This might be the best dedication I've ever seen.

charl08 I read one recently (to an academic paper) which thanked the authors' childcare providers as it wouldnt have been possible without them. 👏 1d

I loved this "post-happily ever after" story about Cinderella's stepsisters. It's a feminist story of finding your own happy ending instead of the one society thinks you should have. It's so different from other fairy tale inspired books I've read.

Caspian dramatically "died" when I leaned the book against him. ?

A fantastic collection of short stories. I enjoyed them all. They're dark and gritty and so very good.

I loved The Poet X and knew I had to read this one. It's in prose but still lyrical. Full of heart. I loved her first one more but this was still good.

Well Met | Jen DeLuca

I read this while I was in Vegas last weekend and it was super fun, quick, and cute. It made me really miss the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Also there's one rather steamy sex scene which I reached while in the shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel. 😳

My friend borrowed it and I didn't take a picture. So screenshot from #botm instead.

I was all about a genderqueer Cinderella retelling. There was some really interesting plot points but it didn't quite come together for me. Also having Cyn end up with their stepsisters was a bit too close to incest for my taste.

I loved this! It's a YA Roman Holiday retelling with a K-pop star and a paparazzi that had some surprising depth about happiness and following your dreams. I'll definitely be checking out her other books.
