I listened to this on audiobook through Libby, which I never do. However, I found the narration perfect and charming. It didn‘t make me a total convert, but I enjoyed it. Not much really happens in the story, but it is a good, light “read” with a main character with ASD, and it is enjoyable, so I‘ll call it a “pick.”

Tanisha_A I love this one! 4w
AllenTStClair @Tanisha_A I really enjoyed it, especially as one of my first forays into audiobooks, I just didn‘t rave about it because it was fairly light on plot. But I would definitely recommend it. 4w

I‘ve read all of Chelsea Handler‘s books and I never fail to laugh uproariously. I laughed loudly at least three dozen times, but unlike her other books, this one also made me nearly cry. Much more mature, self-aware, poignant (and a little dark at times), this book felt like the most accurate representation of Handler as a human, not a “celebrity”. You‘ll laugh out loud, then flip the page, and feel like crying. I love Chelsea more now.

MicheleinPhilly I sobbed reading this. Great review! 1mo
Sarah_Readerton I just finished this too. I loved it so much! This was definitely one of her best. 1mo

I have to say, the resolution in the final chapter of this book wasn‘t satisfying enough. It didn‘t match the brilliant, sharp prose of the rest of the book. Having said that—I adored this one. Saenz is sharp, concise, and writes vivid characters you will fall in love with. Definitely a pick! 😍🤩

TracyReadsBooks A sequel is in the works—I only hope it comes sooner rather than later. I can‘t wait to spend more time with Aristotle and Dante! 2mo

I don‘t know if I can fully process this one right now ‘cause it got me right in the gut. Such an important YA book about racial injustice and inequity. I recommend it as required reading for that alone. But I definitely recommend it for how Nic Stone illustrated that hope can come out of tragedy and how, regardless of how injustices and bigotry affect us, we get to decide for ourselves who we will be. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘ve followed Eddie Izzard‘s career since I first saw “Dress to Kill” in the late 90s. Just like his one man shows, Izzard discusses the most heartbreaking and harrowing topics with intelligence, wit, and poignancy. Also like his one man shows, take your time. Read. Reread. There are stories and allegories, all meant to be relished and savored. I adored this! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

goodbyefrancie We saw him present this book a few months ago, and he was great. We've been to several of his shows, and it's interesting to know more of his story. Great guy! 4mo

I was a beta-reader on this one awhile back and forgot to review it! Chase Connor released this first book in his LGBTQ paranormal romance series...and it was so much fun! Romance, fashion, celebrity, danger, drag queens, werewolves, crotchety granny...it‘s got everything. And, as always, Chase is a master of witty, entertaining dialogue. Definitely a must!

I thought this one was “okay”. Loved the diversity of female archetypes and LGBTQ representation—but like a lot of books that I‘ve read lately, I feel that it took the scenic route in telling the story. If Ms. Waters had cut some of the book and been more succinct in some places, I would have been absolutely stunned. Overall, though, amazing historical fiction with a twist from an exceptional writer.

Cathythoughts Great ! I‘m looking forward to it 7mo

Donna Tarrt is an exceptional writer. This book is not exceptional. It‘s boring, bloated, and takes a really long road to the destination: “people look out for and protect beautiful things.” I just did not find this one entertaining or enjoyable at all. The Pulitzer Prize Board disagrees, so take that as you will. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Sorry my first time posting in weeks is this. 🤣

Onve again, Chase Connor knocks it out of the park with an LGBTQ novella. This one is even more touching and endearing than his others. Mike, one of the MC‘s is told “He‘s a psycho” when he asks who the kid with the iceberg eyes is. Told over 8 years time, this is a lovely tale about burgeoning love. Highly recommend!

Just finished this beautiful collection of stories, and...WOW. Sachdeva has a real knack for telling the story of a life in a few short pages. From sci-fi, to magical realism, to plain ole fiction, the stories cover several genres. And each proves Sachdeva‘s capability as a writer. Stunningly haunting, heartbreakingly beautiful, and unabashedly bold. Every story is a gem.

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

Pickpick

I struggled with how to review this book. And the only thing I can think to say is that, after ‘A Man Called Ove‘, I didn‘t think Fredrik Backman could write a better book. This one proved me wrong. ‘Us Against You‘ is a masterpiece in writing and storytelling, and even better than ‘Beartown‘, in my opinion. No one understands the human condition like Backman. This was absolutely brilliant while being excruciatingly heartbreaking. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another YA LGBTQ novel I recently read. Just like Chase Connor‘s other book “Just a Dumb Surfer Dude”—this one was so fun! Witty dialogue, characters you‘ll fall in love with, and you‘ll be wiping tears away at the end. And ✊🏼 for POC representation! I would definitely recommend this to YA lovers!

As I Lay Dying | William Faulkner

It was a mild, rainy day in my neck of Texas—so what better to do than read? People say so many great things about this book—and it is interesting and engaging—but I finished it hating nearly every character in it. Especially Anse, the patriarch of the family. To me, the story was just a long way of saying “sin begets sin”. Maybe, in twenty years, I‘ll reread it and find a deeper appreciation for it. Until then: 🤬

Zelma I can‘t do Faulkner. I know people might say I‘m missing out but I have tired and failed, and ultimately decided that I can live with that! 😆 9mo

Zelma @AllenTStClair good to know! 😂👍 9mo
AlaMich And then there‘s the movie tie-in cover...I hate those. As if Faulkner weren‘t bad enough by himself. IMHO, of course. I am in agreement with @Zelma on that. (edited) 9mo

When I read books, more than anything, I decide how much I like them based on how they make me feel. This one hit all the feels. This is a YA novel that, while quite a bit over the top, reminds the reader that life isn‘t just about being alive. A great first love story, an adventure, a mystery, a lament on how life is worth dying for—this book is everything.

I read this ebook on Kindle Unlimited this morning as a palate cleanser. It‘s a gay coming-of-age love story, and a little predictable—but so much fun. Lots of witty dialogue, LOVE the relationship between Cooper (the MC) and his father, and it left me with a warmed heart. And it‘s 125ish pages, so it‘s a quick read. Oh, and it‘s FREE on Kindle Unlimited!!! What more could you want?

How would you live if you knew when you‘d die? Would you squeeze every bit of juice from the orange...or stagnate in worry about your choices? Every “YES!” to this one. A book about life, death, and choices. The freedom to choose and finding joy in that freedom. While Simon‘s and Varya‘s sections were my favorite parts, the entire book should be savored. Supremely moving, incredibly heartbreaking, and stunningly beautiful. Just like life.

Is there anyone out there right now funnier than Tiffany Haddish? This ebook that I borrowed from Libby made me drop my phone a couple of times from laughing too hard.
