Waiting
Approximately Yours (North Pole Minnesota) (Volume 3) - Julie Hammerle

This book is #3 in the North Pole, Minnesota series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to have a greater understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Danny has just been devastated by his now ex-girlfriend.  Also - by an unplanned injury.  So when he meets the newest visitors to his fine town, he is not at his best.  Can he overcome his fear of rejection to make a better impression on the right girl?

 

Holly and Elda are cousins who are visiting their grandmother's hometown to say goodbye to her for the last time.  They meet Danny again, only to both admit attraction for the guy.  Holly makes the sacrifice, to allow Elda to get closer to Danny.

 

This is another love triangle story, with a twist.  It is in the spirit of love that the main character allows her loved one to go after the boy she has always wanted.  I think the entire town is quirky and this series is a lot of fun to read.  Moments that are just laughable, can also turn into swoony moments.  Just a great book to have on the shelf!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review: Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
Autoboyography - Christina Lauren

 

"Are you willing to be a secret?"



So yes, I liked this a lot. So much, I ordered a paperback version at 50% already.

 

 

 

 

I loved Tanner & Sebastian. Maybe Tanner a bit more than Sebastian. But I guess Sebastian's journey to come out was more painful. Tanner was lucky having these amazing parents that got his back. Sebastian was an amazing guy, but unlucky to have been born in a Mormon environment. This is what he knew. And then he meets Tanner......

"I don't presume to know why Heavenly Father does the things He does, but I know in my heart that He has a plan for each of us.
He brought you into my life for a reason, Tanner. I don't know what that reason is, but I know that there's a purpose for it.
I KNOW that. Being with you isn't wrong. The way I feel about you isn't wrong."



And although I think Sebastian's family seemingly were okay people, it still boggles my mind that some parents struggle with the idea of probably rather having a dead child than a gay one.

The Morman Church/LDS is interesting though. I believe it evolves with how the world changes so hopefully one day when the world is accepting enough that we are able to love who we wish, churches will follow.

“A God worthy of your eternal love wouldn’t judge you for who you love while you’re here.”



I hope this day will come soon.

P.S. the title of this book is a clever one!!!

"This was a week ago," he whispers.

When he looks up at me with tears in his eyes, he adds,

"No one has spoken to me in a week."

“I’m attracted to guys, and I’m with you right now, but I’m not gay. That’s a different choice, and I’m not choosing that path.”

“Like, you’re not gay, you’re not straight, you’re . . . you,” he says, leaning forward to catch my eyes. “I’m not gay, I’m not straight, I’m me."
