Can we talk about that magnificently stunning cover for a second? Staring at the cover made me dream about the universe and I'm just utterly in love with it. I love the font and the colours.. it's such an eyecatcher.
Before I read the book I only knew that it was a LGBT+ book, nothing else.
I think it is definitely important to know that the plot isn't set in modern day but in 1987. I did not know that before and had therefore a bit different expectation.
I wanted to love the book so bad because everyone on Bookstagram adored it and also because I'm very much into the LGBT+ topic and was very excited to read that book there…
