The Story

HENRY HAMLET’S HEART synopsis from the publisher:

HENRY HAMLET’S HEART by Rhiannon Wilde

A sparkling queer YA romance set in Brisbane, Henry Hamlet’s Heart follows one guy and his sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking journey to love.

Henry Hamlet doesn’t know what he wants after school ends. It’s his last semester of year twelve and all he’s sure of is his uncanny ability to make situations awkward. Luckily, he can always hide behind his enigmatic best friend, Len. They’ve been friends since forever, but where Len is mysterious, Henry is clumsy; where Len is a heart-throb, Henry is a neurotic mess. Somehow it’s always worked.

That is, until Henry falls. Hard. For the last person he imagined.

From an exciting debut author comes this passionate story of growing up, letting go, and learning how to love.

My Review: Henry Hamlet’s Heart

A YA friends-to-lovers romance, Henry Hamlet’s Heart is irresistible. A must read queer romance.

It starts with a dare at a party.  

Then a kiss.

And then feelings.  Then an avalanche of want and more feelings that finds Henry in a space he wasn’t quite prepared for.

Wilde’s story and characters will have readers instantly recalling their own high school experiences, while simultaneously rooting for the adorable Henry Hamlet and his first crush/love.

It is an emotional read, with some very heartbreaking moments.  Be prepared for that ending, because my heart shattered into a million unrecognizable pieces and then mended a few chapters later, giving me all the feels for this charmingly delightful book.

Pre-order this one book friends!

Happy Reading ~ Cece
