    ?My memory of men is never lit up and illuminated like my memory of women.?? Marguerite Duras A single-subject anthology about the heart's most powerful emotion, edited by Tavi Gevinson. Touching upon love in all its different variations, from ?a devotional to dogs? (Durga...

    Really, really enjoyed this. As expected, I got a lot more out of some essays than others. But this is a perfect collection of stories and essays for teenagers and twenty-somethings. I'll be re-reading it again for sure! Some of the essays were incredibly beautifully written, inspiring...

    To touch on one subject that is written a ton about and to have me come away with new ways of thinking and new perspectives is something to be excited about. Even though this book was about love, a topic I try and avoid it in fiction, I found myself thoroughly enjoying this anthology. ...

    I love the Rookie books and make a point of collecting every single one. Each Rookie Yearbook promised different stories, poems, and comics about various parts of growing up, and the formatting made for an aesthetically-pleasing read. Although I was somewhat excited to see that Rookie ...

    my best friend bought this book for me as a birthday/xmas present, so reading it made me think of her... hm, tbh some of these essays were hit-or-miss. my favorite ones were "centripetal force" (written by mitski!), against "love stories", and "FWD: Letter to leyb" ...

    DISCLAIMER: I did not read every single story in this anthology. My rating is based on the stories I chose to read. I truthfully only picked up this book because of a few specifics authors, and I decided to read the stories that I was excited about. I browsed through the rest of the bo...

    I really, really enjoyed this book. There were a few pieces that I didn't love much, so I couldn't give this 5 stars, but the pieces that I did love I REALLY loved. I've never read a collection of stories like this, and it was so interesting to have different styles and formats all mix...

    For me, the final rating for this book was hard to pin down. I eventually settled on a 3.5. The book is a compilation of different stories coming from different perspectives and in different layouts. I really really love some of them. The works of Jenny Zhang, Florence Welch, Mitski Mi...

    Knew I would love this because I love Rookie, but was even better than I expected! Each essay was super different and covered a wide range of topics related in some way to love, sometimes romantic, but often not as well. Dog eared some pieces that I really enjoyed and pulled some quote...

    As with any anthology, there are strong and weak points. Some of the stories (and poems and comics) hit well and really resonated with me, while others were a total miss. The final story had me so confused with its format that I didn't even finish it. Plenty can be taken from this col...

    Such a thoughtful, well-edited collection of essays, poems, and prose about love. And, goodness, the writing! Favorite pieces: 2 AM AT THE RAMEN SHOP AND I'M TRYING TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Marina Sage Carlstroem Before I Started Writing These Things Directly to You by Tavi Gevinson ...

    I?ll be honest I only bought this book because of the John green and rainbow Rowell part, but it ended up being better than I thought. Rookie on love is basically a jumble of stories from when people were younger or something of the rather, there was some random stuff. I personally l...

    I thought that this book was really cool. I was able to read a bunch of different stories from different authors about the same kind of subjects. The book discussed how to love your self, how to know what a healthy relationship looks like, and poems and stories to lift you up, and make...

    It's hard to rate this book since most of the contributions in this I liked, many I LOVED, and just a few I found tedious or trite. Overall, good collection if you're in a mood or want to mull over emotions/love/life. ...

    3.5 stars, probably. Rookie is known for being age appropriate without pulling its punches and this anthology doesn't fall short. It's wonderfully diverse in form and in contributors. I had a really mixed experience with it, loving some pieces and disliking others, enjoying some for h...

    For me, the final rating for this book was hard to pin down. I eventually settled on a 3.5. The book is a compilation of different stories coming from different perspectives and in different layouts. I really really love some of them. The works of Jenny Zhang, Florence Welch, Mitski Mi...

    Knew I would love this because I love Rookie, but was even better than I expected! Each essay was super different and covered a wide range of topics related in some way to love, sometimes romantic, but often not as well. Dog eared some pieces that I really enjoyed and pulled some quote...

    As with any anthology, there are strong and weak points. Some of the stories (and poems and comics) hit well and really resonated with me, while others were a total miss. The final story had me so confused with its format that I didn't even finish it. Plenty can be taken from this col...

    Such a thoughtful, well-edited collection of essays, poems, and prose about love. And, goodness, the writing! Favorite pieces: 2 AM AT THE RAMEN SHOP AND I'M TRYING TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Marina Sage Carlstroem Before I Started Writing These Things Directly to You by Tavi Gevinson ...

    I?ll be honest I only bought this book because of the John green and rainbow Rowell part, but it ended up being better than I thought. Rookie on love is basically a jumble of stories from when people were younger or something of the rather, there was some random stuff. I personally l...

