Today is another repeat author review where we’re going to revisit Jae and her woman loving woman romance that is also a love letter to brick and mortar stationery stores, Paper Love. Paper Love is cute, relaxed, and for me, a bit anti-climactic.
Never thought I’d be rooting for a ruthless assassin who artfully kills her targets, yet, Requiem for Immortals had me doing just that.
This week on The Queerblr’s repeat author review is Sunsets and Shades, by Erica Lee. Sunsets and Shades is a book that will take you and your heart on an emotional journey as Kinsley Scott and Grace Harper figure out each other and, in turn, themselves.
Grimmer Intentions, book two of the Tales from the Grim series by Jodi Hutchins is even more delightful than it’s predecessor. Two strong personalities collide in an unlikely romance while tensions in the world of the Grim become palpable.
Life Minus Me was far deeper than I anticipated for a novellette, with a multitude of depth in each character, including secondary characters. It took me into a world I wanted to slip into, with mind reading half angels, premonitions, candy obsessed pixies, and demons. Plus dogs. Can’t forget the doggos.
No Parking was a delightfully cozy romance with an intriguing cast of characters and a wide diversity in a small town setting…
I can confidently say that If You Only Knew, by Jea Hawkins, did not live up to my expectations. Perhaps my expectations were far too high going into to reading this short Kindle exclusive. I read the back of the book and was immediately intrigued as to how the premise of this story could be anything other than problematic and how Hawkins was able to pull it off.
Unpredictable, original, and unapologetically queer, Reverie was a glittery, phantasmagoric adventure that grabbed me with its filigree talons and refused to let go. I stepped into this book without really reading the synopsis because I follow the author on twitter—he is absolutely hilarious—and I figured I’d go on somewhat of a blind book date. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into other than a YA queer fantasy. Damn, I was not disappointed.
If the unique art style isn’t enough to convince you to read The Prince and the Dressmaker, by Jen Wang, then the story definitely will. This graphic novel is not only visually stunning but has a narrative that will keep you at attention and characters that you can’t help but empathize with.
