Although it deals with a lot of heavier topics (parental neglect, suicidal thoughts, and co-dependency in relationships), it’s a great Romeo and Juliet retelling and I thoroughly enjoyed it from the start. I loved Jubilee and Ridley, and would like to protect both of them, especially Ridley, from the world. Recommended to all who can handle the content. :)

A delightfully queer romcom with a super sweet protagonist, top tier friendships, some fake dating, and a friends to lovers romance between two cinnamon rolls that might actually give you cavities. Even in its emotional moments, this was a joy to read. I loved it, and Noah and Becca and Devin, and the Meet Cute Diary. The MCD is such a cute blog with a great message. Lee is an author to watch, for sure. ❤️

I’ve never read a horror novel in my life, until this. I’ve always been easily scared, and I’ve never been interested. What led to me picking this up was my mistaken thought that this was just a thriller; when I realized my mistake, I was too intrigued to stop. Props to Jackson for writing such an amazing story, it convinced me to give an entire genre a second chance. Very spooky, very chilling and unpredictable, but also good if you’re new to the genre like me. :)

A brilliantly layered story of queer hope and love. I immediately loved and sympathized with both Ruby and Morgan. I appreciated the balance between the ups and downs of their relationship, and the discussion of one queer person being out but dating someone that’s in the closet. This story had its sweet moments, but it’s also important for so many reasons. One of my new favorites, and one I highly recommend! (Check the content warnings.)

A fun and very queer historical murder mystery that deserves much more hype! I loved the characters and was immediately intrigued by the story, something that never went away, even when the pacing slowed. I was never able to guess who the killer actually was, though I had some… interesting (read: far-fetched, lol) theories. This one is definitely worth checking out!!

One of the saddest books I’ve ever read, but also one of the best portrayals of grief I’ve ever seen. Woodfolk did such a brilliant job with the characters and character dynamics, and her writing is beautiful. Highly recommended to all who are in the right headspace to read this. ❤️

I sped through this book! As soon as I started reading, I was re-immersed in the story, as if I’d never left. I adore the L’Eden crew with my whole heart, and Chokshi created such an amazing historical fantasy world. There’s so much to love about this book, including the perfect blend of angst, puzzles, and humor. The ending was perfect too, bittersweet though it was. I know I’ll be thinking about (and recommending!) these books for a long time! ❤️❤️
