…Does anybody else understand the mix of absolute frustration and excitement all at the same time? Because this new book cover is lovely, but because I’m a book snob I have to buy the first one with the new cover (lucky for me its just under $6) I’m still really excited to read this trilogy though! I just want to finish Stalking Jack the Ripper and The Bear and the Nightingale first

As a gay woman, I just really wish I could read more stories about women in love with other women. I wish I had grown up being able to go to the bookstore and pick out a book about a girl who falls in love with another girl and it being completely okay. I still need books like that. Fluffy lesbian stories along with heartbreaking ones, ones that are complicated and gut-wrenching and real. I want to open books that I can see myself in, that I can relate to on a different level.

Because honestly, the endless mountain of straight-person fiction isn’t really cutting it for me anymore.

I hadn’t intended on buying a book until
I stumbled upon this little bookshop during an outing. I love when things have a story behind them, so I’m happy to be reminded of the pleasant day I had with my family when it comes to reading this novel!
