I listen to a lot of audiobooks, read a lot of library books and e-books, still somehow never have enough room on my bookshelves.

Far from Home

Far from Home - Lorelie Brown This was really sweet, and I pretty much read straight through it. I liked the inter-cultural aspect of the relationship, and how Pari was seen as beautiful but not some eroticised princess or something. The progression of them falling from acquaintances to lust to love made sense to me, and I liked Rachel exploring her sexuality. The UST was great.

There's a pretty heavy plot dealing with Rachel's eating disorder and adjacent mental health issues, which was a bit more serious than I wanted in a fluffy marriage of convenience novel, though as far as I could tell it was handled well, and I like that True Love didn't cure her.

I'd definitely be happy never to read the word "demisexual" in anything not on tumblr ever again.
