench in the dynamic. Young sapphics making questionable decisions, evolving friendships, a strong sense of place, gorgeous drawings, impeccable dialogue! Great job with the charismatic but ultimately toxic character.

Got about an hour into this but I'm not really feeling it. It's not bad, just kind of meh. I feel like the author is constantly telling me why the character's behaviour is bad, because of her recent breakup. I get it, stop overexplaining! This is probably a better queer Jewish pick for the target audience, teens, than 38-year-old me lol. #QueerBooks

So far this is very silly, very horny, and very queer. Plus, softball. Love it. #QueerBooks

This was very fun, very nerdy, and very cute! I swear I had no idea this had queer content, but I guess I have some kind of spidey sense because one of the leads is bi and demisexual. I loved this grumpy/sunshine combo, especially since both of them are older. Although lol on the cover artist who apparently thinks that's what a 48 and a 50 year old look like. Great secondary characters too, especially the ones you were meant to hate!

slategreyskies I loved this book! ❤️ 3mo
