WWW Wednesday is a book blog meme hosted by Taking On A World of Words where book bloggers answer these questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What are you reading next?
- What did you just finish reading?
Apparently I have not done a WWW Wednesday since JANUARY??? That can’t be right. Must fix this now.
OH MY GOD THIS HAD BETTER BE THE BOOK OF 2020!!!!! I didn’t even really know what this book was about before I started it on a whim because I liked the title/cover and knew it was by Ryan La Sala, but I’m so glad I impulsively read this book many many months before publication. This book is about Raffy, cosplayer and crafter extraordinaire, who’s reeling from a breakup with a surprisingly gay soccer player and dealing with constant criticism from his mom about his art. There are so many things I loved about this book, including the fact that it made me really interested in learning more about cosplaying, which is something I know about but haven’t really explored for myself (and I really need a hobby…hmmm…) I adored the writing in this and was totally addicted to Raffy’s hopeful, sometimes self-depricating, creative voice throughout the book. I really want to read REVERIE now because I’m sure La Sala’s writing will be just as good and I’m just so pumped to read more of his words.
I’m currently reading Caleb Roehrig’s about-to-be-released book, THE FELL OF DARK. I never knew I needed more vampires in my life but apparently if they’re pansexual vampires I’m right there. This book is basically Buffy the Vampire Slayer but queer & diverse, complete with creepy villains, flashbacks to dramatic and painful deaths, queer witch BFFs, and a swoony vampire love interest (DID I MENTION HE’S PANSEXUAL???) I am loving the quirky, funny, sarcastic voice of the MC, Auggie, and his antics and the antics of all the side characters, and I’m shocked I haven’t heard more about this book as its release nears.
I just bought these basically for free with Amazon points from my credit card and I’m SO EXCITED!!!! I read CHECK, PLEASE book 1 last year and adored Bittle and his pie baking, and I have been eagerly anticipating STICKS & SCONES coming out since. I usually don’t get this invested in graphic novels but I just loved all the characters in this series and can’t wait to see them again <3 <3
