REVIEW: Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo - 5 stars

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 11:00 AM 0 comments
Title: Last Night at the Telegraph Club
Genre: Young Adult LGBT Historical
Author: Malinda Lo
Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can’t remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club.

America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father—despite his hard-won citizenship—Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.
Publisher: Dutton
Publication: January 19th 2021
Cover Rating: 5/5
Reading Format: Owned Hardcover


I really enjoyed this book!! The author did a great job of describing some of the hardships and roadblocks that not only the LGBTQ community faced then, but also Chinese Americans. I really recommend adding this to your list of “summer reads”!

REVIEW: The Ashes of Hope and Hunger by Dawn Christine Jonckowski - 5 stars

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 11:00 AM 0 comments
Title: The Ashes of Hope and Hunger
Genre: Sci-Fi
Author: Dawn Christine Jonckowski
Synopsis:
“Once again, man tries to play God and fails. Do we ever learn?”After their rescue from Tav, Dameia and Hyam are caught up in a whirlwind of media and diplomatic events as they attempt to adjust to their new home planet. Everything from the clothing to the weak heat of the single sun is acutely foreign; still, Dameia is determined to fit in. But at each turn, society’s subtle biases push back: The pair is deeply alien to Earth, despite Hyam’s humanity, and they wonder if this is the right world for them. Not all Tavarians are struggling to belong. Xanth, a healer, quickly finds work at a local Health Center, offering virtual care for innumerable Global Alliance citizens across the stars. But his compassion for one patient, Arba, risks entangling him in an affair with far-reaching consequences: Unbeknownst to Xanth, Arba is the newest wife of Katuu, ruler of the plague-riddled Alliance planet Vepo, and she carries what Katuu hopes will be a second heir to the planet’s rapidly dwindling population. Despite most Tavarians barely coping on Earth and Vepo continually requesting aid for survival, the unexpected mission to Tav has left the Global Alliance more concerned with getting back on track—and on budget—with its plans to colonize the galaxies. The celebrated Captain Woolsey and her crew receive orders to the inhospitable ice planet Avalon VI next, according to plan. Faced with leaving Dameia and Hyam on Earth and ignoring Vepo’s plight to captain her crew toward certain death, Woolsey may instead break the rules for the first time in her illustrious career. Because allowing the Global Alliance to ignore the worlds it already controls comes at a price. And the cost could span galaxies.
Publisher: Amazon KDP
Publication: March 23rd 2021
Cover Rating: 5/5
Reading Format: Owned Paperback

This book was such an amazing follow-up to the first book! I loved the whole story! I loved that we saw more of Captain Woolsey (I’m biased I know 
😂) I loved the continuation of Hyam and Damiea’s relationship. I loved the new characters of Arba and Xanth as well as others. Also, there was one character death that had me screaming with joy! You’ll understand if you read it! 🤣🤣 I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for book 3!
