    Official blurb: This is Kind of an Epic Love Story is a bighearted rom-com that belongs on the big screen. This hilarious and breathless love story of two boys on the path to their happy ending beyond lives up to its title. SUPPORT THIS BOOK!!!! ...

    gay childhood best friends to lovers is literally the only reason i am still alive ...

    Sadly, the only thing epic about this is how epically it did not live up to its title. There is plenty of diversity to be found in this novel but the awesome of that is totally negated by the frustrating af characters that were totally flat and/or annoying. Additionally there were ...

    Devoured this in a single commute home and it was so. Freaking. Cute. Really excited to see HoH rep in queer lit, because Deaf/HoH characters is actually something I get requests for a lot on the LGBTQReads Tumblr and I almost never have recs except for this one adult f/f Romance. This...

    When I saw this book pop up on my feed a couple weeks ago, I was instantly intrigued. Friends-to-lovers? Diverse characters and representation? An epic love story? Sign me up for that please. It's safe to say that I was thrilled when I came across this book on Edelweiss and was approv...

    nice mlm romcom idea you have there ...

    2.75 Stars I had a hard time with this book. I wanted to love it so much, and I did enjoy it - I think. But so many of the characters frustrated me, and the story felt rushed at times so I found myself apathetic during long stretches of reading. This is Kind of an Epic Love Story fo...

    Okay so let?s break this down because I have some things to say. I really liked the idea of this book. I did. But I think that?s where I draw the line. I liked that this book was very diverse, I mean it had a black bisexual MC with a deaf love interest! But I feel like ...

    I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK AND YOU ALL SHOULD GO READ IT BECAUSE IT IS TRULY AMAZING AND LOVEABLE ...

    I'm sad. I'm really sad that I hated this book as much as I did. Maybe hate is a strong word, but while I was reading I felt sad, frustrated, annoyed and all kinds of other negative emotions. To start of, I was really excited about this book. I thought this was going to be a cute lo...

    Between the books referenced in the synopsis and the too cute for words cover, I knew I had to read this book, and Callender delivered on everything that was promised. Nate was one super sweet and wonderfully awkward hero. Gosh! I loved him to bits! Nate was down with love, and fear...

    This was kind of an epic turd. Yikes. Listen, I'm gonna try hard to not be an asshole here, but I find it super difficult to see the reason this book was published. I mean, this book has the same depth and complexity of a wannabe hipster, but really really basic high schooler. It ...

    This was really really cuttte!!!!! 1. Our MC is black and bi and his love interest is deaf and this is A DIVERSE READ AND I LOVED THE SWEET DIVERSITY. So much good stuff???? 2. The MC takes time to learn ASL so he can talk to his boyyyy and this was beautiful ? 3. The frien...

    DNF @ 192 pages Oh, the high hopes I had for this one! It's contemporary, it's YA, it had a synopsis that hooked me, and my trusted book buddy gave it 4 stars. But no, I have no love for this set of miserable characters. Main character Nate was thoroughly unlikable. He was moody ...

    2.5 stars. This book somehow managed to have more drama than a CW show, but was still boring. The only things I enjoyed about this were the diverse cast of characters (MC is black & bi, love interest is deaf/hard of hearing and signs) and the way sex is discussed. I also wish the a...

    3.5* Super cute. Super diverse. A ton of queer rep. Deaf rep. Nate was loveable and frustrating all rolled into a ball. He kind of lets his friends walk all over him because he's afraid of hurting anyone's feelings(Flo can piss right the hell off. She fully takes advantage of him...

    Between the books referenced in the synopsis and the too cute for words cover, I knew I had to read this book, and Callender delivered on everything that was promised. Nate was one super sweet and wonderfully awkward hero. Gosh! I loved him to bits! Nate was down with love, and fear...

    2.5 stars. This book somehow managed to have more drama than a CW show, but was still boring. The only things I enjoyed about this were the diverse cast of characters (MC is black & bi, love interest is deaf/hard of hearing and signs) and the way sex is discussed. I also wish the a...

    I don?t have words for how happy this book made me. I relate so much to Nate?s anxieties and it was so lovely watching him come to terms with his fears. The first thing that struck me about this book is the effortless diversity. Queer characters are just allowed to exist without...

    #RWLChallenge: A book released by a publishing house that is owned or managed by a woman. This will be a hit with the intended audience, and I'm really sad it's not getting more attention. The queer rep is great but the HOH rep is the best I have seen in the genre. Also, props to K...

    3.5* Super cute. Super diverse. A ton of queer rep. Deaf rep. Nate was loveable and frustrating all rolled into a ball. He kind of lets his friends walk all over him because he's afraid of hurting anyone's feelings(Flo can piss right the hell off. She fully takes advantage of him...

