    This book makes me so happy! There was only one story that I found confusing and didn't care for, but overall I loved this book. Favourites were: Burnt Umber by MacKenzi Lee, The Dresser & the Chambermaid by Robin Talley, Molly's Lips by Dahlia Adler, Every Shade of Red by Elli...

    This was a blessing to read. This is a historical literature short story collection, showcasing LGBTQIAP+ characters. And all of the authors that contributed to this collection are LGBTQIAP+ and that is something that I don?t even have words for. I am forever thankful that Saundr...

    Rosa was a summer girl, and I was a winter girl, but that fall we made magic. You know, back when I was in my early teens, I once heard this old guy say ?there weren?t all these queers around when I was younger?. Oh, but there were, sir. And long long before that, too. All...

    4.5 - This was such a great collection of short stories about queer teens throughout history. While I loved this collection as a whole there were a few stories I wasn?t as crazy about. Generally speaking I?m not a huge fan of historical fiction, so I definitely gravitated more towa...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy via Edelweiss for review purposes. I really enjoyed All Out. I will admit that I previously hadn't heard about this anthology, but I saw someone talking about it on twitter and heard that it was on Edelweiss and then I went to request it, and luck...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews. 3.74/5 I have a very specific number for my rating, don?t I? That?s because I totaled up all of my individual ratings to see how it evened out over the whole book. And I think that basically describes my thoughts about i...

    Probably the most beautiful anthology I've ever read. Bar none. Representation matters, we all know that but so does the type of representation. Of course we need literature to be honest about the hardships of not being a cis heterosexual individual, but occasionally some positiv...

    #Prideathon This anthology was a remarkable accomplishment, collecting stories set all over the world (though mostly US) featuring queer teen protagonists. As with all anthologies there are stories that I didn't like quite as much but in general the quality and consistency was exce...

    I was excited to read this anthology from the moment it was announced, and it did not disappoint! I rated each story individually, and on average I gave this book 4.05 stars, which is pretty brilliant for an anthology as they can be quite hit or miss! I loved that the stories followed ...

    This was a very fun read! I enjoyed all the stories and is definitely a great way to not only discover new lgbt+ authors but also read such an amazingly diverse group of stories that are different from one another and tell such beautiful stories. There are some overlapping themes in so...

    This anthology was so delightful! I mean, with a concept like ?historical gays? you can?t really go too far wrong - and almost all of the stories were happy or at least hopeful, which was an extra bonus! I mean, I wasn?t SUPER thrilled about how many of them were absolutely not...

    Listen, I?ve been anticipating this anthology for months now, but this was so much better than I expected - I want to put this down as the best anthology I have ever read, and the ratings support that. Of the seventeen stories in this book, I gave nine five stars [holy shit], three f...

    how I rate anthologies: in-depth thoughts about each story first, then my thoughts on the anthology as a whole Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore: 5 stars What a brilliant way to start this anthology. The only story set in a non-Western country, Roja is the story of a romance between a ...

    This is not perfect. With 15 different authors, it is impossible to like every single story, every writing style and every plot. You might even hate some. There might be some technical flaws or you disliked the US/Europe-centrism. But. The feeling you get while reading a story knowin...
