I wrote HOPE IS A FERRIS WHEEL and love love love reading. I read a lot of comics these days, and less fiction, but I'm trying to get back into the prose world.

Just a quick note: I do not check the notifications here very often! I do add books, especially when I have something to say about them.

So cute! So sweet! So swoony! So vibrant! I really enjoyed this rom-com set in Los Angeles and its focus on fashion, friendship, and of course, f/f romance.

“Hope is a Ferris wheel-
It takes Low and High;
And when you reach the Top,
It’s like you can touch The Sky!
And when it takes you Down-
Hope becomes A Thing
That, When you’re getting Off,
You take With you to Bring.”
Robin Herrera, Hope Is a Ferris Wheel

“Her parents could have named her Aria, or Harmonia, or Tessitura, or a hundred other clever names that would have alluded to her ancestry. But they weren't for her, these names that roll or sparkle or play or simply proclaim, I am normal!

Adi Rule, Strange Sweet Song

“Bindy Mackenzie talks like a horse.”
Jaclyn Moriarty

“I don't like being dared—it's aggressive, a trap to make people feel foolish.”
Rachel M. Wilson, Don't Touch

“Alone was the note that Cade knew best. It was the root of all her chords.”
Amy Rose Capetta

“He turned to face the long, shadowy hall. There was no turning back now. Unless, of course, he decided to turn back.”
Lauren Magaziner, Pilfer Academy: A School So Bad It's Criminal
