MINI Reviews #1 // Some LGBT+ YA Novels

Hey there!

I hope you’re having a wonderful year so far (filled with books). I missed out on reading in January and half of February due to being overseas and no access to English YA novels (had some gay novels). That was tough. Once I returned I started looking at all I missed out on, series that I can finally complete, etc. I think I devoured more books in these past 3 months than I ever have in a 3 month span!

Helps to consolidate things. This MINI review contains 4 books (I think that’ll be the max for every MINI): Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, Hero by Perry Moore, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, and Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. Each image leads to Goodreads details.

And in my quest to see if there were many male/male YA novels, I came across Half Bad. I saw that the final book was on its way the next month, so I began reading…

And it was quite a ride. Continue reading The Half Bad Trilogy // A Gritty World & Unique Magic
