Because of that, I’m going to try and keep it light this month.

1. The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde

Brightsiders

Saw this at my library, and decided to pick it up. I’m always down for some bi girl rep, so when I saw my library had this on the YA New Release shelf, I wanted to snag it. I guess it’s also a way to distract myself until Queens of Geek comes back so I can read that, too.
