The Wild Iris, by Louise Glück
This is exactly my kind of poetry! Accessible language yet incredibly striking, often brutal, always exquisite.
You've Reached Sam, by Dustin Thao
Some parts were painful, yeah. But overall this book was subpar. The execution could've been way better, but the characters were stale bread. The conversations just dragged on and felt empty. Most of this could've been compressed into significantly less pages if it weren't so filled with dull, repetitive dialogue. I'm sorry but not even Sam had personality enough to make me grieve for him.
Today Tonight Tomorrow, by Rachel Lynn Solomon
okay this was really cute but...after they got together everything just happened to fast?
SpoilerRowan only realized her feelings hours ago and immediately they're exchanging i love yous and talking about the future. idk may appeal to some, it just threw me off guard.
If You Could See the Sun, by Ann Liang
GIVE ME A HENRY LI PLEAAAAASSSEEEE I WANT ONE
Love and Other Words, by Christina Lauren
Doesn’t come close to PWMOV for me as a best friends to lovers tale. Still good though, and worth the read. But also forgettable.
