Romantic Melody (Book Thoughts: 19 Love Songs, David Levithan)

44599131._SX318_Nineteen short stories about love – sounds right about my alley, right? I wish I could say I enjoyed all of David Levithan’s ’19 Love Songs’ but for me it was a mixed bag. There were high points, of course, like ‘Quiz Bowl Antichrist’ about a teen in a quiz team who falls for his teammate and I also liked ‘The Woods,’ wherein a guy discovers his boyfriend’s secret: that he writes Taylor Swift fan fiction. And I especially liked the short story about young Jewish boys falling in love with the backdrop of the two of them going to Broadway shows.  But there were some stories that were just okay, or maybe I just cannot relate to them.
