I’ve always loved Dani Núñez, and I have the receipts to prove it right here and here. I didn’t pay as much attention to Gigi in Season 1 (shame on me) so when I started watching Season 2; I knew I was there for Dani but I never expected how much I would fall in love with Gigi and the buildup of their relationship.
I can say without a doubt the reason I watched the Season 2 of The L Word was to watch Dani and Gigi’s relationship. For once, the show did a slow burn instead of having them sleeping together after 0.2 seconds, and I loved every second. The build up, the anticipation, waiting eagerly every episode to see what happened between them. It was amazing. And after they got together, we got amazing communication and soft moments, along with a couple of steamy ones.
Since I can’t get enough of these two, I’ve been watching their scenes again and freaking out about all the little things that build their relationship. Lucky for you, I also can’t shut up about them and plan on sharing my opinions.
The series finale of The Bold Type aired last Wednesday, June 30 of 2021, on Freeform. It was the last point of a rollercoaster ride that started in 2016 and gave us what was, in my opinion, the best wlw poc ship in the history of TV but that during five seasons also disappointed and enraged us because of some of the choices the network or writers made. Kadena was great, but it could had been even greater if they were given the care and attention they deserved.
After so long, after so many things that happened, so many times where the ship and both Kat and Adena as individual characters weren’t treated with the respect they deserved, the finale had only one last lowest possible bar we hoped they passed but weren’t sure if they would: To give them a happy ending. They did. It was like 20 seconds and at the last minute, but they did. And today I’m here to celebrate the good. We’ve talked enough about the bad before, and as a goodbye I want to remember the happiness this show and ship gave me since 2016.
After watching the L Word Season 2 trailer, my Dani Nunez obsession is full in back force. I can’t wait for the show to be back and the trailer looks very promising. I mean: Dani looking as hot as always, Bette + Gigi, more of Tess, Angie puppy love being adorable. But most of all, I can’t wait to enjoy the plot…
I feel like we don’t have enough New Adult sapphic stories around what is a shame because I love New Adult stories so it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read Catch and Cradle, a fun New Adult F/F romance set in Halifax that takes us behind the scenes of their UNS Women’s Lacrosse team to watch Becca, the teams captain, and Hope, one of their star players, come together.
I loved all the layers we saw of Hope and Becca. The book did a great job showing us their hopes, dreams, motivations and fears. That made it easy to root for them and their relationship. We can see how they are perfect for each other, but there’s also room for them to grow as individuals.
The story is sweet but also sexy and as a sports lover it was great to get a glimpse into a sport I’ve never paid much attention to like lacrosse.
The One To Hold Your Hand tells is the story of Reese and Bette. Their friendship, their falling out and their second chance at love. The sentence that gives name to the book was used several times trough the book, and every time it pulled at my heartstrings.
I loved the way we got to see Reese and Bette long story together, their evolution from childhood friends to teenage loves and their reconnection as adults.
Besides the romance, the favorite part of this book for me was the way it handled the sensitive topic of loss and grief.
I would have loved to see a bit more of Reese and Bette after the get back together as adults, most of the book as focused on their journey as childhood friends but an extra couple chapters of them as adults at the end would had been nice.
Fatou and Kieu My: The German Sapphic Ship That Stole Our Hearts
If you still don’t know who Fatou Jallow and Kieu My Vu are, you are missing out. If you enjoyed their love story for the past few weeks and now are devastated over the sixth season of Druck that had them at their center, and thinking about the possibility of not seeing them again for a long time, I understand. No matter the case, this post only goal is to share this ship with the world and enjoy some videos and pictures from them to make their absence less hard.
Flipped is a delicious look at the behind the scenes of a popular HGTV-style reality show, full of drama, passion, and love.
As a big fan of reality shows and celebrity love interests, this book caught my eye from the premise. Molly wins a competition to have her house flipped by famous married duo Flick and Kim, and of course sparks fly the minute she meets Flick in person, but secrets on both ends force them to stay apart.
I love comics and graphic novels, one about a Queer, brown, latina? The moment I saw this, I jumped at the chance to read it. I’ve had the original novel on my radar for a while but haven’t gotten around to read it so I can’t compare between the two, but I don’t think is necessary. I believe every format adds something to a story and can be an avenue for different people to find the work. With Gabby Rivera’s experience writing for Marvel’s America it only makes sense to offer Juliet Takes a Breath as a graphic novel, and I’m glad they do.
This book aimed at kids 5-7 years old and coming December 2020 is a great, sweet read, and a beautifully illustrated work. Not only does it handle topics of acceptance, homophobia, traditions, but also gives kids a clear acceptance and love message.
When I saw this gorgeous book was available for review at NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read it. I’ve been a voracious reader since I was 4 years old. I would go to the library every day since I started school, even though people didn’t believe me when I said I could actually read. That’s why I kind of have a soft spot for kids’ books.
