We Met in December by Rosie Curtis

I like multiple perspectives, so I'm glad we got both Jess and Alex's stories along the way. I didn't feel really invested the stakes, because obviously they'll get their HEA at the end. I didn't care for the supporting cast, mostly Sophie, who seeme ...more

3.5 stars, maybe? A+ diversity and A+ sex positivity, which are both things I value in a good YA. But also it had so much angst and it felt really long. I don't feel like Ruby ever completed the journey of self-discovery she was on and that was reall ...more

Beard Necessities by Penny Reid
Rate this book
Clear rating
I have loved this series in all of its ridiculous beardiness and I'm pretty sad to see it end. I've been looking forward to the final book for what seems like forever...and it was just OK. It felt super long and so over-dramatic. I'm all about sexual ...more

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

Was a sequel to The Handmaid's Tale necessary? No. But as a book that has become increasingly important in a politically messed up world, I appreciate badass women doing badass things in order to topple a messed up government.

Like everyone who worships Rainbow Rowell, I've been anticipating this for so long and I wasn't at all disappointed.

It was so lovely to get thrown back into Simon Snow's world and to see what has happened to him and his friends since he d

Beard with Me by Penny Reid

I didn't expect this series to have a YA novel thrown into it, yet here we are. Billy and Claire's (aka Scarlett) backstory was never going to be anything but tragic, and so nothing was terribly surprising about this very sad story. It just makes me ...more

I almost DNF-ed this one several times, but I wanted to get to the end just to see what twisty way it ended. I enjoy Summer Heacock's writing, it's smart and witty, but in the end I couldn't get past the male love interest's bad behavior, which was s ...more

“Here was the secret of this house, the thing it took bravery to face -- that to go on loving someone means to over and over again allow the necessary pain. ”
Leah Stewart, The Myth of You and Me

Leah Stewart
“So Sonia was not my only or even my first best friend. She was the last. It wasn t that I hadn t made friends since just that I thought myself past the age of that particular kind of friendship. Adult friendship doesn t grant you an exclusive isn t meant to be ranked above romance and family. I couldn t imagine ever living that moment again when you say with a shy and hopeful pride You re my best friend. The other person says it back and there you have chosen each other out of everyone else in the world. ”
Leah Stewart, The Myth of You and Me

Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Neil Gaiman
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
Neil Gaiman
