Happy Pride, From Me To You

Happy Pride! For me, this is the second Pride that I’ve really felt apart of. Before that, it’s always been kind of in the background for me. I just wasn’t as aware as I am now. It’s also the second Pride since I’ve realized I’m queer. So, I decided to talk about it a bit and how the bookish community has helped me.

Reverie by Ryan La Sala

*Spoiler free*

Reveries are worlds born from a person’s private fantasies, and once they manifest they can only be unraveled by bringing their conflicts to resolution. Reveries have rules and plots, magic and monsters, and one wrong step could twist the entire thing into a lethal, labyrinthine nightmare. Unraveling them is dangerous work, but it’s what Kane and The Others do. Or did, until one of The Others purged Kane of his memories. But now Kane is back, and solving the mystery of his betrayal is the only way to unite his team and defeat reality’s latest threat: Poesy, a sorceress bent on harvesting the reveries for their pure, imaginative power. But what use might a drag queen sorceress have with a menagerie of stolen reveries? And should Kane, a boy with no love for a team that betrayed him, fight to stop her, or defect to aid her? 

I’d seen this book here and there, but didn’t know much about it. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and gave me the push to find out more! It sounded really interesting and I really wanted to give it a shot. So, when I had the chance to get an ARC at BookCon, I took it. (Also, the author is wonderful and hilarious.)

Oh wow, it’s still so weird to think that we’re in the second half of 2019. It’s almost, kind of, close to the end of June. That’s so weird! But that just means I get to talk about the books I’m looking forward to in the coming months! Let’s see if I can come up with ten.
