    I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BOOK! ???? I requested this book from Netgalley for one reason - it is branded as an LGBT version of Grease! Instantly I thought, 'How can that not be great?!'. I was lucky enough to get this on a wish and oh boy was I right!...

    This book is all kinds of adorable!! "It was late afternoon, on the very last Wednesday of August, when I realized Disney had been lying to me for quite some time about Happily Ever Afters. Because, you see, I was four days into mine, and my prince was nowhere to be found. Gone...

    "It'll get easier. That's the beautiful thing about the universe. It puts you through trials, but it never gives you anything you can't handle. We grow from these things." there are many reasons this could have earned a lower rating from me - not my ki...

    3 stars Only Mostly Devastated was such a cute read! I loved that it was inspired by Grease and the main character Ollie had a great voice. The audio book was fun to listen to and I never wanted to hit pause. Ollie has a summer romance with a boy named Will. Ollie is from Calif...

    You know what? I just simply adored this. I'm heart-eyes over it, but also in awe, because it tackled so many complex and serious topics AND managed to be an adorkable romcom that squished the air out of my lungs so many times. No, no, I genuinely had to put it down and scream at ...

    Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets Clueless, inspired by Grease. With all of the many, many dramatics of the straight friends in the book, I definitely got a "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda" vibe from the story, no doubt. But "Clueless" was extre...

    Summer Love or Summer Fling? That is what happens between Ollie and Will. Summer comes to an end and Will has officially ghosted Ollie. On the other hand Ollie has a lot of things going on in his life. His parents spring on him that they are staying in Town to help with his dying aunt ...

    I was sent this book as an advance copy by the publisher for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. 4.5 stars I was taken by surprise by this queer Grease retelling, not because I didn't expect it to be good (it sounded amazing) but because it kept trying to an...

    I really, really enjoyed this!! I do wish we had gotten a little more show and a little less tell in regards to the romance between Ollie and Will, but I still really enjoyed this and I could NOT put it down. Not only was it super fun and romance-y, but it also had some depth and reall...

    I'll admit that this didn't end up being the most amazing wonderful adorable hilarious queer YA rom-com I expected it to be back when it was first announced. But I think, based on how insane my expectations were, this was still a pretty good read; even if, despite the ages of...

    Am I humming "Summer Nights" while I write this review? Possibly. Yes. Only Mostly Devastated is a story about two boys who spend the summer falling in love only to have to say goodbye at the end of it all. But wait. SURPRISE! Ollie shows up as the new student at Will&...

    I watched Grease in preparation, and it was so bad I new this book can only be better. Boy, I was right! It's a quick and enjoyable read, while deals with grief in a fucking realistic way. Representation on point. I love when gay stories have this quote, ?I wasn?t even ...

    ?????.75 stars Only Mostly Devastated was everything I never knew I needed. Grease, but make it gay? Sign me up! If you know the general storyline of Grease, this story begins in a very similar way. Ollie and Will had a summer fling but never expected to see each other...

    Cute, queer, and oh-so-diverse, this might be my favorite book I?ve read this year thus far. Only Mostly Devastated is essentially a gay retelling of Grease. And, listen, I love that musical as much as the next theatre/choir nerd, but seriously, I love this book even more. It takes a...

    Hmmm, I'm at a bit of a loss with this one. For two reasons: 1. The blurb. When a blurb touts a book as "This Bestseller and That Bestseller meet T'Other Bestseller!!!" it passes my glazed eyes without registering. Because usually that's marketing bullshi...

    {"The catch is, girls have to ask guys," Matt added. Huh. Seemed pretty heteronormative. And what if a girl wanted to ask a girl? Or otherwise.} THIS BOOK! It is such an important story and brings up such valid topics, such as the quote above. Honestly, I went into...

    4 stars ? When I saw this book's cover, I knew I had to pick it up immediately. That feeling only grew when I read its synopsis which really reminded me of Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda, which is a novel I enjoyed. I think that if you loved that book, you will definitely lo...

    2.5 Stars Well sometimes you and a book just don't click and that's okay. I enjoyed it well enough but didn't quite get the 'heart eyes emoji' feels that I expected when I read the synopsis. It kind of meandered along to a satisfactory conclusion but at no p...
