This is more of a Thanksgiving Romance, although there is a Christmas scene. But if you are at all into holiday romances, you should give this one a shot.
Kayliegh wants to bring a girl to dinner to shock and upset her conservative, fundamentalist aunt. She finds her via Craigslist and the pink haired, tattooed Brooke could not be more perfect for her plans. Except they are immediately attracted to each other and a funny flirtation turns into something else!
The family dynamics are funny and infuriating, by turns. The flirtation between Brooke and Kayliegh is charming and when the relationship turns steamy, it is off-the-charts hot. For a novella, there is good character building and relationship development. Sure, things happen fast, but it was believable. Plus there are cute dogs! Just go read it. 4 stars.
Below is a lovingly compiled list of books about girls who love girls that have happy or hopeful endings! The list currently has 106 entries and spans multiple genres. It’s alphabetized by author, and links go to the books’ Goodreads pages. Recommendations are welcome!
I do! Check out Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera, Vow of Celibacy by Erin Judge, Run by Kody Keplinger, A Line in the Dark by Malinda Lo, This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp, The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz, and Dreadnought by April Daniels are good ones to start with!

“You’ll see too, one day. Once you grow older, someone else will be waiting to take your place, someone younger and prettier than you. I knew that day was approaching for me. I knew even when you were still a child. So why am I so surprised to learn that I’m being thrown aside? Why am I always so surprised?”
I’ve been wondering if any of you would be interested if I made a book club where we would all read a book per month and then just discuss it (no obligation of course). My current idea is making a discord server where anyone could join and participate.
I think it would be a really positive thing because it might motivate people to leave reviews on wlw books (which are low in numbers in comparison to others but so important for authors) and it would give people a place to discuss the books freely (if they’re closeted/unable to do so otherwise).
Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated! I will probably make a more coherent post this weekend and let you all suggest books we could read so let me know what you think!
