Blurb:

Ten years ago, Peter Pan left Neverland to grow up, leaving behind his adolescent dreams of boyhood and resigning himself to life as Wendy Darling. Growing up, however, has only made him realize how inescapable his identity as a man is. But when he returns to Neverland, everything has changed: the Lost Boys have become men, and the war games they once played are now real and deadly. Even more shocking is the attraction Peter never knew he could feel for his old rival, Captain Hook-and the realization that he no longer knows which of them is the real villain.

Hello, yes, this is indeed a Peter Pan retelling, and I. Am. So. Happy. I adore Peter Pan, so when I heard of Peter Darling I knew I had to have it. Even better, there is a romance with Captain James Hook, and I am 110% obsessed with it. So, without further ado, let’s get into it~ (cisclaimer: I am a cisgender queer female, so please let me know if I said anything wrong regarding gender and descriptions so I may correct myself) Continue reading Book Review: Peter Darling by Austin Chant

Goodreads Blurb:

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school in Lambertville, Tennessee. Like any other girl, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret. There’s a reason why she transferred schools for her senior year, and why she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

And then she meets Grant Everett. Grant is unlike anyone she’s ever met—open, honest, kind—and Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself…including her past. But she’s terrified that once she tells Grant the truth, he won’t be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It’s that she used to be Andrew.

This book was mentioned in my Diverse Books Tag, and since then I’ve been trying to expand my reading materials! I’m honestly glad I read it, it gave me a look into a world that I’ve almost had zero experience with. Amanda was a very sweet and hopeful character, and I rooted for her so hard throughout the book.
