    1. This review and others can be found at BW Book Reviews.I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has no influence on my rating. Would You Rather: A Memoir of Growing Up and Coming Out will be released on March 6th, 2018.4/5 – This year, I wanted to read a non-fiction book by a queer author about being queer. This spoke out to me when I saw it on Netgalley because it was exactly what I was looking for. What I didn’t expect was to relate so strongly with the aut [...]


    2. A REALLY excellent follow-up to 2014's "Never Have I Ever." It was fascinating to read about Katie's journey of self-discovery and (sorry to use this annoying phrase) self-actualization. Funny, perceptive, and well-written -- I honestly tore through this one.


    3. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing a free electronic copy of this title. With a publication date of March 2018, I read an advance ebook of this coming out memoir by Katie Heaney, a young white woman who didn't realize she was gay until her late-ish 20s. This title is actually Heaney's second memoir - the first was a story about her relationship inexperience as she entered her mid-20s, which covered how she'd never dated or had a relationship with a man, and was written while she [...]


    4. I've got to admit. I'm a little disappointed in this book. I adored Katie Heaney's first book, Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date which chronicles her misadventures as to why she's in her 20s and perpetually single. It was clever, funny, and so relatable. It was one of my favorite books of 2014. Well, since then, she's answered the question of: "Why can't I find a guy to date?" The answer? She's LGBT. I think there's a huge space for this sort of book. I haven't come across many [...]


    5. I’ll begin by saying that I have read two of Katie Heaney’s previous books, and that I was the tiniest bit weary before beginning this one. Her first memoir, Never Have I Ever, was a DNF for me (at about 75%). I found it a little shallow and juvenile, like an overlong Thought Catalog article. I later read Dear Emma, which was fine but not all that memorable (and probably more enjoyable for college-aged readers than for those of us closer in age to Heaney herself). But shortly after that book [...]


    6. Would You Rather? was a refreshing, interesting, and funny memoir. Katie Heaney came to terms with her sexuality after much reflection about her dating history and male relationships. I found it intriguing, being a native New Yorker, that the author came to this decision while on a NYC train going to work. Her focused gravitated toward female passengers instead of several handsome men around her. The author realized in that 15 minute subway epiphany ride that she wasn’t straight. Needless to s [...]


    7. I came home this afternoon and got my mail, excited because my ISBN Thinking of You shirt had arrived. But my excitement for that was curtailed when I saw a package from Penguin Random House just beneath it. What could it be this time, I wondered? Sometimes they sent things that caught my interest; other times, not so much. I hadn't heard of this book, or the author's previous memoir when I opened the box, but reading the back blurb immediately caught my interest. With no further ado, I sat down [...]


    8. Thank you to the publisher (via Netgalley) for an advance e-galley of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed Katie Heaney's first memoir (and Public Relations, the novel she co-wrote, was such a fun read), and was so happy to find that her upcoming memoir, Would You Rather, is enjoyable and interesting. Her story of the long road she took to coming out feels fresh and honest. The author is relatable, with a Midwestern self-consciousness I understand. A solid, easy read.


    9. (Full disclosure: I won an ARC of this in a giveaway.) Tore through it in a couple hours, found it even more compelling and relatable than her first memoir. I appreciated the honesty, how she writes about thinking she knew herself so so well and then keeps finding out that she doesn't, necessarily. It felt like she was trying less with this one to make everything funnier, more palatable, for the audience (which is a reflex that I totally get!). I ended up rooting for her, and also feeling a lit [...]


    10. "Would You Rather?" was a refreshing set of memoirs and essays by Katie Heaney. Heaney had already written a book about her dating misadventures, and I definitely want to read that after reading this one. In "Would You Rather?," Heaney grapples with her dating mishaps, losing her virginity late, and guys not appealing to her - because in her later twenties she finally figured out that she'd much prefer dating women. Heaney made me laugh and made me cry with her otherness, and made me feel like I [...]


    11. Honest, heartwarming memoirI have not read Kate Heaney's previous book. However I think she does an excellent job in bringing the author up to date as she shares the next leg of her journey of discovery.I was very moved by her honesty on conveying her journey to discovering her true self. I really believe this book is not just a book for the LGBTQIA community. Rather it's a book for anyone who has questioned who they were or what they really want or need from their lives.I received an advance re [...]


    12. There's no such thing as coming out too late, and I loved reading about Heaney coming to realize that over the course of these essays. The one on Harry Styles is the only part of this book that I really couldn't wait to get done with, but even then, I can relate (to a degree) to the nature of that sort of obsessive behavior. Overall: Nice.



    13. Here's the thing about Katie's story: not much happens. That's probably why it took me so long to finish it. Yes, it takes her a bit longer to find out who she is and what she wants from a relationship than most. Then again, who hasn't taken a little while to figure out who to love, what career path to take, what dreams to pursue, etc.? I guess that's what makes this book so relatable. We're all trying to figure out what we really want in some way. That's just part of living. It takes courage to [...]


    14. Katie spends far too much of this second memoir justifying and apologizing for her first. (Because her first portrayed her as a straight woman yearning for romantic partnership with a man and her second details her coming out as a queer woman, she's worried- openly worried!- that her readers "aren't going to like her anymore"- she deals with that precise fear for far too many paragraphs.) I can see that you would want to bring it up once, but I don't need to read variations of it shoehorned into [...]


    15. I won an advanced, uncorrected proof copy in exchange for an honest review. The story is great. I can definitely step into Katie’s shoes and view her life as she was questioning herself. However, I have noticed odd grammatical errors that seemed to just make me a little questionable about what type of audience the book was guided towards (a few lines use “and I was like !!!!!” And “Really???”). Other than that, I really did like the content in the book. I would recommend looking over t [...]


    16. I really enjoyed reading about Katie's experiences, and I was able to identify with parts of her story: being in my late 20s before I really realized that I was gay and not dating, let alone falling in love, before then.




    17. I won this book in a Giveaway.3.5 Katie Heaney's Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date read a little like chick lit (girl searches hopelessly for a boy). This new book changes tack (girl realizes that she maybe, sort of, okay, definitely, probably likes girls) and, while funny, digs deeper.
