ABC Book Challenge ·G·

I saw this challenge back at The Bookish Chick and decided to give it a try (here’s to hoping I don’t forget in a couple of days)

The challenge goes like this:

  • I’ll do it once a week
  • Each post is dedicated to a letter and so I have to name memorable books I’ve read containing the letter
  • I’ll take a page of thebookishchick and also add books from my TBR

WEEK 7

WoW·Soft on Soft

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Usually I’d wait until a book is published to see the reviews but there are some that I can’t help but be hyped for.

Today we are all about fat girls in love: One of them is a black woman and the other a middle eastern arab. There’s talk of makeup (wich I know nothing about) and fluffy goodness! It’s gonna be soft

Soft on Soft by Em Ali 

June Bana might post nearly daily makeup looks that gain thousands of likes but Real Life June has built a wall behind which she exists with her two cats.
But with messy feelings getting in a way of an early hermit life, June begins to realize that she wants more. She wants model/actress, Sunshine Reincarnated Selena Clarke. It doesn’t hurt that Selena is amazing with cats and quiets down June’s anxiety to bearable levels.
June is given the choice of facing her anxieties about relationships to gain not only a girlfriend but also a better understanding of how far she’d go for love. 
But would she take it? Would she leave her comfort zone for something softer?

Contemporary fluffy piece where one homebody and one extrovert make one hell of a love story.

Content warning for a discussion of a passed-away parent in chapter 2 and a depiction of a panic attack in chapter 8. Both are from the POV of the MC and are #ownvoices experiences.

Expected publication: September 10th 2018
