Unfollow | Megan Phelps-Roper
post image
Pickpick

I watched Megan give a TED talk about her journey of leaving her family and the Westboro Baptist Church (her grandfather was the infamous Pastor Fred Phelps), and I was completely blown away by her insight and her compassion. This book was difficult to listen to at times, the things WBC have done are just horrible, but Megan gives me hope that change is real and everyone deserves a second chance.

Time of Our Lives | Austin Siegemund-Broka, Emily Wibberley

Mehso-so

I absolutely ADORED “If I‘m Being Honest” so I was completely hyped to start this but it unfortunately missed the mark for me. I‘m not a huge fan of capsule romances that only last for a short period of time and this fell into that category. In the end, it‘s sadly a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me.

I‘ve always been weirdly fascinated by cults and this story has interested me since it entered the public news a while ago.

Frankly in Love | David Yoon

I loved this so much. Frank is a refreshingly honest and moral character and I am such a fan of how Yoon addresses culture and finding your tribe, casual racism and even internal prejudice. It‘s also amazing to read #ownvoices books about Korean Americans ☺️

4.5 / 5

My parents also divorced when I was young when my dad came out as gay. Similar to Sweet Pea‘s parents, they remained close allies and friends instead of hating each other—I‘ve never seen my family represented in a book before and I wish this had existed when I was in middle school ❤️
