Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer to recap our weeks and show off our new bookish goodies!
Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit totally surpassed my already high expectations for it. I was 100% intrigued by a Christian character who is the daughter of a preacher being out and proud, then forced back into the closet. I wasn’t expecting to have so many emotions though! Jo’s father has just remarried, and now they’re moving to his new wife’s hometown. Her parents and the town in general aren’t very accepting, so Jo’s father asks her to lie low for the year and in return she can have her own radio show. Jo agrees, but things get complicated when she starts falling for Mary Carlson.
Fit Readers is a weekly meme and call to action for us bookworms to get up and get moving! It’s hosted by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and Jen @ That’s What I’m Talking About. Each week, we’re asked to check in and share our fitness history. So let’s see how I got moving last week…
Binge Watchers is a no-format, bi-weekly meme hosted by Michelle and Stormi to discuss what we’ve watched, what we’re watching, and what we plan to watch. Basically, anything to do with the addicting passtime of binge watching, whether that’s through Netflix, Hulu, DVDs, or DVR!
Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. It’s where we get to share books that have been on our wishlists forever or are newly added. My Amazon Wishlist is overflowing, so let’s see what title I’m featuring this week…
History is All You Left Me sounded like it was going to be heartbreaking, thought provoking, and hopeful. And it was for the most part, but I did find myself bored with Griffin’s story in the middle. His ex-boyfriend just died and Griffin is fully submerged in his grief. Then he sees Theo’s current boyfriend at the funeral. He should hate Jackson, but Griffin knows that he’s the only person who really understands what he’s going through. The two come together to share their grief and history with Theo, but Griffin isn’t being totally honest.
At the Edge of the Universe was so weird. I knew it was going to be weird, and it was, and that is great! Ozzie is the only person who remembers his boyfriend, Tommy. One day Tommy was there, and the next he simply wasn’t. Even photographs and Ozzie’s journal entries are missing Tommy. Ozzie is determined to find him, even though no one believes that Tommy ever existed. On top of that, the universe is shrinking at an alarming rate. Will the world exist long enough for Ozzie to find him?
