Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera

This is so great! Well-structured and -plotted, and Juliet is such a compelling protagonist. There were some copy errors that made me cringe but hopefully they'll be tweaked in the re-issue. SO good, I'm so glad this exists.

I loved the Argonauts SO much that I think my expectations were unfair! I liked this, but some of it felt a little too self-indulgent, which is poetry in a nutshell I guess.

Moby-Dick, or, the Whale by Herman Melville
Rate this book

I mean, it's a classic for a reason, right? Surprisingly funny and queer and compelling. There's a particular chapter about the cyclical nature of labor and human struggle that I keep thinking about. I wish it were not...so racist and also a little b ...more

When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
Rate this book
Clear rating
There was a lot I wanted to like about this, but it got lost in its own lyricism. I couldn’t care about the characters or any of the plot, really, because the writing was SO purple and there was nothing anchoring the magical part of the story.

Holy moly I LOVED this. It has some stylistic traits that would normally throw me off (multiple first person perspective shifts mostly) but the story was so good. I wolfed it down.
