What was the last book you bought because of social media?โ  ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโ  I've been seeing BOYFRIEND MATERIAL by @quicunquevult all over twitter so I had to buy a copy. I'll be reading it after I finish my current read and I'm so excited! Here's the synopsis:โ  ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโ  Luc O'Donnell is tangentially–and reluctantly–famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.โ  .โ  .โ  To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship…and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he's never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.โ  .โ  .โ  But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don't ever want to let them go.โ  ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโ  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #boyfriendmaterial #alexishall

{AD|gifted} Today is my turn on the bookstagram tour for THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS, an incredible multiverse adventure. Itโ€™s an intelligent, thought-provoking and timely dissection of race, class, poverty and identity, questioning how our circumstances shape us. ๐ŸŒŒ The main character Cara was complex and unforgettable. Sheโ€™s a survivor whoโ€™s unafraid to be pragmatic and put herself first, with an ambiguous moral code. I loved the slow-burn w|w romance between Cara and her watcher, Dell. Their relationship is hindered by a class divide and a buried secret from the past. ๐ŸŒŒ With a fantastic supporting cast of memorable characters, this book also has great diverse rep. Cara herself is Black and bisexual, and itโ€™s harrowing to discover that traversers (inter-dimensional travellers) are often ethnic minorities due to a low life expectancy meaning theyโ€™re more likely to have already died on other earths. ๐ŸŒŒ The plot is gripping, well-paced, and tense, keeping me fully invested from beginning to end. The premise was ambitious but the author successfully pulled it off – itโ€™s hard to believe this is a debut novel. Iโ€™d highly recommend buying or borrowing a copy of this incredible sci-fi as itโ€™s sure not to disappoint. ๐ŸŒŒ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #MicaiahJohnson #TheSpaceBetweenWorlds #pridebooktours
