Cool for the Summer by Dahlia Adler: ARC Book Review

OMG, you guys-

I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! Like, literally, SO MUCH. 💖

Look, I may be biased because I am also a bi-Jewish girl, and so definitely saw myself in the leads and related to them immensely. But what’s wrong with that?! I’ve hardly have ever felt as seen in a book as I did while reading this one.

I found both Lara and Jasmine to be very easy to root for. My heart went out to both of them! I have definitely been where each of them were at different points in my life, and so it was impossible not to be hit with all those emotions again as I read this novel.

I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre: Blog Tour & Book Review

I was instantly drawn to I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre the second I laid eyes on it. The title is perfect, the cover is gorgeous, and the premise? *Chef’s kiss* c’est magnifique! I mean, sapphic rivals-to-lovers falling in love while filming their own sapphic rom-com? I’m pretty sure that’s the most perfect premise I’ve ever heard.

So, you can guess how high my expectations were for this story going into it.

And, oh. My. God. Did it ever exceed them.

This book was literally everything I’ve ever wanted.

Written in the Stars by Alexandra Bellefleur: ARC Book Review

Hello! My name is Liza and I’m a self-proclaimed Austen-aholic. 🙋🏻‍♀️

If you know anything about me you have to know that I adore my Jane Austen. So you can bet how excited I was to hear about a queer retelling of Pride and Prejudice.

Written in the Stars tells the story of Elle, a twitter-famous social media astrologer, and Darcy, a skeptical actuary who’s secret obsession is watching daytime soap operas. These two couldn’t appear more different from the outset. And when they first meet, disaster strikes in the form of a truly horrible blind date. (We’re talking drinks spilled, outfits ruined, the whole nine yards!)

Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden: Book Review

I felt as though I had to review at least one LGBTQ book during June, what with it being Pride Month. I honestly don’t think I could have picked up a better novel to read this month than Annie on My Mind, and I’m so glad I get to share my thoughts about it with you.

I’m honestly ashamed it took me this long to read Annie on My Mind. I’m a queer woman and my name is Liza(!!!). But even though it took me so long to find this book, while reading it I felt as though it was written specifically for me.

And, in a lot of ways it was.
