I'm a student, so I don't have nearly as much time for leisure reading as I'd like. If I manage to read an entire course book instead of just the assigned chapters, I'll review that here, too.

Being Emily

Being Emily - Rachel Gold A very typical narrative of coming out and beginning transition, down to the "always knew" and "wants surgery", but well-written and written with compassion, if a little too much centering on the feelings of Emily's cis girlfriend. Let this also work as a warning: For most of the novel, Emily is constantly misgendered in pronouns when the novel shifts to Claire's third-person narration, to the point that calling her "she" and "Emily" is actually rare, despite her womanhood being the very subject of the novel.
