In which I realize that so many of the stories I’ve loved fall into the science fiction category. I tell you what drew me into these stories —badass women, romantic virtual beings, anti-capitalist commentary.
These are not your blockbuster superhero films with cult followings. They are superheroes of various races, ages and sexual orientations, dealing with mental illness, family drama and falling in love.
Float Plan is emotional, enlightening, empowering, encouraging —I think it could *and should* be the PS I Love You meets Eat Pray Love of our time.
This sequel to A Boy at the Edge of the World is just as gloriously delightful and brimming with the essence of life as the first in this series. I remain in awe of David Kingston Yeh’s writing.
Jackson and Leland’s story is basically a really funny, m/m version of Killing Eve. I will 2000% be listening to this again soon, just to laugh as openly and loudly as I did allll throughout this book.
The impact that Penetration Test’s story (more specifically, its trans and HIV-positive characters) had on me is what inspired my reading life this weekend.
Better Than People is the charming, cozy, low-angst comfort read I didn’t know I needed. The anxiety rep is startlingly accurate, and Jack’s once-scorned-now-grumpy mood is relatable as heck.
Lee Wind crafted some kind of magic in this, his incredible timeless breathtaking debut. Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill talks frankly about the social justice issues of the past, and the way they’re still today’s issues. The characters question each other, and they question themselves.
Right now, I’m listening to Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, Courtney Maum’s novel Touch, and reading an arc of Trish Doller’s Float Plan, which releases March 2021.
Reading this book really felt like being on camp. It’s a wonderland of excellent, supportive queer people, and it will give you high school camp crush feels!
