BOOK REVIEW- Love in the time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block [LGBT Book Series]

Posted on: February 3, 2015

Welcome to Part 4 (part 1, part 2, part 3)

This book is different from the previous three in that those were LGBT Books, in the sense that the main conflict is somebody being non straight, non cis, and/or gender nonconforming. They focus solely on the struggle of being LGBTQIA and little else, and tend to take place in a school setting.

This book is a short fantasy novel that happens to have a boatload of diverse, interesting characters, with moments of introspection and discussions of sexuality. It is rich, with great world building. Post-apocalyptic LA sets the stage for a loosy-goosy, quite creative retelling of Odysseus. That being said, a little prerequisite knowledge of the myth as well as a suspension of belief and need for rationality help out. It will take you on an adventure so long as you don’t try to muddle over the details quite so literally. (I am a very literal person)

It’s only downfall, in my opinion, is its brevity. Luckily, the author has plenty more for you to check out.

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
