That said, the biggest issue for me was that the narrative seemed to be having somewhat of an identity crisis with who the audience was supposed to be. Now, I don't mean this is a super sex positive book, or these characters care about physical affection. Said human happens to be Sean, the dreamy, chubby, lifeguard/school swimmer/wanna-be film director who got dumped by his boyfriend. I also thought the writing could've been better, though I found myself pretty satisfied with the writing as is. But, as one may imagine, not everything will go according to plan and Ross will discover that maybe humans aren't that bad after all.

But sadly, Out of the Blue was a massive disappointment for me, and I had to struggle to finish its last part. Truss had hatched a plan to cut childcare costs by slashing the number of adults required to supervise children, which unsurprisingly proved controversial. And I KNOW that because I was 100% the formerly chubby child who swam their ass off and trained at that level. This is definitely a feel good book, though there are some mentions of some sad topics, this book is filled with so much joy!The book follows two perspectives: Crest, a teen merperson, who, within one moon cycle, has to help a human to become an Elder and Sean, a human lifeguard who's miserable because of a recent break-up. What I mean is, not only does sex as a topic come up at times where it feels really strange, and not only do we get random "as a top" moments where a character is bringing up his sexual role as a personality trait (weird but okay, man), but the thing that Crest thinks about the most when it comes to the biggest decision of their entire life is all about sex. They’ve pollluted the planet so much that there’s a floating island of trash that’s literally the size of a country. Contributors: Auður Ava Olafsdóttir, Kristín Eiríksdóttir, Þórarinn Eldjárn, Gyrðir Elíasson, Einar Örn Gunnarsson, Ólafur Gunnarsson, Einar Már Guðmundsson, Auður Jónsdóttir, Gerður Kristný, Andri Snær Magnason, Óskar Magnússon, Bragi Ólafsson, Kristín Ómarsdóttir, Óskar Árni Óskarsson, Magnús Sigurðsson, Jón Kalman Stefánsson, Ágúst Borgþór Sverrisson, Guðmundur Andri Thorsson, Þórunn Erlu-Valdimarsdóttir, Rúnar Helgi Vignisson. Set against the backdrop of the frenzied Edinburgh festival, Out of the Blue tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are.

Splashy, voicey, and prescient, this fish-out-of-water tale (pun intended) is the perfect rom-com to have in your beach bag this summer. But as the two spend more time together, and Crest’s perspective on humans begins to change, they’ll soon be torn between two worlds. I couldn't take any of it seriously and it just made me feel like the characters were even less mature and fleshed out.On the screen, a slim, copper-colored woman lies slumped over a pile of broken wood and burst watermelons. It just wasn't one that I could connect to or get invested in, and the intense focus on sex was alienating and off putting. If you can accept it for what it is: a silly, fun, teen rom-com with a bit of magic included, you'll love this book! This next part might be minorly spoilery, but it’s only to do with the need for a true ‘romance’ to have a Happy Ever After or Happy For Now rather than the actual events in the ending of the book. Here, an extraordinary pair of earrings showcase two mesmerising unenhanced purple sapphires of over 4 total carats, each nestled within a layout of diamond and gold coral motifs.

Crest is also certain humans are awful, is really rude about people existing, and weirdly is super offended by people eating fish. This extraordinary collection, the first anthology of Icelandic short fiction published in English translation, features work by twenty of Iceland’s most popular and celebrated living authors—including Andri Snær Magnason, Jón Kalman Stefánsson, Kristín Ómarsdóttir, and Auður Jónsdóttir—granddaughter of Halldór Laxness, who won the 1955 Nobel Prize in Literature. Because while I appreciate what Jason June was trying to do with the body positivity aspect of the story, by having both Sean and Kavya be thicc and curvy.In a very blue house on a very blue street, sits a little boy who feels as blue as the world around him. If you're looking for a summer read - "Out of the Blue" is a great choice, it's got a beautiful ocean setting, a cute romance (fake dating! His dad’s reaction is lovely, leading to a happier life for his son, and a brighter one for everyone. So many fun tropes are in this book: the fake dating, opposites attract, the film-student obsessed with movies and wanting their own "movie moment" in real life, and the rushing against time to fulfil a goal trope. It's really nice to see not only a whole society of people without a gender binary, but also a love interest happily using they/them pronouns and no one flinching.
