idk about you guys, but seeing a book cover that really explicitly shows two girls who are into eachother is giving me all kinds of feels. When I was a kid reading YA, I didn't even know showing f/f couples in books was a thing, and now we're putting them loud and proud on the cover and it's making me so happy.

this cover rules 20GayTeen is officially extended into 2019

it's been YEARS and YA just hasn't been catering to my interest in sapphic romantic comedies AND NOW HERE WE ARE LOOK HOW FAR WE'VE COME, MY DUDES
Thank GOD this was as good as I wanted and needed it to be. This book is such a happy place and I'm so excited for fellow rom-com lovers to love it and ship Sana and Rachel as hard as I do.

*whispers softly* the cover is so beautiful

First and most of all, let’s look at the cover and appreciate it for what it is. I’ve talked so much about how het romances have covers which outright show a boy and girl softly gazing at one another. But gay love stories never have soft covers like that??????? Seeing this cover was so nice. In fact, it was more than nice because it was adorable and very clearly Sapphic and look at how fond T

this promises to be an f/f romantic comedy featuring brown muslim girls, is completely #ownvoices, has THAT cover, and focuses on film in LA. if this doesn't become my new fave contemporary, then God has just let me down.

Literally every time I see this cover I have to stop and stare at it because it's so pretty and I want to read it so bad!

this is pitched as a pride and prejudice retelling so it's either going to be amazing or hot garbage.

Rachel and Sana gave me all the feels and then more!! Aminah Mae Safi has done it again and I am so flipping excited to see what else the talented author has up her sleeve!
I couldn't put this book down; I loved the alternating perspectives, I loved the family relationships both girls had but most of all I loved the story of Sana and Rachel. I could spend the next paragraphs gushing about how amazing this book was but I will restrain myself a bit :)
Go out 6/11/19 and buy this book then clear you

Unless this book has the worst writing, nothing will stop me from reading this.
I adore the cover. The plot contains a trope I'm such a sucker for. Plus I haven't read many romances between women. Especially in the genres I'm a sucker for.
