Mini-Review Compilation #2

A Safe Girl to Love
cw: sexual assault, kink

This was such a lovely collection of short stories, focusing on trans women. Most of the stories had a pretty emotional impact on me, which says a lot about the writing. Each story is fairly quick to get through. While I enjoyed it, a lot of the characters kind of melded together for me and I felt that there was too much of an emphasis on a certain kind of sexuality (almost all of the sex was very rough, which could be triggering for some). I dropped one star for those two reasons.

Rosemary’s Baby
cw: sexual assault

I put this on my TBR after reading a post about it written by Bernadette @ The Spine Cracker and it did NOT disappoint. Bernadette recommended not reading the blurb beforehand, so I went in cold and I’d like to echo that suggestion. Do NOT read the blurb beforehand! It definitely gives away part of the plot and, imo, is a better read if you don’t know. Anyway, it was a great book, spooky without being scary scary. It actually pulled me out of a bit of a reading slump, which was great! Drags on a bit occasionally, but overall very good.

Gena/Finn
cw: trauma, grief

Wow, this was adorable!! Definitely a quick, cute read (that gets surprisingly deep). It’s told entirely through blog posts, IMs, letters, etc. so I’d recommend reading a physical copy, as it didn’t translate well into an ebook version imo! My qualms are really just that it felt a little rushed in places and the end felt abrupt to me. [SPOILER] Finn, Charlie, and Gena are canonically a triad and no one can convince me otherwise, sorry not sorry!! [/SPOILER]

  1. Thank you for the shout out Sarah! I am so happy that you enjoyed Rosemary’s Baby. I am so jealous of your ability to go into it entirely blind. I sadly knew all about it before I read it.
