Out Now : Queer we go again ! by Saundra Mitchell ARC Review

Out Now: Queer We Go Again!

Welcome to this book review,
I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

This book is a multifaceted book, as an anthology not every story is my favourite but there are some gems in there that are definitely worth reading.
I really enjoyed the supernatural aspect of it and the wholesomeness of the stories. Some make you laugh, others tear you apart but it is needed, I definitely wish this had been around when I was in highschool.
While this anthology is not as strong or hard hitting as the first one, some of these stories are worth reading again, again and again. Yes, some will feel a little more on the "okay but not WOW".
One thing that I hope will be changed for the final copy is the line about the "symptoms of demisexuality" which is a term only used for that identity which is part of my own identity as a bi-demisexual person.
I feel that it may lead to some teens feeling like a sickness or that it's just a 'symptom' and not a real identity as other identities or make them feel alienated which is not the point of this anthology.

Apart from that a story that I would skip altogether from reading is the one called " Player One Fight" as someone who had a stalker, this is exactly what this story is.  A romanticized version of a queer stalker story about how he's in love and the other guy just doesn't realize he's his boyfriend yet. Overall gave me flashbacks about a really awful experience where a guy told me I was the "woman of his life" and how I "did not understand we were meant to be together".

Overall good anthology if not for those two stories that left a bad taste in my mouth.
3.5/5 stars.
