    Don't mind me over here crying like a little baby. Julie Murphy's books, man- they just make me feel seen! The characters, the tenderness, the open explorations of how to become the person you want to be, the special insights into the challenges of being a (mostly) (somewhat) unapologe...

    I found my first favorite book of the year! I loved Dumplin', but I ADORE Callie & Millie. I kept feeling like they'd end up together, but that is not the case. However, if you go into this expecting a cute enemies to friends story, you won't leave disappointed! ...

    Julie Murphy has run away with my heart yet again. I swear this woman writes stories just for me (ok not really, but damn it feels like it). She?s back, in Clover City, to tell Millie & Callie?s stories. One minute I?m laughing, then the next I?m counting my tears, righ...

    Originally posted on Pretty Little Memoirs. In the sequel to Dumplin', there's Puddin'. (Okay, does the title remind anyone else of Harley Quinn's line?) It's essentially a companion novel to the first that follows some of the supporting characters from the first book. We have these t...

    I liked this but not as much as Dumplin'. Mainly because while I enjoyed Callie and Millie and seeing their different POV's and growth, it was a little jarring switching back and forth from their voices in each chapter. Also it took me a LONG time to really warm up to Callie because I ...

    YAY I FINALLY FINISHED A BOOK THIS MONTH! And it was a good one for sure. I loved seeing the characters from Dumplin? reappear, and I also loved getting to know Millie and Callie better. This book makes me very happy and feel very good about the world and myself. Thanks Julie Murphy!...

    I've been sitting on writing this review for a couple of days because I just don't know how to express my love for this book and Julie Murphy. Puddin' offers so many great aspects and I simply enjoyed all of them. In Puddin' we follow the perspective of Millie, Willowdean's friend f...

    3.5 stars I loved Dumplin? so I knew I would be reading Puddin? when I found out it was happening. And honestly, I was a little let down that it wasn?t the girl romance that cover and synopsis made me think it was. Millie and Callie are okay MCs. Mille is ridiculously pos...

    4.5 stars!!! Puddin? is such a wonderful, feel good YA book. I am a huge fan of Julie Murphys after reading Dumplin?, and now Puddin? and I was lucky enough to meet her this past weekend and get an autographed copy of both books! Eek! This book has two main characters...

    Thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this review copy! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. Body-positive, fat-positive, kick-a** females and a whole lot of wit. This book is an amazing follow up to Dumplin' and I don't want this series to ever, ever end! This is required reading for every moth...

    Love love love love LOVED Millie as a character. She was the sweetest thing ever and I?m so glad I read this. Giving it a 3.5 as well bc it was mega cute, but I feel like it lacked the oooomph to really make me care and give it a 4. So ??? Love love love love LOVED Millie ...

    "If Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood had a baby, it'd be you." "I'm not sure you mean that as a compliment, but I'm going to take that as one, because Luna and Neville forever." As much as I've liked Murphy's previous books, I've never loved them. PUDDIN' is the closest to perf...

    ? 2 / 5 ? Puddin?, while very similar to Dumplin?, did not have the same ?feeling? as its predecessor. At least, that?s my opinion?but feel free to disagree with me on that. I tried not to compare Puddin? to Dumplin?, but the entire time I was reading my brain...

    THIS WAS SO GOOD!!!! Definitely favor this one over Dumplin? by far. I loved how it was from two different perspectives from two completely different people. I loved getting two see how they both collided in each others world! The character growth was phenomenal as well. I really can...

    I have so many feelings about this book and I doubt I will explain them well. I absolutely love the way Julie Murphy writes. Her words are touching, but there is always a lot of humor, too. Her characters are so easy to relate to and I end up loving them. Millie I ador...

    3.5 Stars ?I guess ? well, that?s what stories do. They connect people. Stories change hearts and then hearts change the world.? So this book was sweet and hilarious. Puddin? follows Millie Michalchuk and Callie Reyes after circumstances force the pair together. The girls, ...

    4 stars. I'm simply amazed by how Julie can manage to not only write an excellent story but also incorporate many social issues in one book! Dumplin' and Ramona Blue are some of my favorite contemporary stories because of how they manage to not only make me smile but also how they s...

    I enjoyed Dumplin' when I read it, but I think I liked Puddin' even more. The fact that it focuses on two very different girls and their development into friends just really drew me in. I found myself caring a lot about both Callie and Millie, and enjoying either point of view. I liked...

    I wanted to see more of Millie and Callie but instead I saw the boys get together and their whole story which I really didnt care about. The high school drama was boring and mundane. To predictable and just not enjoyable. I really enjoyed Dumplin but this was a huge let down. ...

    After reading (and loving) Dumplin', I was so excited to hear that there was a sequel in the works. I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed this sequel. Maybe not as much as I enjoyed Dumplin', but close to it. These characters were diverse, relatable, and mostly a good represent...

    3.5 stars I thought this was a pretty nice follow-up to the book Dumplin'. Willowdean isn't the main character in this one, but she does make some appearances so you do get to find out a little bit about what is going on in her life. Callie and Millie were side characters in the pre...

    I have to say, I was disappointed by the sequel. It seemed predictable, and cliche, I felt like half the pages didn't really have meaning or add anything to the story. I really did like Millie, she's adorable in this book though, didn't like Callie, even though it seems you should like...

    This book, was by far, better than Dumplin'. Dumplin' wasn't a bad book by any means, but Puddin' happened to be so much better. Millie was awesome, and I loved her as a narrator. It was nice to see what she was thinking, and how she felt about things. She wanted that journalism spot...
