book nerd problems

Some People Just Don't Understand
  • Friend: Why are you smiling so big?
  • Me: This damn book.
  • *five minutes later*
  • Friend: Holy shit, why are you crying?
  • Me: This damn book.
  • *five minutes later*
  • Me: *screams in horror*
  • Friend: What? What's wrong?
  • Me: This damn book.
  • Me: *turns the page*
  • Me: *laughs hysterically*
  • Friend: GOD FUCKING--

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.

  • Me: Multitasking
  • Friend B: ...How is that multitasking
  • Me: *Putting book down* Well, I'm talking to you while reading and also planning how to get away with murder because you are talking to me while I am clearly reading.
  • Friend B: Okay, I guess you are multitasking...
  • Friend A: So... how's the book?
  • Me: *Throws hands up in exasperation*
