    First line from my Booklist review: "In Capetta?s dreamy, enigmatic tale, a restless teen finds friendship, love, and self-acceptance among a coven of queer witches." I loved this book, though I think it's not quite what I expected. The writing captures the same dreamy, creepy, po...

    https://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2019/0... I am pretty much here for any and all books about queer teen witches, so enjoyed this for sure. There is kind of a lot going on here, with new girls and magic and spells and storms and romance and a whole murder mystery element. I actually th...

    When Danny and her mother pick a random spot on the map to move to, they have no idea that Danny?s hand with the pin in it was being controlled by others. Now, in a small town in Northern California, the people who guided that selection need her to help them find their lost friend, I...

    Without even having read The Raven Boys, I feel like I can safely make this my answer to "Do you have anything like TRB but wlw," aka a question that comes pretty much every single month to the LGBTQReads Tumblr. Atmospheric, romantic, and wildly gay. I love Amy Rose Capetta. ...

    What I liked: lots of diversity, the premise of the story What Needs Work: The plot and pacing were very erratic, the narrative POV changes every several pages, and the story was not engaging or interesting. Overall, this is a fantastic idea for a book, and the cover is gorgeous,...

    Full review can be found here: http://www.yabookscentral.com/yaficti... THE LOST COAST is lyrical, ethereal, and deliciously haunting. Danny has moved to Northern California with her mother, to a small town called Tempest, where she felt pulled. She has been keeping parts of herself...

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Candlewick Press) in exchange for an honest review. I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4. I had such high hopes for this book, but it ultimately did not live up to my expectations. Let?s start with what...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) The Lost Coast enchants you. It's a gorgeously written book with lines that haunt you. Not to mention that basically everyone in the Grays are diverse (nonbinary, bisexua...

    Many thanks to Candlewick Press for the ARC Initially, I found this a little hard to get invested in. The main pov character, Danny, is difficult to get a bead on initially and it feels like she is keeping the reader at arms length. As you read further, you see that this is delibera...

    Magical ~ Immersive ~ Remarkable tl;dr: This book keeps California weird California is a country in and of itself. The landscapes and the people vary so drastically. There is so much California north of San Francisco, and so much of it is unspoiled. Having spent time there, I was...

    This might be a bit hard for me to review. It's the type of book where not a ton happens, but what happens isn't really what I can write about. I will say right off that it's a very magical book and it surprised me how much I liked it when I sometimes struggle with books like this....

    The Lost Coast is my third Amy Rose Capetta book and, though the genres have varied a lot, I know I can always count on great writing and amazing queer characters. On paper, The Lost Coast is about a group of friends, the Grays, who need Danny's help finding Imogen, who went missin...

    ARC kindly provided by Candlewick Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I've heard nothing but amazing things about Amy Rose Capetta in the past, so I was excited to finally read one of her titles, but this was massively disapp...

    "Everything we do has intention. Most magic doesn't change the world. It's about being in the world. Appreciating its gifts." This was one of those books that started off at a very quick pace but it slowly started to lose its steam toward the middle and went downhill from there. ...

    I am majorly bummed out to say that this book ended up being pretty underwhelming. And the worst part for me is that I think it could have really been something special. I highly appreciated the lgbt+ rep. Diversity was abundant in spades, so kudos to this author for that. And the p...

    Review to come-but this was a good one. "That girl might have magic in her heart, but never forget how much of her power is handed right to her by other people." Imogen is lost and the Grays want her back and so they call for Danny and she listens. Rush, Hawthorn, June, Lelia, an...

    Rounding up from something like a 4.5. I loved a lot of this book, but I didn't feel like I got to know some of the characters very well. That's the heart of my misgivings, but it's a minor thing in this case. The emotional core of this book comes from knowing the group, and not the in...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Candlewick Press for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the most unabashedly queer thing that I've read in a long time. The Lost Cost centers around Danny, who moves with her mother to Tempest, California, and the Greys, a small group of wit...

    Here's what I liked about this book: -Gorgeous cover art (shallow of me, I know, but LOOK at it!) -Moody and atmospheric setting (love the drifting fog and stretching redwoods) -Magical Realism -Diversity (both racial and sexual) that feels natural to the characters, rathe...
