Hello and happy Saturday. We all know that I don’t have guilty pleasures when it comes to books, but there are some topics that might be controversial and that I love. I, for example, and for some strange reason, really like to read about conversion camps. Look, I don’t know what it is and I know it is completely wrong, but those stories always feature someone rebellious fighting for their freedom and a hidden love story, and that does it for me. That’s probably why I picked a book from the series A Southern Thing by Sara York. I also might have gotten that book for free or really cheap. Here’s how I’m doing with the series:
I read this between July 2nd and July 3rd, 2016 and gave it three stars. I think this is the only book in the series that actually takes place in a conversion camp. In 2016, a three-star rating was bad, and I can understand it. This is a novel featuring two gay men, but it was written by a woman, so the “own voices” element isn’t there. There are definitely better things out there, is all I’m going to say.
There are no books in this series that I own at the moment.
Is there a series, preferably own voices, that features a queer romance? Let me know in the comments below.
Love, Miss Camila
