This is a book I was so excited about that I preordered. While I knew from the cover that it was a book that I needed to read, the synopsis had me hopked. Witches in Salem today? Check. Lesbians? Check. Danger? Checkity check check.
Alright y’all, lets talk about some of my favorite space babies!
I’ve been following Kevin Panetta and Paulina Ganucheau around the Internet for a couple years now, so when I learn that Panetta (along with Ganucheau’s sister) was working on a graphic novel, the hype was real. Bloom finally came out, and I’m so glad to have read it!
I received an arc of Geekerella before its release, and was lucky enough to receive one of The Princess and the Fangirl as well! Before this I had read Geekerella and Heart of Iron from Poston, so I knew I loved her style. I also knew that Geekerella is one of two Cinderella adaptations I enjoy (the other is the movie with Brandi).
I had heard a bunch of positivity surrounding What if it’s Us, so I just had to check it out.
Alright, I know I’m late, but I made it! I finally read Simon, aka the book that inspired Love, Simon, aka a huge deal. I read a bit about this when the movie was released, and saw that prominent figures (especially in the LGBTQ+ community) were buying out whole theatres so people could watch it. So I finally got my life together enough to read the book, and wow.
I did not read anything about this book before I bought it. I assumed it was just a story about strong women in someone’s life, and how they influenced the writer and/or main character. But this is a series of essays or short stories about struggles that are very real (and some that aren’t quite real) for women all over the world.
