"HONEY GIRL is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved every moment of it."
?? Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal

When becoming an adult means learning to love yourself first.
With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, twenty-eight-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls' trip to Vegas to celebrate. She's a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn't know...until she does exactly that.
This one moment of departure from her stern ex-military father's plans for her life has Grace wondering why she doesn't feel more fulfilled from completing her degree. Staggering under the weight of her parent's expectations, a struggling job market and feelings of burnout, Grace flees her home in Portland for a summer in New York with the wife she barely knows.
In New York, she's able to ignore all the constant questions about her future plans and falls hard for her creative and beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she's been running from all along??the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adul

Not only is “Honey Girl” the best book I’ve read this year but it’s also one of the best books I’ve read PERIOD. There is so much to love about this story, and it’s one I’m going to be reading again and again. ( )

audio fiction (10+ hours) - As a queer Black/mixed race astronomy PhD with an unexpected lack of job prospects, Grace Porter from Portland, Oregon (with a mother about to remarry in Florida) can't stop thinking about a Japanese-American woman Yuki from NYC she met/married one night in Las Vegas.

This is a refreshingly unconventional and also very sweet falling-in-love story (and also a getting-through-a-quarter-life-crisis-what-do-I-do-when-no-one-hires-me-after-I-finish-my-doctorate-degree story). Narration on the audio is excellent and I love Grace's romantic way of talking about the astronomy stuff, as well as Yuki's concern for all of the lonely people she shares her podcast with. The complex relationships Grace has with Yuki, family and chosen-family friends are also interesting and love-filled. The psych therapy drags a bit toward the end, but this makes the story more realistic (finding and working with a therapist is often a long process compounded by the shortage of therapists of color) and I think that's also important.

Feb 2024 bingo challenge: two word title, Black cover model, published in February, takes place in NYC (and Oregon and Florida), includes a birthday and a wedding. ( )

Wow I didn't like this. I want entertained in any way and just really didn't enjoy it. I'm bored by Yuki saying Deep Thoughts and calling herself a monster. I felt like she was trying to be the emo kid when I was thirteen. Boring and unfounded. Porter isn't better, with her Issues. The overall story is quite boring, and the latter half is actual pages of conversation with a therapist. It felt like a cheap way to let people get a therapy taster, but unless the author has a psych practice, I feel weird about writing actual therapist conversations out. Nothing was a surprise. I didn't really like any of the characters. It was less of a story and more like a diary. ( )

A little less than 4 stars. The beginning of the book was closer to a 3 star read for me - I wasn't really drawn in (and even forgot what I was reading a few times). I think it was the writing style maybe? I feel like I've been saying that a lot lately. But the end of the book was much better and very deep and resonated with me in some aspects (obviously not all of them). And perhaps that is why the start was a little slower, we had to build up and get to know these characters before we got to the deeper stuff so everything made sense. ( )

Honey Girl is a love letter to everyone who has anxiety, who has felt out of place in the world where they try so desperately to find their place. I was moved by every page, every struggle, every moment of self doubt. ( )
