Check, Please: vol. 2: Sticks & Scones by Ngozi Ukazu

I’ve been excited for Check, Please 2 for an entire YEAR because of the ending of book 1, and I think buying both of them was an excellent use of my Amazon points because I basically got them for free. Anyhoo. I liked this book ok, but overall I didn’t like it as much as Check, Please 1 because I felt like the narrative switched from Bitty being a happy and well-adjusted self-loving gay to him and Jack having to prove to others and themselves that they were model gays, basically, and therefore deserving of love and respect. It felt like it changed to the narrative that straight people expect from a queer story, and that really disappointed me.

You Should See Me in a Crown & The Poppy War (not shown) & Sal & Gabi Break the Universe (not shown)

I just started reading THE POPPY WAR and am not sure how I feel about it yet. I also started YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN and am finding it a bit slow to get into, but I still have hope for it. Oh, and I’m reading Sal & Gabi Break the Universe for a program at the library (I’m going to be doing book talks for a September video for Hispanic Heritage Month).

Clap When You Land and/or With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

Honestly I’m really not sure what I’m reading next because I need to work out which readathons I’m participating in and look at my TBR. I am tempted to read CLAP WHEN YOU LAND and/or WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH by Elizabeth Acevedo because my work bff has been reading those and they have both been burning holes in my TBR for too long considering how much I loved THE POET X.

Tell me all about your recent/upcoming reads in the comments, please!!
