“We all got something. My dads got a rotten temper. Me, I can‘t read very well.”
This was a sweet and fun read, definitely the kind of thing I needed. I love that drag culture is getting a moment in the sun here, and I would love to be friends with Deirdre, so long as she knew my ass is never getting on a stage. It‘s definitely a debut and is a little rough in parts, and some of the dialogue was a bit much, but I enjoyed it and will certainly check out whatever the author writes next. 3/5 ⭐️
The tents dotted the far corner of the Weeds, and the rides occupied the rest of the space. Surprisingly, Charles loved rides. Unsurprisingly, I hated them. I couldn‘t see the point of scaring the crap out of myself. Life is terrifying enough as it is.
I'm always excited by a book depicting religious, liberal teens active in youth groups since that was me. Even better is the thoughtful way Stevens shows Billie's questioning of just who she is and what she wants - particularly around her sexuality. The strong friendships were great, although not all equally shown. I'm not quite sold on the ending - maybe a little too deus ex machina for me? Very, very good overall and I definitely enjoyed it.
I loved how the story was told through a series of short, first-person narrative style poems. this book was great input on the terror and trama of the hartford circus fire of 1944. not only that but it got me intrested and started to look up more stuff about it over all thi book gets a 9.5/10 cuz nothing is perfect
I'm late with my #bookreport - it wasn't my best week ever in general, but reading went ok. Finished Dress Codes for Small Towns and A Very Large Expanse of Sea. Enjoyed them both, but actually switched up my next e-read to be Furyborn instead of Here to Stay because it felt like too much realistic fiction in a row. Still working on What If It's Us and The Gilded Wolves. Just barely started Internment on audio in the car. @Cinfhen
