Welcome to the actually on time April episode of the Spines With Wines live book club! We know, we’re pretty proud of ourselves too.
Spines With Wines is made up of myself (Cassie-la), book blogger/BookTuber Kristin Hackett and illustrator Melissa Kay and involves talking about books while drinking wine. Your pretty standard book club activities.
In this episode, Kristin and I (minus Melissa) discuss the super cute and happy-making Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli.
Want to take part next month? We’ll be discussion A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas on May 13th, time TBD!

From the award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda comes a funny, authentic novel about sisterhood, love, and identity.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
