Why this book?
It’s gay Harry Potter—your favorite slash fic, but better. Rainbow Rowell has an incredible grasp on writing the believably angst-filled, enemies-to-lovers pairing with the backdrop of a magic school background and a clever magic system. This is the first of a trilogy (so far) and I’m dying for more. No other book has made me squee like a proper fangirl and run around the house in delight like this one. The three books incorporate stellar character growth and, although bisexuality takes a back seat to being the Chosen One, there’s no bi-baiting (it’s blatantly discussed later in the series). Guys, I just can’t. I can’t! I have to go reread this now (again).
