Wishlist Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Pen to Paper Blog (a bookish blog you should totally check out) sharing books that you absolutely can’t wait to add to your shelf!
This month has been full of some really amazing releases so far. Like, there’s so many I’m completely lost on where to start on which one I want MOST. Curses!
But I think what I’m wishing on the most is . . .
ABOUT THIS BOOK: In his follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Every Day, David Levithan, co-author of bestsellers Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, tells the based-on-true-events story of Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record—all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites—all while the kissing former couple tries to figure out their own feelings for each other.I actually won this early September courtesy of Random House’s Random Buzzers (though I have yet to receive it.) At first, while the story sounded absolutely adorable, I never really been interested in it. But somehow, I found myself navigating my way through a ton of David Levithan books lately (Nick and Nora’s Ultimate Playlist; Everyday; Will Grayson, Will Grayson etc. etc.) I didn’t really notice Two Boys Kissing was among them, and I somehow managed to completely brushed past it. I never actually read any direct LGBT books on my shelf, so I’m really ecstatic to add this on to my collection. Just the story itself and what it’s based on sounds inspiring and sweet-hearted, and I can’t wait to read either!
