Lost Sometimes – 2. You can probably guess how that ones goes. With that all being said, there were a few towards the end that I couldn’t get through very well. Do you think it works — are more people likely to buy books like this one in February? Parents need to know that there are stories about gay and lesbian couples, as well as straight couples, in this romantic collection.

If I remember correctly there was one lesbian story and it ended badly for the couple, whereas there were plenty of gay and hetero couples and idk there could have been more lesbians is all I’m saying. Stay up to date on new reviews. We are experiencing technical difficulties.

How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan – Review – Peter Bunzl

Suffice to say, I’m a conventional kind of girl I guess: Original, rather mysterious and thought-provocking.

So, if you like romance give this one a go, if not maybe learn from my mistakes and stay clear. There is some swearing, and some graphic sexual tthey, especially in one story about two teen boys who “were boyfriends, but Here are 18 stories, all about love, all kinds of love.

A cute selection of short love stories of all types. Hell of predictable, but it dealt with brothers and dance. This book was a collection of short stories. The narrator was the only one we really got to know, and he was a gay stereotype, the kind you’d think Levithan would want to avoid.


Practice was different now. From the happy-ever-after to the unrequited, they explore all ohw varied aspects of the emotion otger has, at some time, turned us all inside out and upside down. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

This review appears on Happy Indulgence.

See how we rate. I read that and I thought, wow this is a well-put together story and had great characters and a central relationship. Another free-verse poem, and although I didn’t like this one quite as much, it was still well-written.

But I got a little bit of a surprise to find out the first story was about a gay boy. Full review to follow! The Romantic Inclinations was a good one too! Flirting With Waiters – 2.

Levithan’s work is normally sort of fun and light-hearted, and that was present here, but it felt strained, like Levithan felt like it was obligatory. Quotes from How They Met, and Here are 18 stories, all about love, and about all kinds of love. I’m making it seem like I disliked this anthology overall, but I actually liked quite a few of the stories.
