Cover Crush: Sorry, Bro by Taleen Voskuni
Sorry, Bro by Taleen Voskuni has such a delightful cover! I love the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge or maybe it is a sunrise, either way the splendid illustration makes me want to have a picnic in the park! I can just feel the happy vibes emanating from this cover. This adult sapphic romcom debut includes two Armenian-American MCs and one finally coming out as bisexual and owning her identity. Add this one to the growing list of adult queer romcoms that I have devouring this past year and excited to read, releasing January 31st!
Thank you Berkley Books for the advance copy!

An Armenian-American woman rediscovers her roots and embraces who she really is in this vibrant and heartfelt queer rom-com by debut author Taleen Voskuni.
When Nar’s non-Armenian boyfriend gets down on one knee and proposes to her in front of a room full of drunk San Francisco tech boys, she realizes it’s time to find someone who shares her idea of romance.
Enter her mother: armed with plenty of mom-guilt and a spreadsheet of Facebook-stalked Armenian men, she convinces Nar to attend Explore Armenia, a month-long series of events in the city. But it’s not the mom-approved playboy doctor or wealthy engineer who catches her eye—it’s Erebuni, a woman as equally immersed in the witchy arts as she is in preserving Armenian identity. Suddenly, with Erebuni as her wingwoman, the events feel like far less of a chore, and much more of an adventure. Who knew cooking up kuftes together could be so . . . sexy?
Erebuni helps Nar see the beauty of their shared culture and makes her feel understood in a way she never has before. But there’s one teeny problem: Nar’s not exactly out as bisexual. The clock is ticking on Nar’s double life, though—the closing event banquet is coming up, and her entire extended family will be there, along with Erebuni. Her worlds will inevitably collide, but Nar is determined to be brave, determined to claim her happiness: proudly Armenian, proudly bisexual, and proudly herself for the first time in her life.
