I really liked this one a lot! I have loved all of Lacour's YA books so I had high hopes for it! It wasn't extraordinary; it didn't shake my world up, but it was enjoyable and pleasant and a great read! 💕📖 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #rumpel

LiteraryinLawrence Kitty!! I‘m sorry the book didn‘t blow you away. Mine should be arriving soon and I agree, I have very high hopes for it. 14h

The first novel I‘ve read by this author—and her first piece of adult fiction (she usually writes YA)—is an emotional and gut-wrenching journey through the lives of two young women. Publication is expected May 31. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#yerba-buena

TheBookHippie I have it sitting here… I‘ve been looking at it for weeks 🤣🤣🤣🤣. I can‘t make myself read sad. 1d
JoyBlue @TheBookHippie I hear you! I got approved for the NetGalley on February 15, but didn't start reading until May 14 (finished on the 15th—exactly three months after approval—yikes!). I'm really glad that I read it, but it may not be the book for everyone, especially at this time. 💙 1d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I‘m so glad this was a #LMPBC selection for #GroupE. Masood weaves just two tales of two very different Muslim/Muslim-American experiences. Anvar was hilarious, definitely laugh out loud moments, but also gave good attention to parent-child dynamics…he provided the levity at times to Safwa‘s trying experience.

I received this promotional poster for preordering the tagged book! 📚💕 I forgot this was coming, especially since I canceled my original preorder when I chose it for my Book of the Month pick! Oops! 😳 Isn't the artwork so pretty? 😍

I like this book and the style it‘s written in. It‘s a library book I borrowed for a #LibraryThing reading challenge to read a book whose author is from one of the “Stans” (ASIAN BOOK CHALLENGE 2022 - IN MAY IT'S THE "STANS"). The author is from #Pakistan, and this story begins in #Karachi. I set aside the other four books I‘m reading to start this book! ?

For #traveltheunitedstates I‘ve picked this YA whodunnit set in #california. This story was really engaging with an Agatha Christie theme. The pacing at first was a little slow but it did find its groove and turned into a decent read #maybookclubs #mayreading #springread

Read through this #botm in a day!

A story of two women and how their lives eventually intertwine. Literary lesbian romance, with more focus on the literary than romance angle. This lives and the struggles they go through are detailed, making them seem more real.

Rating this 4/5, great quick queer read. Spoiler thoughts in comments.

Kitta Spoiler: I‘m sorry but no one goes from nothing to shooting heroin immediately! That part wasn‘t believable at all. I wish they made her overdose on something else. 2w
Kitta Also why would her dad make that drawing and then keep it for someone to find? Seems unlikely and strange behaviour. 2w

So yeah, I‘m not a fan of romances, but sometimes I can do literary ones, which is what this is. However, I just finished another literary romance (Carol by Highsmith for Author a Month), so I‘m putting this one in the vault…

Maybe I should‘ve gone with the thriller…🤔 #botm

Cinfhen Awww, that‘s a shame, that you didn‘t connect. I had a hard time categorizing this one / i guess literary romance is a good description but it wasn‘t really romance-y for me. I think I was drawn in by the narration and I liked the idea of working with plants & flowers 🌸😊maybe another time you‘ll feel differently. Did you like 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘m not sure how I feel about Carol. I finished it 2 days ago, and I‘m still not ready to write the review. (But it will probably come to me today.) I feel one way about it couched in the context of its time and how groundbreaking it was and another way reading it as a person in 2022. The audiobook was great. Cassandra Campbell narrates. Plus I‘m having trouble following the Egan, which I loved. 2w
AbstractMonica I tried picking this one up a few times, but couldn‘t stay interested one bit. Hopefully I can try reading it again in the near future. 2w
Soubhiville Seeing your post today I had to flip back to why you DNF‘d this. I really like this author‘s YA. But I get it. Looks like the rest of your week held some really great books though, so yay! 2w

WHOO HOO! MY BOOK OF THE MONTH BOX ARRIVED TODAY! 🎉🎉🎉 At least this month I don't have ANY hesitation over which book to start first - I've loved Nina Lacour's YA fiction for a while now, so I'm dying to read this adult book by her! 😍 #botm #bookmail
