ARC Review: Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka

I’ll be honest: I totally requested this book all because of its beautiful cover. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that its contents were just as lovely as the outside cover! Always Never Yours follows our main character, Megan Harper, through her senior year of high school. She unexpectedly gets cast as Juliet in her prestigious high school theater program’s production of Romeo and Juliet, after auditioning for the smallest speaking part to fulfill a requirement for a directing program she’s applying to.

Posted May 3, 2018 by Madalyn / 10 Comments

Hello, friends! Today, I’m here with a follow-up to a post I did during Pride Month last year wherein I discussed some of my favorite books that featured f/f romances. I of course still highly recommend all of the books I mentioned in that post, but I wanted to write a part two talking about some of the awesome f/f books I’ve read in the past year. F/F ships still deserve a whole lot more love than they get in the bookish/blogging community, so this post is my humble attempt at remedying that! madalyn’s recommendations (Covers link to Goodreads) Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli // Leah actually inspired this post!

Waiting On Wednesday: Odd One Out by Nic Stone

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a feature where we show off one of our most anticipated upcoming book releases. Where we tend to add more books to your never-ending TBR. madalyn’s waiting on… why i’m waiting I mean, first off, I will read anything with Nic Stone’s name attached to it. But add in the fact that it’s about queer teens of color? I’m even more in. Also, love triangles, when they’re well-executed, are one of my favorite tropes. Plus, I hear Odd One Out has some great discussion about identity and sexuality, which I’m ALWAYS here for. Basically, I needed this book in my hands, like, yesterday. Are you as excited as I am […]