    I thought that this book was really cool. I was able to read a bunch of different stories from different authors about the same kind of subjects. The book discussed how to love your self, how to know what a healthy relationship looks like, and poems and stories to lift you up, and make...

    It's hard to rate this book since most of the contributions in this I liked, many I LOVED, and just a few I found tedious or trite. Overall, good collection if you're in a mood or want to mull over emotions/love/life. ...

    RookieMag did it again with this lovely collection on love and all its unintelligible forms. The little doodles throughout gave the book a naive and tender feel yet the writings were sophisticated and tugged at the big questions about how to be in love with your self, an other, an idea...

    A killer first book in what I hope will be a series?! Tavi?! I love the collection of voices featured in this book and the sweet but simple layout that makes it easy for readers to engage (the pink illustrations throughout are irresistible). I was hoping for more queer voices, but mayb...

    I'm guessing this is marketed towards younger women/girls, typically in their teens. But I definitely had to pick this one up because of some of the writers featured in it, and of course general Rookie love too. This is surely a lovely compilation of everything love. It features a ...

    I really, really enjoyed this book. There were a few pieces that I didn't love much, so I couldn't give this 5 stars, but the pieces that I did love I REALLY loved. I've never read a collection of stories like this, and it was so interesting to have different styles and formats all mix...

    For me, the final rating for this book was hard to pin down. I eventually settled on a 3.5. The book is a compilation of different stories coming from different perspectives and in different layouts. I really really love some of them. The works of Jenny Zhang, Florence Welch, Mitski Mi...

    Knew I would love this because I love Rookie, but was even better than I expected! Each essay was super different and covered a wide range of topics related in some way to love, sometimes romantic, but often not as well. Dog eared some pieces that I really enjoyed and pulled some quote...

    As with any anthology, there are strong and weak points. Some of the stories (and poems and comics) hit well and really resonated with me, while others were a total miss. The final story had me so confused with its format that I didn't even finish it. Plenty can be taken from this col...

    Such a thoughtful, well-edited collection of essays, poems, and prose about love. And, goodness, the writing! Favorite pieces: 2 AM AT THE RAMEN SHOP AND I'M TRYING TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Marina Sage Carlstroem Before I Started Writing These Things Directly to You by Tavi Gevinson ...

    I?ll be honest I only bought this book because of the John green and rainbow Rowell part, but it ended up being better than I thought. Rookie on love is basically a jumble of stories from when people were younger or something of the rather, there was some random stuff. I personally l...

    I thought that this book was really cool. I was able to read a bunch of different stories from different authors about the same kind of subjects. The book discussed how to love your self, how to know what a healthy relationship looks like, and poems and stories to lift you up, and make...

    It's hard to rate this book since most of the contributions in this I liked, many I LOVED, and just a few I found tedious or trite. Overall, good collection if you're in a mood or want to mull over emotions/love/life. ...

    RookieMag did it again with this lovely collection on love and all its unintelligible forms. The little doodles throughout gave the book a naive and tender feel yet the writings were sophisticated and tugged at the big questions about how to be in love with your self, an other, an idea...

    Really, really enjoyed this. As expected, I got a lot more out of some essays than others. But this is a perfect collection of stories and essays for teenagers and twenty-somethings. I'll be re-reading it again for sure! Some of the essays were incredibly beautifully written, inspiring...

    For me, the final rating for this book was hard to pin down. I eventually settled on a 3.5. The book is a compilation of different stories coming from different perspectives and in different layouts. I really really love some of them. The works of Jenny Zhang, Florence Welch, Mitski Mi...

    Knew I would love this because I love Rookie, but was even better than I expected! Each essay was super different and covered a wide range of topics related in some way to love, sometimes romantic, but often not as well. Dog eared some pieces that I really enjoyed and pulled some quote...

    As with any anthology, there are strong and weak points. Some of the stories (and poems and comics) hit well and really resonated with me, while others were a total miss. The final story had me so confused with its format that I didn't even finish it. Plenty can be taken from this col...

    Such a thoughtful, well-edited collection of essays, poems, and prose about love. And, goodness, the writing! Favorite pieces: 2 AM AT THE RAMEN SHOP AND I'M TRYING TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Marina Sage Carlstroem Before I Started Writing These Things Directly to You by Tavi Gevinson ...

    I?ll be honest I only bought this book because of the John green and rainbow Rowell part, but it ended up being better than I thought. Rookie on love is basically a jumble of stories from when people were younger or something of the rather, there was some random stuff. I personally l...
