“Adulthood Is a Myth” by Sarah Andersen

As an adult you really don’t get much more fun than when you’re reading books about how to be an adult. The truth is – adulthood is messy and no fun at all and you better try laughing at it while you still can.

25855506 This is a funny little collection of thoughts and scribbles about small aspects of adult life that you’ve never been able to find funny before. For those people who are yet to become adults and find that terrifying – they should read this book and change their minds. For adults, well, we can all at least laugh at life when it smacks us right in our faces.

This is only a first part of graphic novel series that is fun and smart and just amazing. I recommend it to everyone who just needs a break from life.

“Openly Straight” and “Honestly, Ben” by Bill Konigsberg

I’ve mentioned before these books, well the first one especially since the sequel is just out. This is one of the coming of age books I used to like a lot (even if I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads).

                                                            This is actually a story about the growing up of two guys. What’s interesting it’s that the 16100972author decided not to show a version of the world (not completely realistic) where it’s completely okay to be gay. The main characters are Rafe (the first book is from his POV) and Ben (the second book is from his POV). You may find strange, these two voices, they seem like very grown up people, I know I did, but it was also very interesting and a nice change.

A story of a trans superhero: Dreadnought by April Daniels

30279514

Metahumans are getting more and more popular. Just start with X-Men movies and comics and the new popular Tv shows like The Flash and Supergirl. Of course, the story about their superpowers and all the fights is exciting but the viewers are even more interested in their human struggles. Metahumans are perceived as monsters, half human, unnatural. They have a hard time fitting into “normal” life and it’s almost impossible for them to find love. But what happens when even in that world there’s someone who is not accepted?

BOOK REVIEW:The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak

30753698Number of pages: 304 

Expected publication: February 7th 2017 by Simon & Schuster

I’ve had the best of luck with books on NetGalley recently!

Of course I chose this book cause I’m a sucker for coming-of-age novels. If you’re looking for  a great book about friendship and growing up and cutesy teen romances then be sure to check out: We’re Still Tornadoes or Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secret Of The Universe which are both amazing and some of the best books I’ve read. This is one of those stories and I liked it a lot.

I remember when I first used a computer. It was large and heavy and we used it to write Word documents for hours. And when we first started using the Internet, well, it was a whole new Universe.

BOOK REVIEW: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

28220739Number of pages: 304

Published November 1st 2016 by St. Martin’s Griffin

✴✴✴✴✴

Here’s my review: I absolutely loved this book! No, but seriously. It’s amazing.

This is the story about two teenagers, Scott and Cath who just finished their high school. While Cath is going to college, Scott, for some reason doesn’t make any effort and stays in their home town to work at his father’s clothing store. The whole story is a string of letters they send back and forth, where they describe their heartbreaks, their insecurities and all the good things that happen, so they can be apart but still be great friends.

The story is set in the 80’s so there are many musical references which I absolutely enjoyed.

3 favorite gay and lesbian novels to celebrate upcoming pride

So it’s pride week soon in my country and I was going to celebrate it by watching some great lesbian movies but the first one turned out to be a sad one so I’m writing this post instead (I will watch those movies though cause I won’t allow anyone to make me think gay equals sad!). Just in case, here are some great lesbian movies to watch:

  • The Handmaiden (2016) director Park Chan-Wook
  • Kiss Me (2011) director Alexandra Therese Keining
  • Carol (2015) director Todd Haynes
