It’s been a pathetic week, to be honest. So far, work is a foe that I’ve yet to conquer. I also managed to contact some sort of a communicable disease, much to my chagrin. You think missing time from work would’ve helped me tremendously in the reading front, but that’s not the case, sadly. I barely managed to function as it was, so reading was definitely out of the question.


 ONE MAN GUY by Michael Barakiva

This book is the bees’ knees! I originally gave it a four star rating but the more I sit here and think about it, I think it deserves so much more. I absolutely love this story of a couple of kids who found friendship in each other that quickly escalated into a relationship. It’s sweet, funny, and just…Michael Barakiva knows exactly how to convey what it’s like for two young, gay kids to navigate life without much drama. I adore this book!


OPEN ROAD SUMMER by Emery Lord16081202

I finished this book in a few hours. It’s so…I just want to hug the living sh*t out of it. Road trip, a boy with a guitar, a girl on reform, and basically, Taylor Swift if Taylor Swift had a childhood sweetheart that she can’t get over. It’s lovely. Sigh.





This was not as great as I thought it would be. The lady at my bookstore told me that if I liked The Fault in Our Stars, I would love this. Sadly, I didn’t. Surprising, considering it’s written by an Aussie. I always thought they have contemporary down to Science.