    2.5 I'm sure some people will find this entertaining. Especially as there's good rep on many accounts, including a deaf boy and sign language. There was just way too much dumb teenage-drama for me. ...

    This was hella readable, super sweet, and fun. The characters were so messy and I loved it. Also, my son Ollie is perfect and can do no wrong ever. ...

    DNF @ 192 pages Oh, the high hopes I had for this one! It's contemporary, it's YA, it had a synopsis that hooked me, and my trusted book buddy gave it 4 stars. But no, I have no love for this set of miserable characters. Main character Nate was thoroughly unlikable. He was moody ...

    Official blurb: This is Kind of an Epic Love Story is a bighearted rom-com that belongs on the big screen. This hilarious and breathless love story of two boys on the path to their happy ending beyond lives up to its title. SUPPORT THIS BOOK!!!! ...

    Sadly, the only thing epic about this is how epically it did not live up to its title. There is plenty of diversity to be found in this novel but the awesome of that is totally negated by the frustrating af characters that were totally flat and/or annoying. Additionally there were ...

    Devoured this in a single commute home and it was so. Freaking. Cute. Really excited to see HoH rep in queer lit, because Deaf/HoH characters is actually something I get requests for a lot on the LGBTQReads Tumblr and I almost never have recs except for this one adult f/f Romance. This...

    When I saw this book pop up on my feed a couple weeks ago, I was instantly intrigued. Friends-to-lovers? Diverse characters and representation? An epic love story? Sign me up for that please. It's safe to say that I was thrilled when I came across this book on Edelweiss and was approv...

    2.75 Stars I had a hard time with this book. I wanted to love it so much, and I did enjoy it - I think. But so many of the characters frustrated me, and the story felt rushed at times so I found myself apathetic during long stretches of reading. This is Kind of an Epic Love Story fo...

    Okay so let?s break this down because I have some things to say. I really liked the idea of this book. I did. But I think that?s where I draw the line. I liked that this book was very diverse, I mean it had a black bisexual MC with a deaf love interest! But I feel like ...

    I'm sad. I'm really sad that I hated this book as much as I did. Maybe hate is a strong word, but while I was reading I felt sad, frustrated, annoyed and all kinds of other negative emotions. To start of, I was really excited about this book. I thought this was going to be a cute lo...

    Between the books referenced in the synopsis and the too cute for words cover, I knew I had to read this book, and Callender delivered on everything that was promised. Nate was one super sweet and wonderfully awkward hero. Gosh! I loved him to bits! Nate was down with love, and fear...

    You can see my full review here! *I received an eArc of this book from the Publishers through Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* This was so frustrating. Which led to me taking a while to figure out an actual rating. There?s so much I wanted to love about this?I was ...

    2.5 stars. This book somehow managed to have more drama than a CW show, but was still boring. The only things I enjoyed about this were the diverse cast of characters (MC is black & bi, love interest is deaf/hard of hearing and signs) and the way sex is discussed. I also wish the a...

    I?m kind of conflicted by the recent influx of queer YA books, because while it?s amazing that these stories are becoming normalized, sometimes you get one like this which is just fine as a story but feels like it wouldn?t be substantive enough to be published if it wasn?t abou...

    I received ARC in exchange for an honest review. RTC I thought I will always love gay love stories...Well, I was wrong. ...

    I don?t have words for how happy this book made me. I relate so much to Nate?s anxieties and it was so lovely watching him come to terms with his fears. The first thing that struck me about this book is the effortless diversity. Queer characters are just allowed to exist without...

    #RWLChallenge: A book released by a publishing house that is owned or managed by a woman. This will be a hit with the intended audience, and I'm really sad it's not getting more attention. The queer rep is great but the HOH rep is the best I have seen in the genre. Also, props to K...

    3.5* Super cute. Super diverse. A ton of queer rep. Deaf rep. Nate was loveable and frustrating all rolled into a ball. He kind of lets his friends walk all over him because he's afraid of hurting anyone's feelings(Flo can piss right the hell off. She fully takes advantage of him...

    2.5 I'm sure some people will find this entertaining. Especially as there's good rep on many accounts, including a deaf boy and sign language. There was just way too much dumb teenage-drama for me. ...

    This was hella readable, super sweet, and fun. The characters were so messy and I loved it. Also, my son Ollie is perfect and can do no wrong ever. ...

    I liked this book a lot, but I just didn't love it. Like, I really liked the characters and their relationships because they were super messy and real, but they could get incredibly frustrating at times. I just have quite a few feelings on this which I'll probably express in a longer r...
