Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers ARC Book Review and BLOG TOUR !


Welcome ! As always a disclaimer: My thoughts are my own and the ARC in no way affected my opinion.

TW: mental health, self-harm, homophobia, racism.

NOW the good stuff ! This book is about found families, love and acceptance of one's-self. When I read the blurb for this book I was automatically intrigued, it sounded just right up my alley. It is after all Queer and if that is not something I look for into books, I don't know what is. As a bisexual woman myself, I love good representation, I love when we get amazing books with a sweet queer romance that makes me feel things and this made me feel for the characters and what was happening to them.  I related to our main character, the dilemmas that come with having an immigrant family (my mother's side of the family) and the struggles that come with that when being Queer. 

I loved getting that funny, charming and yet deeply touching tale of two women getting drunk in Vegas and getting married without knowing one another. This book had the perfect mix of angst, funny and romance. It is about being true to yourselves and becoming who you were meant to be. While the romance is a big part of the book it is not the main focus, the true subject of this book is Grace, a brilliant black lesbian woman with a PHD in astrology who is finding herself and finally allowing herself to be happy.

The author approached the delicate subjects she touched on in such an organic way, Grace's anxiety, her struggles and her growth as a person through the book felt natural. I loved the character development and story telling were the true strengths of this novel. the author has a wonderful way with words. Do I want to re-read this book and own it as a physical copy; YES. Do I wish the author would sign a copy YES YES YES.

I loved this book, this is a new favorite and a read that will stay with me long after having finished it. I cannot wait to read the next books this author will be writing. 

5/5 stars
