I haven’t done Fave of the Month since Molly was a regular here on the blog. I miss her recommendations, but I know I can just bug her if I want those. My goal with bringing this feature back was to share a book I read that wasn’t an ARC that I read in the month and adored the hell out of, and what you all to check out. Let’s see what January’s pick is!
Pulp by Robin Talley (Published November 13th 2018 by Harlequin Teen)
This was my first Robin Talley book and also the first book I finished in 2019. What I loved about Pulp is that it’s a dual-layered story, one taking place in present day and the other during the 1950’s. This book is a wonderful exploration of lesbian pulp fiction, as well as just how the rights of the LGBT community have changed since 1950. I loved reading both perspectives and felt instant connections to Abby and Janet. This chunk book has a lot of humour, as well as a lot of depth as well. This is very much a character focused story sprinkled with tons of research in it. I look forward to checking out a few other books by Robin Talley now, and I am so glad I grabbed Pulp and gave it a shot.
