Waiting on Wednesday - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place to showcase a book we’re really looking forward to with bated breath! A new release in our favorite series, an exciting new title from a favorite author…

 Waiting on Wednesday #59

I found today’s waiting on Wednesday title while I was browsing Netgalley… What We Left Behind by Robin Talley looks so good, and it will be released on October 27th. I really think that books on important subjects like being queer or not being sure is really important. When these books are well done, readers can really walk a mile in the shoes of a character whose life is completely and utterly different from their own life, and that is why this kind of diversity in books is so important!

What We Left Behind follows a teen couple—Gretchen, who identifies as a lesbian, and Toni, who identifies as genderqueer—as they struggle to stay together during their first year in college, despite the growing rift caused by distance and Toni’s shifting gender identity.

  1. I haven’t seen that one, but it sounds really good. I agree, when a book can make you see different problems and issues from someone else’s point of view, it helps you grow as a person. I love to read books like this just for that reason if nothing else, but this sounds like a good story too! Great find! Thanks for sharing! Here’s my WoW. Happy reading!
