Hi folks, welcome to a social distancing edition of #77Saturday. I hope you are all staying safe and washing your hands.
How to play:
- Find a book – it can be your current read or anything that takes your fancy.
- Turn to page 77 or 77% on an ereader.
- Find a snippet you like.
- Share it and link back to AusYABloggers
Today’s snip is from Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi.
“She asked me not to say ‘hell’.”
“And what did you do?”
“I replaced it with another word that she found even more offensive.”
Papa let out a low whistle. “You are screwed.”
I should love this book. It’s queer, the characters are diverse. But it’s a romance and I. Just. Can’t. This is not the book’s fault. I am so hyper aromantic that having read the first hundred pages that the tropes make me itchy and it all seems ridiculous. Again – not the book’s fault.
If you like queer books, especially lesbian romances you should definitely pick this up and give it a shot. I will be over here in aromantic corner.
