58/100 Books: KNOW NOT WHY


KNOW NOT WHY by Hannah Johnson

What the heck is it about? Here’s the summary:

Howie gets a job at Artie Kraft’s Arts ‘N Crafts hoping to score with his lady coworkers. After all, girls love a sensitive guy, and what’s more sensitive than dedicating your life to selling yarn and … stuff? (Okay, so maybe it’d be a good idea to actually learn what one sells at an arts ‘n crafts store.) But things don’t go exactly according to plan. Coworker #1 is Cora: tiny, much-pierced, and way too fierce to screw with in any sense. Coworker #2 is Kristy: blonde, bubbly, unattainable perfection. And Coworker #3 is, well, Arthur. It goes without saying that he’s not an option. Right?

… Right?

Yeah, Howie’s life just got straight up confusing.

Pun intended.

My rating: 4/5 stars

If you’re looking for a cute and fast read, check this one out! It’s full of humor and awkward moments and everything I love about contemporary romances. It’s a great book to curl up with on a rainy day.

My only caveat is the typical bisexual erasure that’s so common in m/m romances. The main character goes from girl-obsessed to “Oh I guess I was gay the whole time!” faster than you can say “bisexuals are a thing, too.” Even the one bisexual character breaks out the ol’ “I love who I love” nonsense instead of claiming an identity. It doesn’t ruin the whole book, but that sorta thing gets old.
