I’ve been trying to read a bunch of contemporary YA books in the last couple of weeks to be able to make recommendations to a young family member. There are a few things that might not be best for her to read about right now due to some personal things happening, so I want to be able to hand over these books with confidence.
This week I’m reading ‘I Think I Love You’ by Auriane Desombre, which seems like a really cute LGBTQ rom-com that just might be a great addition to the pile of books I’ll be giving them.
“I delete emails from school, unread, on principle (especially the ones they send out at the start of summer break), but I’ve already read this one four times.”I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre
My impressions: Oh my gosh, I’m definitely too old for this book. My school never sent out emails to students because most of us didn’t even have a computer at home, let alone an email address. Summer meant literally no contact from school until you went in to get your class schedule. Anyway, I’m curious to see what kind of email could be so interesting that anyone would read it 4 times. I barely read emails once! LOL
Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.
I really like the sound of that “Book Beginnings on Fridays”.
It’s a fun weekly prompt! I’ve been trying to track down some new ones to participate in. 🙂

I really like that excerpt you shared and want to know more about this e-mail the protagonist keeps re-reading. I hope your family member enjoys this one if they read it. I may have to check it out myself!
E-mail wasn’t used when I was a student either, although, as a parent of a student who just spent a year in virtual school, we had our fair share of e-mails. LOL
I hope you have a great weekend!
I often get tasked with making recommendations to young adults/pre-teens. I was a high school librarian so I didn’t read much middle grade stuff. So I find myself checking ouot books, thinking, why am I reading this again? Ha! My Friday Quotes are here
